Sean Smith sweepstakes now a two-team race

Mar 9, 2016 at 2:27 PM--


95.7 The Game's John Middlekauff is reporting that the Kansas City Chiefs might be out of the race to bring back CB Sean Smith. Instead, it is likely now a two-team race between the San Francisco 49ers and the Oakland Raiders.


On Monday, it was reported by Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area that the 49ers had discussions about bringing Smith to San Francisco. Cornerback is one of the many positions of need for the 49ers.


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.

49ers' Kyle Shanahan says parting with Jimmy Garoppolo would be hard now that a rookie QB is on the way

When the question arose during 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch's predraft press conference of whether or not quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo would still be on the 49ers roster at the end of this week, Shanahan at first gave a very unusual and cryptic answer. Shanahan and Lynch were asked directly early in Monday's press conference if they could guarantee Garoppolo would remain with the team through Sunday, given the fact they intend to draft his eventual replacement with the third overall pick in this week's NFL Draft. Shanahan answered in the negative -- in his own, unique way. "I can't guarantee that anybody in the world will be alive Sunday, so I can't guarantee who will be on our roster on Sunday," Shanahan said. "So that goes for

A report surfaced yesterday stating that the New England Patriots were preparing a new contract for Jimmy Garoppolo — just in case the San Francisco 49ers decided to trade the veteran quarterback. Another report stated that the expectation around the league is that the Niners would try to move Garoppolo before or during the draft, which kicks off tonight. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero says that there are currently no plans to trade Garoppolo. However, he adds that multiple teams are expected to reach out to San Francisco today to inquire about the

Quarterbacks Mac Jones of Alabama and Justin Fields of Ohio State had each spent time as the betting favorite to be drafted at No. 3 overall by the San Francisco 49ers. Trey Lance of North Dakota State had never been — until today. The former Bison quarterback is now the favorite to be the Niners' quarterback of the future, per MyBookie. This follows increased chatter around the league that San Francisco is leaning toward drafting Lance rather than Jones or Fields. Over the weekend, Fields had reportedly been eliminated as a contender. MyBookie odds for the No. 3

Power rankings in May don't mean a lot, especially when you throw in figuring out how an unproven crop of rookies will impact a team's future success. "The NFL draft and the Power Rankings don't mix," wrote NFL.com contributor Dan Hanzus. That didn't stop him from trying. Hanzus released his latest power rankings, his first since a post-free-agency version in March, and has the San Francisco 49ers jumping up three spots to No. 9. The Niners' draft features the No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance of North Dakota State. The team also added two offensive linemen in Aaron Banks and Jaylon Moore, two running backs in Trey Sermon and Elijah
