Stallworth mentions Patriots, Niners and Dolphins

Feb 15, 2007 at 5:28 AM--


According to Rotoworld.com and philly.com, San Francisco is one of three teams that Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Donté Stallworth would like to go to should he be unable to reach a contract agreement with the Eagles.

Stallworth went to the Eagles in a trade last August for linebacker Mark Simoneau and a fourth-round draft pick that will become a third if the Eagles sign him before free agency starts on March 2. While the Eagles would like to have him back, they feel that his asking price may be too high.

When asked where he would like to go if he were unable to return to the Eagles, who remain his number one choice, Stallworth said this:

"There's New England, obviously being able to play in an organization like that, similar to the Eagles, who have definitely won a lot of games in the past. San Francisco, young and upcoming team, has a good young quarterback [Alex Smith], and Norv Turner is still the offensive coordinator there, that helps... And Miami, the GM there was a guy who drafted me in New Orleans, Randy Mueller, and we've always had a real good relationship."

The mention of Norv Turner is another example of how the offensive coordinator's presence in San Francisco is huge for the team.

Stallworth, a 6'0" 196 lb player with five years of experience, had 38 receptions for 725 yards and five touchdowns last season. 2005 was his best career year with 70 receptions for 945 yards and seven touchdowns with the Saints.

Niners Go from Camelot to Cursed

By Jeff Kaplan
Mar 3

Come, children. Come gather 'round as I regale you with tales of this old man's youth. I know these stories will seem absurd, proof of my feeble and failing mind. But I'm telling you, they really happened. Things were different then, kids. Our telephones were wired to the walls of our houses. Our televisions picked up only three channels. And perhaps the most incredible of all: the Niners won. At the biggest moments, the Niners won. I see the looks you're giving me. I know you think I've finally lost it. But I'm telling you, it's really true! A century ago, when I was a lad, the Niners went to five Super Bowls and won them all. Three of those were total routs; they played their best on the biggest stage—really, try to

Speculation ends as 49ers hire a defensive coordinator...and an assistant head coach

By Marc Adams

The San Francisco 49ers have been searching for a defensive coordinator to replace Steve Wilks, who they cut ties with after the loss in Super Bowl LVIII. And apparently, the team has also been searching for an assistant head coach after losing Anthony Lynn to the Washington Commanders. ESPN's Adam Schefter and Jeremy Fowler both reported early Saturday morning that the 49ers are promoting their defensive passing game specialist, Nick Sorensen, as their new defensive coordinator, and are hiring former Los Angeles Chargers head coach Brandon Staley for a "prominent staff role, possibly assistant head coach." Coincidentally, Staley, who was also in consideration for the defensive coordinator job, will be the second former head coach of the Chargers to join Kyle Shanahan's staff

ESPN analyst Mel Kiper unveiled his latest mock draft, projecting the 32 selections of the first round. For the first time since 2021, the San Francisco 49ers own a first-round selection and could use the pick to bolster the offensive line or the defensive backfield. However, Kiper has the team going in another direction. He proposes adding a pass rusher to complement defensive end Nick Bosa on the opposite side. Kiper's pick for San Francisco is Chop Robinson of Penn State. Kiper wrote, "It has to be offensive line or edge rusher for the 49ers, right? They need to find
