James Laurinaitis’ visits include 49ers, six other teams

Mar 12, 2016 at 6:59 AM--


LB James Laurinaitis' father, better known as WWE Hall of Famer "Road Warrior Animal," posted a tweet last night about his son. The post mentioned seven teams that have interest enough in Laurinaitis to plan a visit. Although, at the time of the post by Patrick Tulini, it was unknown if those seven teams were already visited on planned visits.

The teams on the list include the Atlanta Falcons, New Orleans Saints, Chicago Bears, Washington Redskins, New England Patriots, San Francisco 49ers, and New York Giants. One source has said that the majority of these visits have already occurred, with teams like the Giants still being planned visits. His visits with the Falcons and Saints occurred earlier in the week.


Laurinaitis, the 35th pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, was recently released by the Los Angeles Rams along with DE Chris Long and TE Jared Cook.

Laurinaitis' release, which was a surprise to Laurinaitis, saved the Rams $5.78 million in salary cap space. He never missed a start in seven seasons with the Rams while in St. Louis, playing in 112 games, making 853 tackles, 16.5 sacks, and 10 interceptions.

The Rams filed to relocate from St. Louis back to Los Angeles following the 2015 season. The move was approved at the NFL owners meeting in January.

Update:

Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area confirms that, according to a source, Laurinaitis has yet to visit with the 49ers.

According to Pro Football Talk, the NFL has informed teams that the 2023 salary cap will be set at $224.8 million, a $16.6 million increase from the 2022 season's salary cap. "That's up from $208.2 million for the current season and reflects the uptick in revenue that the league will enjoy from new broadcasting deals that kick in during the 2023 season," wrote Josh Alper. "It also shows that the league has rebounded well from the drop to a $182.5 million salary cap in 2021 due to the impact of COVID on attendance and other revenues." OverTheCap.com already lists the San Francisco 49ers owning $16.4 million of cap space under the new $224.8

49ers mailbag: Will 49ers sign a big-name QB? Who will Ryans take to Houston? Who will replace Ryans? Will Garoppolo return?

There's not much going on with the San Francisco 49ers. Not unless you count these small bits of news: Brock Purdy has a UCL tear and will likely need surgery. If they can repair the tendon, he'll need six months of recovery time (which is August). If they have to replace it (Tommy John surgery), it will be decidedly longer. Trey Lance says he is three to four weeks from being cleared to practice, and that he should be 100% by OTAs (organized team activities). Trent Williams was walking with a crutch on Tuesday (locker cleanout day) and had a walking boot on. But he said it's nothing. DeMeco Ryans was hired to be the next head coach of the Houston Texans. Tom Brady announced his retirement Wednesday morning, so those hoping he
