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.

Today, the San Francisco 49ers officially announced the retirement of veteran center Weston Richburg. Head coach Kyle Shanahan was the first to report Richburg's retirement, doing so last week while speaking with reporters during the first week of organized team activities. The center joined the 49ers on a five-year, $47.5 million contract on March 14, 2018. Richburg's 2019 season came to an early end due to a torn patellar tendon suffered during Week 14. He has not appeared in a game since and has had several surgeries following that injury. The center underwent the initial knee surgery. He also had shoulder and hip surgery since then. "Weston was

Patrick Daugherty of NBC Sports released his ranking of NFL head coaches heading into the 2021 season. Bill Belichick of the New England Patriots came in at No. 1, of course.
