49ers agree to 5-year, $40 million deal with WR Torrey Smith

Mar 10, 2015 at 1:43 PM--

On Tuesday, the San Francisco 49ers agreed to terms with wide receiver Torrey Smith, formerly of the Baltimore Ravens. The deal is for five-years, $40 million with $22 million guaranteed. He will be joining another former Raven in Anquan Boldin and help to stretch the field for opposing defenses.

Smith was widely considered one of the top receivers in free agency and could be a good fit for Colin Kaepernick, the team's strong armed quarterback.

Smith was with the Ravens since being selected 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 Boldin helped the Ravens defeat the 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII.

It was reported earlier today that Boldin played a big part in getting Smith to San Francisco. He helped the 49ers in the recruitment process.

'This was never about this year': Rapoport says 49ers should not regret drafting Trey Lance over Mac Jones

Mac Jones is having an impressive rookie year. His New England Patriots have won four in a row and sit at 6-4. The rookie quarterback completed 82.6 percent of his passes and threw three touchdowns in a 45-7 rout of the Cleveland Browns over the weekend. Meanwhile, in Santa Clara, rookie Trey Lance, selected 12 spots ahead of Jones at No. 3 overall, hasn't received too many opportunities with the San Francisco 49ers. Of course, that was always the plan. Lance was drafted to eventually replace starter Jimmy Garoppolo, but use his rookie season to learn from the veteran quarterback and his coaches. Lance, after all, had limited experience at the collegiate level. Shanahan fell in love with Lance's potential. That's what made the 49ers trade to move up to select the

The San Francisco 49ers rewarded Fred Warner with a 5-year, $95 million contract extension during the offseason. The star linebacker looked to be worth every penny of that deal with how he played in his first three NFL seasons. Warner recorded four sacks, 14 quarterback hits, three interceptions, and five forced fumbles during that span. This season, Warner has no sacks, no quarterback hits, no interceptions, and no forced fumbles. His Pro Football Focus grade of 71.3 is the second-highest of his career, but a significant drop from the career-high grade of 88.6 earned last season. In pass coverage, opposing quarterbacks have completed 20 passes and a touchdown on 24 targets in Warner's direction, per Pro Football Focus. The 83.3 percent completion percentage given up this

49ers' Kyle Shanahan defends decision to play veteran corners over rookies

Fans would prefer to see what San Francisco 49ers rookie cornerbacks Deommodore Lenoir and Ambry Thomas can do. Instead, head coach Kyle Shanahan and defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans have opted to play veterans Josh Norman and Dre Kirkpatrick, neither of which is signed beyond this season. On a side note, Norman signed with the Niners because he wanted to play for a contender. San Francisco currently sits at 3-5 and last place in the NFC West. The 49ers entered the season with several defensive backs on one-year deals. It was a move to ensure a solid starting lineup for a 2021 playoff run, but the team didn't do much to secure viable backup plans. The Niners were relying on an injury-plagued player, Jason Verrett, to be the centerpiece of the cornerback

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 10 contest against the Los Angeles Rams on Monday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. The Rams will be without wide receiver Robert Woods, who suffered a torn ACL during Friday's practice. However, the void could be mitigated with newly-signed wideout Odell Beckham Jr., who is expected to play and complement star receiver Cooper Kupp against the 49ers. Not that it was much of a question, but WR Odell Beckham Jr. will make his Rams' debut vs. the 49ers on Monday Night Football, per sources.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter)
