Chiefs making a strong push to retain Sean Smith

Mar 9, 2016 at 5:59 PM--


Were reports of the Kansas City Chiefs being out of the hunt for CB Sean Smith a bit premature? Terez Paylor, a team beat writer for the Kansas City Star, believes so. He is hearing that the Chiefs are making a strong push to retain Smith, who is an unrestricted free agent.


Earlier today, 95.7 The Game's John Middlekauff, reported that the Chiefs might be out of the race and that it was likely a two-team battle 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.

Nick Bosa: 49ers not too shaken up about loss to Cardinals, will 'come back strong'

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers weren't about making excuses following their 24-20 Week 1 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. There could have been plenty — being rusty from no preseason, injuries, the lack of a normal offseason. All NFL teams across the league had to deal with at least two of those, though. The situation wasn't unique to the 49ers. You'll probably hear a lot more this week about the potential for a Super Bowl hangover. 49ers players aren't using that as an excuse either. While the goal is to get back to and win the big game this season, players have continually said they are taking things one week at a time and remain focused on each opponent ahead of them. "I mean, I hope we're not thinking about last year. We just played a

49ers DB Jimmie Ward not surprised Frank Gore still going strong at age 37

There's probably a number of people who never expected to see New York Jets running back Frank Gore still going strong in the NFL at age 37, but his former teammate Jimmie Ward isn't one of them. Ward is one of three current 49ers players who were on the roster when Gore was last with the team in 2014, with long snapper Kyle Nelson and cornerback Dontae Johnson being the others. Gore was a model of consistency back then, having rushed for over 1,000 yards in eight of nine seasons going back to 2006, and had just wrapped up a season of 1,106 yards and four touchdowns when he and the 49ers didn't come to terms on a new contract after the 2014 season. Gore will face off against his former team when the 49ers face the Jets on Sunday, the second time he's done so

49ers-Cardinals: Deebo Samuel misses another practice, making his availability for Sunday unlikely

By David Bonilla
Sep 11, 2020

The San Francisco 49ers got one wide receiver back this week, as rookie Brandon Aiyuk returned to practice. It doesn't look like they will be as lucky with another injured wideout. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch were hopeful to have second-year receiver Deebo Samuel on the field with Aiyuk on Sunday. That now seems unlikely after Samuel wasn't out on the practice field with his teammates on Friday. He has not practiced with the team since suffering a Jones fracture in June. No Deebo
