49ers Lions talking trades ?

Apr 25, 2007 at 5:40 AM--


Adam Schefter of NFL.com is reporting the 49ers and Cleveland Browns have both contacted the Detroit Lions about trading for DE/DT Cory Redding

From NFL.com
Within the past 10 days, the San Francisco 49ers and Cleveland Browns have made overtures to the Lions to see what it would take to sign Redding, who has been absent from Detroit's minicamps.

However, the Lions maintain that Redding is untradeable -- the same term one GM used to describe Johnson. But it's not going to dissuade other teams from continuing to try.

As the draft creeps closer, the Lions could find themselves fielding more phone calls about the player who is unhappy about having the $6.2 million franchise tag slapped on him.


And ProFootballTalk.com is reporting that the 49ers have not contacted the Detroit Lions regarding a possible trade up for the no.2 spot in this Saturday's draft

A league source tells us that, despite published reports suggesting that the 49ers are the latest team to talk to the Lions about a trade for the No. 2 overall pick, there are and have been no discussions between these two teams.

Barnwell notes the Browns' desperation to find help at the safety position, and the 49ers could use someone to help replace injured tight end Jordan Reed, who suffered an MCL sprain on September 27. "Moore was a promising free safety prospect coming out of Southern Miss, but the 2018 third-rounder

49ers: Mike McGlinchey feels he's had a 'solid year,' criticizes 'lazy narrative' from critics

Mike McGlinchey welcomes criticism of his play, so long as the critic is looking at the entire body of his work instead of picking out a play or two here and there. He acknowledged that he has made mistakes this season. However, McGlinchey feels that his overall performance has been better than many are making it out to be. The third-year tackle sees the analysis on social media and is fine with it, so long as it is done right. Said McGlinchey on Wednesday: "Obviously, I don't really appreciate people who are the armchair quarterbacks that take a 30-second clip off of Twitter and think they understand offensive-line play. I don't like that." Pro Football Focus grades show that McGlinchey's overall play has been improving as the season progresses

Despite injuries, Rams coach Sean McVay expects 49ers defense to be a 'phenomenal challenge'

It seems like injuries have impacted the San Francisco 49ers no matter where you look on the team's roster. On Sunday, fans saw what Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was able to do against an injury-depleted group of 49ers cornerbacks. Injuries have decimated the pass rush. Now, linebacker Kwon Alexander is expected to be out indefinitely with a high-ankle sprain. You would think Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay would be salivating at the opportunity to attack the injury-plagued 49ers defense. That isn't the case, though. He has too much respect for his division rival, coached by his good friend, Kyle Shanahan. McVay was
