49ers have discussed Chiefs CB Sean Smith and possible trade for De’Anthony Thomas

Mar 7, 2016 at 11:01 AM--


Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports that the San Francisco 49ers have discussed Kansas City Chiefs CB Sean Smith, who will become a free agent on Wednesday. It is not the first time that the 49ers have been interested in Smith and he would definitely fill a position of need. It is unknown how serious those discussions have been, especially given Smith's suspension last season.


Smith, a 2009 draft selection out of Utah by the Miami Dolphins, has had 353 tackles, 10 interceptions, three forced fumbles, 81 passes deflected, and a defensive touchdown over his career.

In March of 2013, Smith signed a three-year, $18 million deal with $12 million guaranteed to play for the Kansas City Chiefs. He was suspended for the first three games of the 2015 season after pleading guilty to a DUI charge last April. Rotoworld.com has Smith ranked as their fourth best cornerback available via free agency.


Earlier today, 95.7 The Game host John Middlekauff stated that the 49ers were discussing a possible trade for another Chief, wide receiver and return specialist De'Anthony Thomas.


"Thomas could play running back or line up in the slot, offering a similar skill set to current receiver Bruce Ellington. But even if those abilities overlap, having players with speed to rotate through the up-tempo attack could help keep each player fresh," says Chris Biderman of Niners Wire.

Seahawks OG J.R. Sweezy also appears to be on the 49ers' radar according to NFL Network's Rand Getlin. The Niner Faithful may remember him as the player with the controversial block on Ian William that broke his ankle in 2013. Of course, there is a long list of teams showing interest.

Bleacher Report predicts this trade involving 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo

Maurice Moton, a featured columnist and fantasy football analyst for Bleacher Report, recently made nine "bold predictions" for the 2021 season. Among them was trying to predict the fate of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Garoppolo will enter training camp atop the 49ers' quarterback depth chart. However, behind him is the No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance. Lance is the future. Garoppolo is the present. At least, that is the impression that the team's decision-makers have been presenting all offseason. The plan is to have Garoppolo start Week 1 against the Detroit Lions and potentially beyond, allowing Lance all the time he needs to



Beat writer wonders if offseason additions could tempt 49ers to trade Raheem Mostert

The San Francisco 49ers should feel good about their running back depth. On their latest 49ers Talk podcast, Matt Maiocco and Laura Britt of NBC Sports Bay Area took a look at the team's offseason veteran additions and departures. When they landed at the running back group, Maiocco wondered if there is too much depth. Obviously, there is the argument that there is no such thing as too much depth. For example, the 49ers have to feel better about their quarterback position with high-potential rookie Trey Lance likely to open the season as Jimmy Garoppolo's backup. That's a better backup situation than the team had in recent years. At running back, San Francisco didn't just add veteran Wayne Gallman, who may be a severely underrated signing.

The NFL reportedly informed teams that it would not extend the 18-week season to accommodate a COVID-19 outbreak among unvaccinated players. Last year, there were multiple postponements as the league navigated through the bizarre season amid a pandemic. There will be no rescheduling of games in 2021. The league hopes players will take it upon themselves to get vaccinated and protect themselves and their families as training camps get set to kick off. Should there be an outbreak, the impacted club or clubs could be forced to forfeit, accruing a defeat, and not being paid for the lost game. A team with an outbreak could also be responsible for
