Email from Geoff Hobson:
Clements is gone to san fran for $23 M to sign - a deal the Bengals could have done if they cut the few guys who do play defense.

If this is true, the 49ers will likely make the announcement later today.

John Clayton of ESPN is now reporting that the 49ers are close to signing Clements and could get the deal done today.

Update [11:50pm]:

A representative of Clement said "that there is no deal in place with the 49ers, or any team for that matter, and that no deal is imminent. His office called the reports 'false and very untrue.'"

Update [10:20am]:

With the number of people now linking to this article, we have decided to mark this article as a rumor for now as nothing has been made official by the press or by the San Francisco 49ers yet. The only source so far is an email from Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com.

Matt Maiocco stated this morning that "The 49ers will not sign anyone until he has passed a physical." However, he has made no comments yet on Clements or Adalius Thomas other than "The 49ers have huge interest in both LB Adalius Thomas and CB Nate Clements."

Interest in Tully Banta-Cain

Maiocco also said the following in his blog this morning:

The 49ers have talked to Tully Banta-Cain's agent, Jim Sims, but no visit has been scheduled. Banta-Cain is traveling today to visit with a team that Sims declined to identify.

"According to a team source, the Steelers and 49ers trade talks are real," Strackbein wrote. "While nothing is imminent, they 'would be surprised if it didn't happen.' But it all comes down to compensation, and Pittsburgh isn't willing to budge much on price." While it seems unlikely that the 49ers would part ways with Aiyuk for anything less than a first-round draft

By David Bonilla

Ian Rapoport didn't offer much of an update on the ongoing contract negotiations between the San Francisco 49ers and their standout wide receiver, Brandon Aiyuk. However, the NFL insider emphasized one thing: The team is not entertaining trade discussions at this juncture. Reacting to Aiyuk's decision to unfollow the 49ers on Instagram, Rapoport couldn't help but chuckle at the latest development.
