Baalke to Anthony Davis: Trade accusations are “false reporting”

Apr 11, 2016 at 10:20 AM--


San Francisco general manager Trent Baalke sent former 49ers OT Anthony Davis a text this morning regarding the report from earlier stating that the team was looking to trade both he and S Antoine Bethea. Baalke told Davis that the accusations are "false reporting," per Davis himself.


The report from this morning originated as part of a larger article by Peter King of Sports Illustrated. In the report, one front office source stated, "San Francisco will not trade up from seven. Trent Baalke loves his picks too much and has too many needs to give them away." Another stated, "[The 49ers] want to trade Anthony Davis and Antoine Bethea."

On April 1, Davis sent out a tweet that he would be filing for reinstatement later this year, but took a bit of a shot at Baalke while doing so.


That left many to question whether he truly wanted to play for the 49ers in 2016 or if he was looking to be dealt to another team.

Davis, who is 26, retired after dealing with a number of injuries during the 2014 season, including a concussion. He stated that he wanted to get healthy before returning to the NFL. His injuries limited him to only seven games in 2014. Davis, who is very vocal on Twitter, has repeatedly confirmed that he planned to return to the 49ers, who continue to hold his rights.

Last season, his absence left the 49ers with free agent acquisition Erik Pears starting at right tackle, contributing to making the offensive line one of the worst in the NFL. Davis was the 11th overall selection by the 49ers out of Rutgers in the 2010 NFL Draft. He has played his entire career with the 49ers and started every game prior to 2014.

And here you thought the Aaron Rodgers-to-San Francisco 49ers chatter was over. I'll preface this by saying what Jason Smith of FOX Sports Radio said about the 49ers and the Green Bay Packers quarterback might be the most ridiculous thing you read today. Now that you have been sufficiently warned, brace yourself, and proceed, if you wish. Smith believes San Francisco remains interested in Rodgers, and drafting Trey Lance of North Dakota State with the No. 3 overall pick last week hasn't changed that. Now, any rational reporter or fan clearly understands that the Niners heard about the disgruntled Green Bay quarterback and did their due diligence, as head coach Kyle

The San Francisco 49ers were reportedly interested in signing Andy Dalton this offseason. The former Cincinnati Bengals and Dallas Cowboys quarterback ended up signing a one-year, $10 million deal with the Chicago Bears, where he will help mentor rookie Justin Fields. That was too pricey for the 49ers, apparently, According to analyst Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network, head coach Kyle Shanahan really wanted to add Dalton and wasn't happy when the veteran quarterback slipped through the 49ers' fingertips. "They wanted to sign Andy Dalton in free agency as their veteran quarterback and then trade (Jimmy) Garoppolo and draft Lance,"

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch was at his daughter's school tennis match when his phone rang. The Miami Dolphins were still mulling over the trade offer he had presented on March 4 for the No. 3 overall pick. San Francisco was willing to surrender its first-round picks in 2022 and 2023 to swap spots in 2021. It had been weeks since Lynch presented the offer. The Dolphins were very interested but needed a little more motivation. "We weren't going to officially do the deal with that," Miami general manager Chris Grier told Peter King of NBC Sports, "because we knew the importance of that third pick." The Dolphins
