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.

'I know we're going to push each other': 49ers rookie Trey Lance excited to learn from Jimmy Garoppolo

Awkward. That's a word that can be used to describe the quarterback situation in San Francisco. The 49ers plan to enter the 2021 season with Jimmy Garoppolo as their starter. However, they surrendered a haul of future draft picks to move up to the No. 3 spot this year. The team selected quarterback Trey Lance of North Dakota State on Thursday night. He will eventually replace Garoppolo. Yes, that could be an awkward situation in the quarterback room. Lance doesn't see it as awkward, though. He sees it as an opportunity. Sitting behind Garoppolo for a season is an opportunity for the young quarterback to learn from a veteran who is very comfortable with the offense. It's an opportunity to study behind a quarterback who is 26-9 as a starter in the
