Teams interested in trading for Derek Carrier or Asante Cleveland

Aug 18, 2015 at 8:42 AM--


According to Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area, the San Francisco 49ers are receiving calls from teams that are interested in dealing for a tight end. Specifically, they are interested in Derek Carrier or Asante Cleveland.


Both tight ends played on Saturday against the Texans. Carrier had one catch for 5 yards while Cleveland had three catches for 10 yards.

Maiocco later stated that the Washington Redskins and New England Patriots are likely to be the teams that have spoken with the 49ers. He also states that, because of a $400,000 signing bonus that Carrier got in the offseason as part of an extension, the price might be higher for him.

The 49ers do need help at multiple positions, with the offensive line and defensive backs possibly being the team's biggest area of concern.

Other tight ends currently on the roster include Vernon Davis, Vance McDonald, Garrett Celek, Blake Bell, Xavier Grimble, and Busta Anderson.

Deebo Samuel hasn't always gotten much respect from Rams defensive lineman Aaron Donald, so it's not surprising he doesn't seem too eager to get to know Donald in person at some point. Donald was asked how to stop Samuel after a loss to the 49ers in 2020, to which he replied, "Who? Who's that?" Samuel responded on the field last season with 17 catches for 199 receiving yards and a touchdown in two wins over the Rams, then took a shot back at Donald via social media after the second of those two wins. With the Rams on the schedule this weekend, Samuel was asked by reporters after practice



Here's how John Lynch responded when asked if 49ers might be interested in Antonio Brown

Wide receiver Antonio Brown cleared waivers on Friday after being released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday. That officially makes him a free agent. However, teams may be hesitant to sign him given how things ended with his former team. During the third quarter of the Buccaneers' Week 17 contest against the New York Jets, Brown shockingly took off his helmet, jersey, and pads, and then exited MetLife Stadium. "He is no longer a Buc," head coach Bruce Arians said after the game. On Friday morning, before Brown cleared waivers, San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch took part in his weekly KNBR interview. Surprisingly, he was asked if his team might be interested in Brown given his 49ers might be headed to the playoffs with a win over

In Week 18, Gould converted both of his field goals—from 42 and 24 yards—and all three point after attempts for a total of nine points in the overtime win at SoFi Stadium. He also punted twice with an average of 45 yards, including one downed inside the 20-yard line.
