49ers are ‘very interested’ in WR Torrey Smith

Mar 7, 2015 at 8:16 PM--


According to ESPN insider Adam Caplan, the San Francisco 49ers are very interested in Baltimore Ravens wide receiver and pending free agent Torrey Smith.

Smith has been with the Ravens since they selected him in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft. He has recorded 213 receptions for 3,591 yards and 30 receiving touchdowns in his 62 starts out of 64 games in his career.

Smith and current 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin helped the Ravens defeat the 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII.

The 49ers likely see Smith as the deep threat that they need in order to stretch the field on offense.

Teams are currently free to begin discussions with the agents of upcoming free agents. However, free agents cannot officially sign with a new team until Tuesday at 1 PM Pacific.

49ers-Eagles: Kyle Shanahan explains why he didn't challenge WR DeVonta Smith's fourth-down catch

It didn't wind up making a huge difference in the end, but the decision on the 49ers' end to not challenge what was incorrectly called a catch by Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith on the first drive of Sunday's NFC Championship game could have resulted in a healthy amount of second-guessing towards 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, had the game wound up being much closer than it was. But, as Shanahan explained after the game, the 49ers didn't see the angle of the play that would have overturned the original call, and the Eagles were able to get their next play off before anyone had a chance to review the play.
