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.

Jeremiah doesn't see the 49ers drafting Mac Jones as an 'arrogant' move

Former NFL scout John Middlekauff recently described the possibility of the San Francisco 49ers making Mac Jones of Alabama the No. 3 overall pick as "arrogant." Jones appears to fit the mold of what head coach Kyle Shanahan has sought in the past — a smart and accurate passer who can manage his offense well, à la Kirk Cousins, Matt Ryan, and Jimmy Garoppolo. It's hard for many fans to look past the possibility of passing on Justin Fields of Ohio State or Trey Lance of North Dakota State, though. Many among the media feel the two are better long-term prospects, too. Both are seen as more athletic prospects with potentially higher upsides. Not only could they turn out to be great in the pocket, but their athleticism could provide Shanahan with an added dimension



Analyst on 49ers' draft options: 'John Lynch wants Trey Lance'

Analyst and writer Michael Detillier, who contributes to several media outlets, joined the BetQL Daily podcast on Thursday and discussed the San Francisco 49ers' upcoming quarterback decision in next week's draft. Detillier recalls the day the team moved up nine spots from No. 12 overall to get into a position to acquire one of the top young talents. He was getting ready to publish his mock draft and needed to make some changes as it was headed to print due to the trade. While the national narrative quickly linked Mac Jones of Alabama to the 49ers, Detillier heard that general manager John Lynch had his sights set on a different prospect. Whether or not head coach Kyle Shanahan felt the same way is unknown. "When I went to print was the day of the

The San Francisco 49ers shocked the NFL world on March 26 when they traded a haul of draft picks to move up to the No. 3 overall pick in this year's draft. It got everyone talking and speculating. Former BYU quarterback Zach Wilson was going through his pro day when the news broke. General manager John Lynch was in attendance, and the story seemed to overshadow the workout of the player widely expected to go No. 2 overall. While everyone immediately assumed the 49ers' blockbuster move was for their quarterback of the future, which was confirmed by Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan three days later, one confident top prospect wasn't so sure.
