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.

The San Francisco 49ers are in no danger of losing last season's breakout running back, Raheem Mostert, anytime soon. He doesn't become an unrestricted free agent until 2022. Fourth-year wideout Kendrick Bourne, however, is scheduled to become a free agent next year after signing a one-year tender in April. The 49ers have had discussions about contract extensions for both players, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic. "I know extensions for Mostert and Bourne have been discussed," Barrows wrote in this week's mailbag

Raheem Mostert requests a trade after months of 'unproductive talks'

San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert has requested a trade, according to a tweet by his agent, Brett Tessler. The agent noted the months of unproductive contract talks with the team as the basis for the request. Tessler expressed disappointment in the situation and for his client, who led all NFL running backs in yards-per-carry (5.6) last season and helped the 49ers reach Super Bowl LIV. After months of unproductive talks with the 49ers about fairly adjusting Raheem Mostert's contract (which paid him for special teams) we have requested a trade. Disappointing that it would come to this for a guy who

PFF names 49ers' running back battle as one to watch after Raheem Mostert requests trade

By David Bonilla

It's entirely likely that the San Francisco 49ers don't grant Raheem Mostert's trade request, and the running back ends up leading the team's ferocious rushing attack this season. He was a breakout surprise last year — and really, in the playoffs — and has earned an increased workload going forward. Mostert's $2.575 million base salary for 2020 is second to Tevin Coleman's $4.55 million among the Niners' backs, if you don't count fullback Kyle Juszczyk, of course. The team also has Jerick McKinnon, who head coach Kyle Shanahan was high on after signing him in 2018. Injury has knocked him out of each of the last two seasons, though, so no one really knows yet what the 49ers have there. Ben Linsey of Pro Football Focus
