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.

The San Francisco 49ers have seemingly eliminated Justin Fields of Ohio State from contention when it comes to the No. 3 overall pick, if a Sunday-night report from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network is to be believed. The NFL insider says head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have narrowed their choices down to Mac Jones of Alabama and Trey Lance of North Dakota State. Shanahan reportedly wants Jones while the 49ers' personnel department has been pushing for Lance. RELATED:



Report: Patriots working on a new contract for 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo -- just in case

Better safe than sorry, right? Dale Arnold of NESN reports that the New England Patriots are working on a new contract for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Yes, Garoppolo is still with the San Francisco 49ers, and this news doesn't necessarily mean that a deal is imminent. If accurate, it just means that the Patriots are getting everything in order -- just in case a trade happens. It could also mean that the Patriots believe the 49ers are likely to seek a trade. What I've been told, by a reliable source —- @Patriots are working on a new



QB Mac Jones says he "secretly" wanted to get picked by Patriots

After weeks of reports saying it would likely happen, quarterback Mac Jones won't be joining the San Francisco 49ers. And that seems to be just fine by him. Jones was mentioned by a number of reporters as the likely choice of the 49ers ever since they traded up from pick 12 to pick 3 in March. But when the time came for the 49ers to make their selection at pick 3 Thursday night, Jones was left at the altar while the 49ers decided to hitch their wagon to Trey Lance. Jones fell to pick 15 in the first round, where he was scooped up by the New England Patriots. Not long after the Patriots made him their selection, Jones told reporters that New England was where he was hoping to wind up from the beginning. "At the end of the day, you just kind of want to



49ers' Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch talk Jimmy Garoppolo, Richard Sherman, and Nick Mullens

Jimmy Garoppolo's days with the San Francisco 49ers may be numbered. He will likely remain with the team through the 2021 season. However, after drafting Trey Lance of North Dakota State with the No. 3 overall pick, it is clear that a change is on the horizon for the Niners. While most felt that might create an awkward situation in the quarterback room, Garoppolo has made the best of it. In fact, Garoppolo was the first 49ers player who reached out to Lance after the incoming rookie heard his name called in Cleveland, Ohio. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch spoke to the media on Friday night after the team was done making its Day 2 picks. They were asked if they spoke with Garoppolo after selecting Lance. Obviously, the quarterback knew the
