Broncos and Texans are talking trade

Apr 25, 2007 at 4:45 PM--


According to Adam Caplan and Tony Pauline of Scout.com, the Broncos are talking with the Texans about a trade that would result in the Broncos moving up to No. 10 and Texans moving down to No. 21. This is significant to San Francisco because the Broncos appear to be interested in linebacker Patrick Willis or defensive end Adam Carriker. Defensive tackle Amobi Okoye also appears to be on their radar.

Willis and Carriker are believed to be the top two 49ers targets this weekend.

Lance Zierlein of the Houston Chronicle also seems to have heard the same thing. The following is from his blog today.

I heard from three different sources on Tuesday night and the biggest info potentially involves our boys (referring to the Texans). I'm hearing that the Broncos are going to try and make a move up the draft board and are looking to land somewhere ahead of San Francisco. Why? Because the Broncos are worried that the Niners will target the guy they want to get their hands on .... Ole Miss LB Patrick Willis.

Deebo Samuel's 49ers trade request wasn't a negotiation tactic, says Michael Irvin

After Deebo Samuel signed a three-year contract extension with the San Francisco 49ers, making the talented wide receiver a very wealthy man, some assumed that his April trade request was a negotiating tactic. According to Pro Football Hall of Fame wide receiver and NFL Network analyst Michael Irvin, it wasn't. Samuel legitimately wanted out of Santa Clara. In April, Irvin admitted that he spoke with Samuel after the Super Bowl, advising the young wideout to stay with Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers because that would be best for his career. "Like, it kind of felt, OK, he didn't receive that well," Irvin said in April. In an interview with 95.7 The Game on

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch spoke with reporters via a conference call on Tuesday. He did so from his office at the team facility, noting that he could see quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on the practice field from his window. "I'm watching him throw right now, and he looks pretty good," Lynch said. The general manager confirmed that Garoppolo is cleared to practice. However, both sides have "mutually" agreed that the best thing right now is to have the quarterback work on the side. Garoppolo doesn't have any restrictions, though. "Jimmy's doing a really good job, kind of building his stamina in the throwing program that was prescribed all along, and working out really strongly and aggressively," Lynch



Kyle Shanahan explains Jimmy Garoppolo's presence on 49ers-issued depth chart, isn't aware of trade interest

The San Francisco 49ers released an "unofficial" depth chart before today's practice. Head coach Kyle Shanahan shared that people probably shouldn't read too much into it because not much thought goes into it. The 49ers Communications staff compiles it, not the coaching staff, so Shanahan may not have even seen it. Jake Brendel is competing with Daniel Brunskill for the starting center job. So why is Brendel listed as the starter? "Because we had to put one there," Shanahan explained. One other position group stood out. With Lance solidified as the starting quarterback, the depth chart lists Nate Sudfeld and Brock Purdy behind him. Fourth on the list,

The sports world lost an icon on Tuesday. Legendary sports broadcaster Vin Scully died at the age of 94. Scully, best known as the long-time voice of the Los Angeles Dodgers, also called other sports during his illustrious career. That includes one game remembered by Bay Area fans as the greatest moment in San Francisco 49ers history. Scully and Hank Stram called the 1981 NFC Championship Game for CBS, a matchup between the 49ers and the Dallas Cowboys. Scully is the voice heard in replays of "The Catch," the throw from quarterback Joe Montana to wide receiver Dwight Clark, launching a
