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.

John Lynch talking to George Kittle's agent every day to work out new deal, says Kyle Shanahan

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch and the team's contract negotiators continue to work diligently to come to an agreement with tight end George Kittle's agent, Jack Bechta, on an extension. Fans were probably hoping that would have been finalized by now, with training camp well underway. The situation isn't something that head coach Kyle Shanahan has to be too concerned with, for now. He remains focused on preparing his players for an unprecedented and unpredictable 2020 season, set to be played amid a pandemic. Shanahan's focus is on football and not contract negotiations. That's the job of Lynch and his staff. Still, Shanahan knows how important Kittle is to the 49ers. He's a special player who the coach considers to be the best

Seahawks' Acquisition of Jamal Adams Isn't a Checkmate to Kyle Shanahan and 49ers

The Seattle Seahawks' trade for safety Jamal Adams gives the San Francisco 49ers' division rival one of the players best suited to defend an offense that features running backs and tight ends in the passing game. The San Francisco 49ers have perhaps the league's top offensive mind in head coach Kyle Shanahan while the Seahawks have a defensive guru for a head coach in Pete Carroll. When the 49ers have the ball the two go toe-to-toe on play calls in a manner that can only be compared to a game of chess. Shanahan calls passing plays designed to get tight end George Kittle or one of the bevy of players who line up in the backfield open as much as any coach in the NFL. Just fewer than 50 percent of the 49ers' passing yards in 2019 went to a back or tight

Seahawks Desperation No Threat to 49ers

It's been 7 years since the Seattle Seahawks won their first Super Bowl title. It's been 6 years since Russell Wilson completely blew the Seahawks' chance to win their 2nd Super Bowl title. Yes, Seattle has been a playoff contender for nearly every season since, but it's hard not to acknowledge that the 49ers' neighbors to the north have underachieved since the last time the two teams met in the playoffs. Seattle once brandished the most dominant defense in the NFL with a peak Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor, Michael Bennet, Cliff Avril, KJ Wright and Bobby Wangner. Listing those names gives you a sense of just how formidable and dangerous that unit was. On the other side of the ball, Pete Carroll had a young Russell Wilson at quarterback to create magic with RB
