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.

Kyle Juszczyk: Kyle Shanahan and Mike McDaniel's vision makes the 49ers dangerous

Kyle Juszczyk spent his first four NFL seasons with the Baltimore Ravens before signing with the San Francisco 49ers in 2017. The best fullback in the league re-signed with the team in March, ensuring he remains in the Bay Area through the 2025 season. It sounds like Juszczyk has no regrets about the decision to remain with head coach Kyle Shanahan. It's an offensive scheme that suits him and takes advantage of his unique versatility. Juszczyk may not have had the same opportunities with another organization. "I definitely have had the most fun in San Francisco because I am a little more featured," Juszczyk said this week on The Ross Tucker Football Podcast. "'Featured' is different as a fullback. I'm not the featured halfback or the No. 1 receiver. ...

Fred Warner: DeMeco Ryans to add 'his own touch' to the defense, 49ers are 'dialed in' and 'hungry'

Fred Warner has been paid, and the All-Pro linebacker is excited to get back to work. The San Francisco 49ers report to training camp next week and will hold their first practice on Wednesday, July 28. A historic number of injuries derailed the Niners' 2020 campaign, and the team finished with just six wins. In addition, the defense lost its coordinator, Robert Saleh, who left to become the head coach of the New York Jets. DeMeco Ryans, Warner's former position coach, replaces Saleh. While some wonder what this might mean in the immediate future for the defense's production, the star linebacker expects a smooth transition to Ryans. RELATED:
