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.

Monson explains why trading young 49ers stars for Deshaun Watson isn't unthinkable

Sam Monson, the lead analyst for Pro Football Focus, feels the trade partner that makes the most sense for Deshaun Watson is the Miami Dolphins. That is, assuming the quarterback can force the Houston Texans to trade him. The Dolphins have a lot of draft capital to surrender, including two first-rounders this year, and could be a quarterback away from contending. Another team that could be considered built to win now is the San Francisco 49ers. However, they do not have as appealing a portfolio of draft picks as Miami. That would mean that to compete in a bidding war for a player like Watson — and there is no evidence that they would consider it — San Francisco would need to throw in some young proven talent into an offer that would also include draft

Former GM convinced Kyle Shanahan, 49ers remain interested in these two QBs

Former NFL general manager Michael Lombardi, now a contributor at The Athletic, doesn't buy into John Lynch's recent declaration that the San Francisco 49ers are content heading into the 2021 season with Jimmy Garoppolo at the helm. If they were, he doesn't feel that the team would be calling around the league to inquire about anyone who might be available. Most assume that Lynch is doing his due diligence as free agency and the draft quickly approaches. "They are too active, too aggressive to run it back one more year with someone they don't have complete trust in,"
