Adalius Thomas visiting New England first?

Mar 2, 2007 at 3:11 PM--


Matt Maiocco of the Press Democrat has reported that the only two free agents to visit the 49ers facility in Santa Clara today were cornerback Nate Clements and safety Michael Lewis.

It was reported yesterday that linebacker Adalius Thomas was supposed to visit the 49ers today. John Clayton of ESPN said that Thomas' visit to Santa Clara "hit a snag." That snag may be the New England Patriots as reports from numerous sources are saying that Thomas is headed there first. New England and San Francisco are considered to be the top two suitors for Thomas' services.

"Those are the possibilities," said agent Bus Cook, who was waiting for Thomas to undergo a brief out-patient surgery on Friday before talking to Thomas about possible visits. The surgery, whatever it may be, is reported to be very minor.

Word from Yahoo! Sports is that San Francisco could offer Thomas in excess of $20 million in guaranteed money.

Bennett and Banta-Cain in St. Louis

Maiocco also states that wide receiver Drew Bennett is in St. Louis today visiting the Rams. Linebacker Tully Banta-Cain is also in St. Louis.

John Lynch: 49ers learning from draft hits and misses; Aaron Banks, Ambry Thomas will contribute

A lot is riding on the selection of Trey Lance. The future of the San Francisco 49ers — and likely head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch — depends on the rookie quarterback developing into an impact player. The NFL Draft has seemingly been a crapshoot for the Niners. For every Nick Bosa, there is a Solomon Thomas or Reuben Foster. There have been George Kittles and Fred Warners. However, selections like Dante Pettis severely impact evaluations of recent draft classes. The jury is still out on last year's first-rounders, Javon Kinlaw and Brandon Aiyuk. The latter's lack of involvement this season has been baffling. The 49ers have hit



49ers rookie Trey Lance to make first NFL start, says Kyle Shanahan

The San Francisco 49ers hoped quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo would be able to take part in today's practice and test whether his right leg was strong enough to play on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. Garoppolo didn't, and he has now missed an entire week's worth of practice. After practice, head coach Kyle Shanahan said the 49ers are ruling Garoppolo "out" for the Week 5 matchup and that rookie Trey Lance would start in the veteran's place. With Garoppolo sidelined, Lance has received the majority of the practice reps this week. "The more reps you get, the better you're going to get," general manager John Lynch said this morning on KNBR. "He does things exceptionally well. I think he's taken to our offense well. With every rep, he's going to get



Kyle Shanahan, Trey Lance 'excited' about 49ers rookie's first start

The San Francisco 49ers have ruled out quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. That means head coach Kyle Shanahan will rely on rookie Trey Lance to knock off the division leaders in his first NFL start. It isn't easy to know what to expect from the rookie. Last weekend was his first extended playing time. While things started somewhat shaky for the 21-year-old quarterback, he did appear to get more comfortable as the game progressed. Lance finished the game 9-of-18 passing for 157 yards and two touchdowns. He also had 41 rushing yards on seven carries. What does Shanahan expect from his rookie on Sunday? "Even quarterbacks who have played a thousand games before, you have quarterbacks who are great



'I know he can play': Carson Wentz excited about 49ers rookie Trey Lance's first start

Trey Lance was 17-0 as a starter at North Dakota State. Before him, Easton Stick was 49-3 as a starter. Before either of them, Carson Wentz impressed pro scouts during his 20-3 collegiate run. Five years after Wentz's first NFL start, Lance is getting his chance. A calf injury has sidelined Jimmy Garoppolo, so the No. 3 overall pick will start Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. One former Bison quarterback is excited for the other. "I definitely did get to know Trey a little bit over the last couple of years, and even going into the pre-draft process," Wentz told Rich Eisen today. "Great kid. Great kid. [He's] got a great head on his shoulders, and I love his
