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.

The San Francisco 49ers had their bounce-back game in Week 2 after a successful trouncing of the woeful New York Jets. Both sides of the ball looked far more polished, with only a handful of errors sprinkled throughout the game. However, nothing sums up the 49ers' win more than a meme that made the rounds of Twitter on Sunday afternoon. Young Gamora: Did you do it? Thanos: Yes. Young Gamora: What did it cost? Thanos: Everything. Though 'everything' still seems too light a word to describe the outcome. Defensive end Nick Bosa and defensive lineman Solomon Thomas suffered season-ending knee injuries within moments of each other. Their combined loss will

Nick Bosa: 49ers not too shaken up about loss to Cardinals, will 'come back strong'

The San Francisco 49ers weren't about making excuses following their 24-20 Week 1 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. There could have been plenty — being rusty from no preseason, injuries, the lack of a normal offseason. All NFL teams across the league had to deal with at least two of those, though. The situation wasn't unique to the 49ers. You'll probably hear a lot more this week about the potential for a Super Bowl hangover. 49ers players aren't using that as an excuse either. While the goal is to get back to and win the big game this season, players have continually said they are taking things one week at a time and remain focused on each opponent ahead of them. "I mean, I hope we're not thinking about last year. We just played a

Analytics site Pro Football Focus released its grades from Sunday's Week 1 matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Arizona Cardinals. The road-team Cardinals defeated the defending NFC champions 24-20. It may be too early for fans to point out any bright spots from the loss at Levi's Stadium, but Pro Football Focus had no problem doing so. Left tackle Trent Williams wasn't just the 49ers' best offensive player in the game; he was the highest-graded Niners player, period. In fact, Williams was the highest-graded player between both teams, edging out Cardinals defensive lineman Angelo Blackson's 85.0 overall grade. That's not bad for a player who missed all of last season with Washington. Williams earned an 88.6 overall grade, a
