49ers, Giants showing interest in OT Eugene Monroe

Jun 16, 2016 at 11:27 AM--


Both the San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants are reportedly showing "preliminary interest" in OT Eugene Monroe, per Josina Anderson of ESPN. Monroe was released by the Baltimore Ravens on Wednesday.


Anderson states that Monroe's preference is to stay at left tackle, with both the 49ers and Giants needing help at right tackle. The 49ers have had Erik Pears practicing at right tackle for a lot of the the team's offseason program.



The Ravens released Monroe when a trade with the New York Giants fell through on Wednesday. Baltimore found a replacement for Monroe when they used their first-round draft pick on Notre Dame OT Ronnie Stanley.

Monroe, who is listed at 6-5 and 300 pounds, appeared in just six games in 2015 as he recovered from a concussion and shoulder injury. During his eight-year career, Monroe has appeared in all 16 games just once. That was in 2012. Although, he likely would have done so again in 2013 if he didn't miss his first game with the Ravens following a trade from the Jacksonville Jaguars. Prior to 2014, Monroe never missed more than one game in a season.

Monroe was drafted out of Virginia with the eighth over selection in the 2009 NFL Draft by the Jaguars.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have insisted that the San Francisco 49ers were interested in Trey Lance since they started scouting this year's rookie quarterback class. For Shanahan, that process started in January after last season ended. The 49ers traded up to the No. 3 overall pick and eventually selected Lance despite most in the media and around the league believing that the target was Mac Jones of Alabama. The 49ers insist that Lance was always the player to beat in their minds. He was the one for whom they made the trade. ESPN's Adam Schefter disputed that



49ers-Eagles: Goal line stand turns the tide after shaky 49ers start

If there was one significant turning point in the San Francisco 49ers' 17-11 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, it was most likely the unexpected goal line stand members of the defense produced after a 91-yard pass put their backs against the wall in the second quarter. Down 3-0 to the Eagles with just over seven minutes remaining in the half, the 49ers had a long field behind them after a punt from Mitch Wishnowsky pinned the Eagles at their own three-yard line. But on the first play after the punt, Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts went deep for wide receiver Quez Watkins, who went for 91 yards before being brought down by safety Jaquiski Tartt and cornerback Deommodore Lenoir at the 49ers' six-yard line.

With other suitors interested, the free agent waited to find the perfect landing spot following a one-season stint in Buffalo. "Like you said, they have a good defense," Williams continued. "They have a team that can compete, potentially win right now. So, you make the final call, man. What do you think?" Norman agreed, and the deal moved forward. "Alright, man. You're a Forty-Niner," his agent responded. Jay Glazer of FOX Sports was the first to
