49ers trade C Nick Easton for MLB Gerald Hodges

Oct 6, 2015 at 1:20 PM--


According to NFL Network's Rand Getlin, the San Francisco 49ers have acquired MLB Gerald Hodges via a trade with the Minnesota Vikings.

The 49ers traded away C Nick Easton and a 6th round draft selection. On September 5, the team had acquired Easton from the Baltimore Ravens for a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2016 draft.

Hodges was drafted out of Penn State by the Vikings in the 4th round of the 2013 NFL Draft. He has 71 tackles, 0.5 sacks, and an interception during his time in Minnesota. He had played in four games this season, starting three.

Prior to the draft, NFL.com graded Hodges at 72/100, listing him as a second or third round pick. They felt that he would eventually be a starter in the NFL and compared him to former linebacker Quincy Black of the Buccaneers.

Hodges, who is 24 years old, is 6-2 and 236 lbs.

Tight end George Kittle is excited about the potential of the San Francisco 49ers offense in 2022. He knows Trey Lance at quarterback will open things up for an already creative play-caller like Kyle Shanahan. The always enthusiastic Kittle was among several 49ers players who joined KNBR after Tuesday's practice. Of course, the conversation eventually drifted toward the team's new starting quarterback. The tight end loves what he's seen from Lance compared to where the 22-year-old was just a year ago. "Honestly, my favorite thing about Trey right now is that I've just seen him get better, honestly," Kittle said on the Papa & Lund show. "From where he was last year in OTAs to where he was at training camp last year, to throughout the season last year, to even

Not everything was perfect for the San Francisco 49ers in their 28-21 win over the Green Bay Packers on Friday night, but there's no doubt the vibe coming out of the win was mostly positive. Trey Lance and the other 49ers quarterbacks played well in the win, going a combined 15-of-22 for 212 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions. A number of rookie players got extended reps, and several of them did a fine job with their opportunities. Following the game, head coach Kyle Shanahan talked about those issues and more, while Lance, rookie cornerback Samuel Womack and wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud were among those to meet with reporters. Here's a rundown of some of the key issues discussed, including what Shanahan thinks of Womack's performance to this point,

Drake Jackson left Friday night's preseason game against the Green Bay Packers with a shoulder stinger. He was back on the practice field on Sunday, as the team prepares to travel to Minnesota for joint practices with the Vikings. Reporters noticed Jackson wasn't at 100 percent during the Sunday session, but the good news is that things are trending upwards for the defensive lineman's health. "It feels good," Jackson said of his shoulder after practice. "Just taking it day by day. It's getting better each and every day, rehabbing it, and things of that sort." Despite the early exit, Jackson loved getting into his first NFL game action. "It felt good," he said. "It felt like I'm back, back on the field. I missed playing football since 'SC. It's been a
