Silver: I don’t expect 49ers to make a run at Josh Norman

Apr 22, 2016 at 1:13 PM--


The Washington Redskins are making a strong push for former Carolina Panthers cornerback turned free agent Josh Norman. It has been reported that there is already a strong offer on the table by Washington and Norman is visiting with the team today.

Mike Silver of NFL Media stated that he does not expect the 49ers to make a run at signing Norman, despite their early interest in him and reportedly being one of the favorites to acquire Norman.


Washington flew Norman and his family in on a private jet and he arrived at Redskins Park Friday afternoon in a Secret Service-style convoy of black SUVs, provided by the Redskins.


While the 49ers have asked Norman to visit the team's headquarters in Santa Clara, per CSN Bay Area, there is currently no visit planned.

Norman became a free agent on Wednesday when the Panthers rescinded their franchise tag for the cornerback, immediately making him a free agent. Norman is expected to sign a deal in the range of $14 million to $15 million per year over 5 years, per Adam Schefter of ESPN. That's a lot of money to commit to one player, but the 49ers have $52.6 million in cap space according to the NFLPA.

Washington has almost $12.2 million in cap space available (per NFLPA), which means that they would likely need to make some transactions in order to fit Norman under their cap.

Trent Williams, Brandon Aiyuk expect 49ers to be better with Trey Lance at QB

The San Francisco 49ers expect things to be different with Trey Lance under center. The second-year quarterback takes the reins from Jimmy Garoppolo, who the team still hopes to trade. While Lance is inexperienced, many believe he has a high ceiling and can be the type of dual-threat player that gives opposing defenses headaches. "He's giving everybody confidence," tackle Trent Williams told NFL Network's Steve Mariucci and Michael Yam after Tuesday's practice. "He's giving everybody confidence in his ability and his poise, the way he commands the huddle. I say all the time that I'm impressed that he [doesn't] make the same mistake twice, and I think, from a young quarterback, that's all you can ask for because they're going to make mistakes, and that's part of the learning



How 49ers' Trey Lance reminds Ray-Ray McCloud of Josh Allen

Wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud entered the NFL in 2018 as a sixth-round pick with the Buffalo Bills. That was the same year the team made quarterback Josh Allen the No. 7 overall pick. McCloud spent two seasons with the Bills before bouncing between the Carolina Panthers, Bills, and Pittsburgh Steelers. The San Francisco 49ers signed McCloud this offseason, hoping to make the wideout their primary return man. He'll have to contribute on offense as well since head coach Kyle Shanahan values versatility. That means catching passes from second-year quarterback Trey Lance. McCloud spoke with reporters after Tuesday's practice as the 49ers prepare for their preseason opener against the Green Bay Packers. He was asked about his new quarterback and how the 22-year-old
