49ers to match Lee’s offer

Mar 8, 2007 at 7:02 AM--


From Maiocco's blog:
the 49ers are not going to let punter Andy Lee get away. The 49ers can thank the Steelers for doing the 49ers' work for them. The Steelers negotiated an unimpressive contract for Lee, who is a restricted free agent. As soon as the 49ers saw the offer sheet - six years, $7.1 million with $1.66 million to sign - they decided to match the deal to retain Lee. They will probably make it official as early as Thursday.

"Andy had a nice year for us. We like the development he had," 49ers vice president of player personnel Scot McCloughan said. "We look forward to having that type of player around. We identified guys when we got here and we see him as one of our guys."

Lee is planning to get married this weekend, so he'll have some nice spending money for his honeymoon.

There's a lot to unpack from Saturday night's memorable 13-10 win for the San Francisco 49ers over the Green Bay Packers, but some of the biggest news to surface since that game came to an end involves the legendary quarterback the 49ers faced in their latest playoff victory—and the one they could face next week. Keep in mind there are still a lot of unknowns here, including (as of Sunday morning) whether or not the 49ers will even get this opportunity when they battle in the NFC Championship next Sunday (6:40 p.m. ET/3:40 p.m. PT, FOX). But based on what Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Saturday night to go with what's been reported about Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady over the past 24 hours, it's not incorrect to say the 49ers could conceivably be the team to

The San Francisco 49ers announced that the team has activated running back Trey Sermon off of injured reserve ahead of Sunday's Wild-Card playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys. He landed on injured reserve on December 4 due to an ankle injury. The 49ers opened Sermon's practice window on December 21, 2020. Tuesday was the deadline to activate Sermon, 22, off of injured reserve, or he would have been done for the season. The 49ers made Sermon (6-0, 215) a third-round selection out of Ohio State in last year's draft. He has carried the football 41 times for 167 yards with a rushing touchdown while adding three receptions for 26 yards through nine game appearances and two starts this season.
