Update: Clements deal could be done today; Lewis visits team

Mar 2, 2007 at 12:17 PM--


Update: Cornerback Nate Clements and safety Michael Lewis (Eagles) are currently at the 49ers facility in Santa Clara according to Matt Maiocco of the Press Democrat. Neither Lewis nor Clements have signed a contract or taken a physical. Maiocco also states that "Whenever a player comes to your team offices on the first day of free agency, that team is generally determined to not let that player leave without a signed contract."

Adam Schefter just confirmed that Nate Clements and the 49ers have agreed to terms. This ran on the NFL networks ticker on the bottom of the screen.

John Clayton of ESPN previously reported that the 49ers were close to signing free agent cornerback Nate Clements. However, 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.'" There seems to be some conflicting reports here.

Earlier today, Thomas Sorrell, a writer for RealFootball365, broke the story with this email from Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com:

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.

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.

Anthony Adams will no longer be with the 49ers

From Matt Maiocco's ongoing blog updates:

Anthony Adams pulled up to the front of the 49ers' team offices to grab some of his belongings. The 49ers will not make an effort to re-sign him because they don't see him being a fit for the 3-4 defensive scheme that the club wants to implement.

Newberry to have a physical with Raiders

Maiocco also had this to say in the same blog from this morning:

We know Jeremy Newberry isn't coming back to the 49ers. He is scheduled to have a physical with the Raiders on Monday. Depending on how things go there, he may or may not visit the Buccaneers on Tuesday.

49ers' Nick Bosa on zero-sack performance: "I did a good part in the win today"

By Rohan Chakravarthi

The San Francisco 49ers defeated the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC Divisional round to advance to the NFC Championship Game next weekend, winning in a 19-12 bout after holding their opponent scoreless over the last 11 minutes of the game. However, their win came without a sack from their star defensive end Nick Bosa, who has now gone without a sack in two consecutive weeks for the first time since Weeks 16 and 17 of the 2021 season, playoffs included. Bosa had only gone three games without a sack in the regular season, but has now missed a sack in two consecutive games, including a zero-pressure game against the Seahawks last weekend. But, zero sacks don't mean zero impact, and Bosa believed that his performance was a good one following San Francisco's



Update: DeMeco Ryans not interviewing for head coaching jobs on 49ers-Cowboys game day, per source

On Saturday, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported that San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans would interview with the Arizona Cardinals and Indianapolis Colts ahead of the team's Divisional Round playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys. "He's going to do those interviews prior to kickoff tomorrow against the Cowboys," Fowler said on-air. "It's a crazy 72-hour window for Ryans. People around the league believe he has traction in Houston. He played six years there, was a great player, played alongside J.J. Watt and others, well respected. ... Ryans will be firmly in the mix on multiple

Give yourself a hand. A standing ovation even. You've survived Wild Card weekend with great poise and determination, and you're now focused and ready for the Divisional Round of the NFL Postseason. Give yourself a high-five. Better yet, give someone else a high-five. Even if you don't know them, walk over and give someone a high-five. Don't tell them why you're doing it. Just do it. As the San Francisco 49ers prepare to host the Dallas Cowboys (Boooooo!), we have answered many of your 49ers' questions for our latest mailbag. Every time you hear or read the words "Dallas" or "Cowboys" this week, let out a loud, "Boooooo!" Not the weak pumping-in-crowd noise like the Rams do, but one that shows you mean business and is anchored in your hatred for the Cowboys (Boooooo!). See?



Kyle Shanahan sees improved Cowboys team as 49ers prepare for playoff rematch

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing to host the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. It's a rematch of last season's playoff meeting, which resulted in a 23-17 49ers victory. Some have argued that the Cowboys are very similar to that team that lost in the Wild Card Round last year and that the 49ers are improved, making San Francisco the clear favorite. Head coach Kyle Shanahan isn't listening to any of that. Instead, he was impressed by what he saw from Dallas during Monday night's rout of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "They're a good team," Shanahan told reporters before Wednesday's practice. "They've been that all year. They probably looked their best on Monday night, which you expected them to, just with the atmosphere and everything. They've been good for a while, and just watching
