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.

Film From the Field House: The 49ers' Offense Found Success in Shanahan's Staple Plays

All football energy flows through the Great Magnet, and he has decided the San Francisco 49ers will endure more than their fair share of pitfalls and anguish this season. The 49ers began Week 9 already a hobbled franchise and were further undercut when wide receiver Kendrick Bourne tested positive for COVID-19 last Wednesday. Shortly after, tackle Trent Williams and wide receivers Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk also landed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. Only fools attempt to defy the negative energy that has gripped this rotten year. I'm not privy to head coach Kyle Shanahan's game strategy, but the laundry list of players out last
