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.

Bryan DeArdo of CBS Sports decided to look back at the 1980s and identify his top-five rivalries of that decade. There are several to choose from, which might make such a subjective list challenging to create. The San Francisco 49ers were represented within the ranking, not once, but twice. Sitting at No. 5 was the rivalry between the 49ers and the Minnesota Vikings. DeArdo lists the best game of the decade between the two teams as the October 30, 1988 matchup that saw the 49ers beat the Vikings 24-21. San Francisco owned a 5-3 regular-season record against Minnesota during the 80s, winning during

It sounds like Matt Barrows of The Athletic knows which San Francisco 49ers player from last month's practices in Nashville tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. Although, it is The Athletic's policy is not to name the player unless the team or player himself announces it. That probably won't happen at this point. Not that it really matters. The interesting tidbit from Barrows' most-recent mailbag article is that the player who tested positive was asymptomatic. That means he was not

Barrows: 'Someone in the know' feels George Kittle, 49ers could land on a contract worth $13 million a year

There has been a lot of speculation surrounding the long-term contract for San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle. Some even feel a new deal could fetch the All-Pro an annual salary up to $20 million. Naturally, when one person starts talking about those kinds of numbers, everyone does. That would shatter the ceiling of the tight end market. Right now, the top salaries for the position group remain under $11 million. To nearly double that when next year's salary cap situation remains uncertain might not be in the San Francisco 49ers' best interests, and at least one person doesn't believe it will come to that. "I recently spoke with someone
