49ers trade TE Vernon Davis to Denver

Nov 2, 2015 at 2:12 PM--


ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the San Francisco 49ers have traded TE Vernon Davis to the Denver Broncos. In return, they will swap 6th and 7th-round selections in 2016's NFL Draft and receive a 6th-round selection in 2017.

Davis was the sixth overall selection by the 49ers in the 2006 NFL Draft. He was the 49ers' longest tenured player. Now that honor falls to T Joe Staley. Davis, a two-time Pro Bowler (2009, 2013), had 441 receptions for 5,640 yards and 55 receiving touchdowns during his career with the 49ers.

Over the past two seasons, Davis has been ineffective with the 49ers. His name surfaced among some controversy recently when it was reported that he may have been the player that criticized 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick in a heated exchange with Joe Staley during a team meeting.

Davis was scheduled to become a free agent after this season and it was widely perceived that the 49ers would not try to re-sign him.

Jay Gruden reveals how much Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers were willing to give up for Kirk Cousins

By David Bonilla

Upon being hired as the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, Kyle Shanahan planned to be patient and build a roster in preparation for potentially inserting quarterback Kirk Cousins. Cousins was with Washington at the time, but it was a near-certainty that the relationship would eventually end. The 49ers coached rolled with placeholders until that time presented itself. The 49ers have admitted that they looked into potentially trading for Cousins. However, with the situation in Washington speeding toward an eventual divorce, it seemed to make more sense to wait and see what happened. There was also the obstacle of the strained relationship between the Shanahans and Washington. Cousins never ended up in Santa Clara with Shanahan. The free-agent quarterback



Could Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers face a second rebuild this off-season?

As the 2021 season reaches the halfway point, one thing is for sure: there is still a lot of football left. Even with the San Francisco 49ers sitting at 3-5, they still (thanks to an underperforming NFC) have a legitimate shot at getting to the playoffs this year. But it's not too early to start thinking about the future. If the season were to end now, head coach Kyle Shanahan would be coming off his fourth losing season in five years. The 49ers would also have over 30 players entering free agency, no first-round draft pick in 2022, and appear to be on the brink of a second rebuild under the current front office. Just for fun, let's begin thinking about what this off-season could look like for the 49ers. How this season wraps up will strongly determine the approach this



'This was never about this year': Rapoport says 49ers should not regret drafting Trey Lance over Mac Jones

By David Bonilla

Mac Jones is having an impressive rookie year. His New England Patriots have won four in a row and sit at 6-4. The rookie quarterback completed 82.6 percent of his passes and threw three touchdowns in a 45-7 rout of the Cleveland Browns over the weekend. Meanwhile, in Santa Clara, rookie Trey Lance, selected 12 spots ahead of Jones at No. 3 overall, hasn't received too many opportunities with the San Francisco 49ers. Of course, that was always the plan. Lance was drafted to eventually replace starter Jimmy Garoppolo, but use his rookie season to learn from the veteran quarterback and his coaches. Lance, after all, had limited experience at the collegiate level. Shanahan fell in love with Lance's potential. That's what made the 49ers trade to move up to select the
