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.

Nick Mullens will make his ninth NFL start on Sunday when the San Francisco 49ers play the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, along with several other starters, is sidelined with an injury. Mullens was 8-of-11 for 71 yards with an interception and a passer rating of 51.7 during last weekend's 31-13 win over the New York Jets after Garoppolo left with a high-ankle sprain. Mullens has the support of his teammates and a reputation for preparing like a starter despite receiving few practice reps. "Nick's confident in the whole game plan," tight end George Kittle, who is among those who will not play on Sunday, said this past week. "He's got it locked in, and he's going to have a great game. ... We're definitely in good hands if Jimmy

Rapid Reaction to the 49ers' 24-20 Loss to the Cardinals

1) The Cardinals are good While the 49ers should have been able to get a win today, let's not lose sight of the improvements made by the Arizona Cardinals. DeAndre Hopkins dominated the secondary today with 14 catches for 151 yards. He was open a lot and the 49ers were not able to give much of an answer for his play today. Kyler Murray ran for 91 yards, passed for 230 yards, and had two total touchdowns. The ground game was good, their defense was scrappy, and their playcalling was not predictable. San Francisco had a lot of opportunities, which I'll go into, but the performance by the Cardinals should not be discounted. They are a playoff contender and will not be an easy out this year. They still have weaknesses, especially if you can force Murray to throw

Wake up, Kyle Shanahan. As of September 14th 2020, Super Bowl 55 looks like a distant pipe dream. Yesterday, the San Francsico 49ers fell to the Arizona Cardinals in the opener of the 2020 NFL season. After getting off to a blazing start, jumping out to a 10-0 lead, the 49ers couldn't keep the heat on and lost at home to a team that accumulated only 5 wins in 2019. This Cardinals team isn't special. Often fans can find solace in a loss by heaping praise upon the opponent. Not today. Arizona signal caller QB Kyler Murray will be praised in the media for his efforts, but in reality, Murray was inaccurate often and relied heavily on newly acquired star WR DeAndre Hopkins to carry him through this one. Murray threw the ball 40 times for 230 yards, registering a measly 5.8 yards
