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.

The San Francisco 49ers picked up about $11 million in salary-cap space by restructuring the contract of defensive end Dee Ford. It became evident that the veteran defender wasn't going to be medically cleared by this week's deadline, at which point much of his salary becomes guaranteed. Ford was limited to just one game last season as he dealt with neck and back injuries. General manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke virtually with reporters on Monday for nearly 40 minutes. During the conversation, the former provided an update on Ford's recovery without going into too much detail. "Dee's doing well," Lynch said. "With that type of injury, you don't

The San Francisco 49ers announced that the team has signed former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nate Sudfeld to a one-year deal. The Washington Football Team made Sudfeld a sixth-round selection out of Indiana in 2016. He signed with the Eagles practice squad before the 2017 season. Sudfeld completed five-of-12 attempts (41.7 percent) for 32 yards and an interception in one game with the Eagles last season, per NFL.com. San Francisco now has four quarterbacks on its roster. They are Jimmy Garoppolo, Josh Rosen, Josh Johnson, and now Sudfeld. The team is expected to draft a quarterback with the No. 3 overall pick, which they acquired on March 26 via a trade with the Miami Dolphins. Sudfeld, 27, has completed 67.6 percent of his passes for 188 yards

Fowler: 49ers' draft moves could change plans for Jimmy Garoppolo

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is set to earn about $25 million this year. Whomever they pick at No. 3 overall will have a cap hit of about $6.2 million in 2021, per OverTheCap.com. If the gap between the two players isn't seen as great—and a lot of that may depend on actually getting the rookie into the building and seeing how fast he can progress—that could accelerate the plan to part ways with Garoppolo. Maybe something happens before the draft. Maybe it happens during, after, or even next year. For now, the 49ers sound comfortable keeping Garoppolo around for another season while their rookie quarterback sits and learns. It's a prudent plan considering the roster is built to compete for a championship right now. On Sunday, ESPN's
