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.

Rookie minicamp gets underway Friday for 49ers drafted players and undrafted free agents, but before those players take the field, they were hit with a number of questions from reporters during pre-camp media sessions on Thursday.

I'm not worried about 49ers' Trey Lance...and you shouldn't be either

By Marc Adams
May 20

San Francisco 49ers fans are fed up, and rightfully so, at the way the team's young quarterback Trey Lance is being treated in the media. For months now, there have been rumors and statements, mostly from national media types, designating Lance a bust, or suggesting the 49ers are concerned about him. As you'll recall, Lance only played ten quarters of football last season. Can ten quarters really tell us anything? Of course not. Especially when it comes to NFL rookies trying to play QB. It's baffling that this agenda is being pushed. But the ferocity at which it keeps coming is disturbing. Either the 49ers are allowing it because they believe it somehow gives them a competitive advantage, or they're pushing it to keep Jimmy Garopollo a hot commodity on the trade

Albert Breer on 49ers and Jimmy Garoppolo: 'I don't believe the plan right now is to keep him'

Jimmy Garoppolo won't be in attendance as the San Francisco 49ers kick off organized team activities this week. He is still recovering from the shoulder surgery he underwent on March 8 and won't be medically cleared to throw again until late next month or early July. There has been speculation that the 49ers might be willing to hold onto Garoppolo this season. The team's inability to trade their injured quarterback and unwillingness to release the player outright sparked that speculation. However, Albert Breer of The MMQB believes San Francisco still intends to offload Garoppolo before the start of the season. "San Francisco, for what it's worth, has had an open line of communication with Garoppolo's camp the last few months, and both sides are
