Thomas in Santa Clara but Pats make a push; 49ers contact Clements

Mar 2, 2007 at 7:28 AM--


According to Adam Schefter of NFL Network, who was on WEEI radio in Boston, the New England Patriots have entered the race for Adalius Thomas and are trying to make a strong push for the free agent linebacker. However, ESPN reported yesterday that Adalius Thomas is in San Francisco right now and is looking to reunite former Baltimore defensive coordinator and current 49ers head coach Mike Nolan.

While a deal is believed to have been agreed to, it does not become official until that deal is signed.

As reported yesterday, the 49ers are also in communications with free agent cornerback Nate Clements, as are the Browns and Titans.

While the 49ers have been reported as one of the teams interested in wide receiver Drew Bennett, it is believed that the Minnesota Vikings are making a stronger push for him. The 49ers released their number one receiver, Antonio Bryant, yesterday.

The San Francisco 49ers loved George Kittle as the Iowa tight end entered the 2017 NFL Draft. Did they know he would eventually become one of the best to play the position? Probably not. Did they view him as a fifth-round pick? No. If NFL teams redid that draft, there is no way Kittle would last beyond the first few selections. Back in 2017, San Francisco wasn't even sure he would make it to the fifth round. The team had a higher grade on Kittle but gambled by waiting to select the player who would eventually become one of the most entertaining young stars in the game. "I remember scouting George Kittle at Iowa when I was with the Broncos, at the time," 49ers VP of player personnel Adam Peters

No salary cap drop for 49ers, NFL teams in 2020, but next four years could be impacted

A report on Thursday stated that NFL owners were pushing to lower the salary cap for 2020 and 2021. The move was being proposed to offset any potential losses that may come from the absence of fans within stadiums. Instead, the NFL Players Association (NFLPA) has been pushing for the impact of any revenue losses to be spread through 2030. With many NFL rosters pretty set, a cap reduction this late in the offseason would have significantly impacted some teams. It doesn't sound like that will happen. Tom Pelissero of NFL Network is reporting that there will be no change to the 2020 salary-cap figure of $198.2 million. The impact of lost revenue will instead be spread out
