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.

A dark-horse trade candidate for the 49ers ahead of the 2022 season

For much of the offseason, many 49ers fans have believed the team will move on from quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, either via trade or release. However, three months after the beginning of the 2022 league year, the veteran signal-caller still remains a member of the franchise as he rehabs from shoulder surgery. Additionally, at the linebacker position, many have clamored for the 49ers to trade Dre Greenlaw, given that he's a free agent in 2023 and currently carries a cap hit of $2.54 million after signing his tender as a restricted free agent. Fellow linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair broke out last season while Greenlaw missed 14 games due to multiple injuries, creating a formidable duo at the position with former All-Pro Fred Warner. However, there's a dark horse trade



Fowler: 49ers' Deebo Samuel hasn't rescinded trade request

Deebo Samuel attended the San Francisco 49ers' mandatory minicamp earlier this month but did not participate in the practices. General manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan continued to share their optimism that the 49ers will sign Samuel to a contract extension despite the wide receiver requesting a trade earlier in the offseason. Samuel's willingness to report to the mandatory minicamp gave the impression that there is hope that the rift between player and team can be resolved and that a contract extension might come before training camp. However, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that nothing has changed regarding Samuel's stance. "I'm told status quo is really when he reported to minicamp; that's the last piece of news that we have here," Fowler said

With the quarterback market essentially settled, and a resolution seeming imminent, be it a trade or a release, what teams are currently realistic trade



CBS analyst calls 49ers' situations with Deebo Samuel and Jimmy Garoppolo 'messy' and 'awkward'

In May, former offensive lineman turned broadcaster and analyst Ryan Harris made headlines stating that sources inside the San Francisco 49ers shared doubts about second-year quarterback Trey Lance. He also said that some expected Jimmy Garoppolo to start come Week 1. Harris rejoined CBS Sports HQ to share his thoughts on two big 49ers-related offseason storylines—Deebo Samuel and Garoppolo. Earlier this offseason, Samuel requested to be traded after watching several of his wide receiver peers cash in while the 49ers star waited for his own contract extension. San Francisco had hoped to trade Garoppolo in March. However, the quarterback
