McCloughan receives calls about spare offensive lineman

May 1, 2007 at 3:39 PM--


From Matt Maiocco's blog:

McCloughan said he's already received some calls about spare offensive linemen after the 49ers selected Staley in the first. No names were mentioned, but obviously Justin Smiley and Kwame Harris have contracts set to expire at the end of the season.

"We've fielded some (calls)," McCloughan said. "Once we get the through this minicamp and teams see the rosters in person, we'll probably field some more. (But) we're not forcing anybody out or trying to push anybody out. We feel very comfortable with having good football players on the offensive line. You can't start dealing guys because you have five you like. You need backups as well.

"If something happens now, it's because we win the trade and we get the compensation we want. We're not going to give anybody away."

In his first start since stepping back into the quarterback spot after a season-ending injury to Trey Lance, Garoppolo finished 18-of-29 with 211 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. He also stepped out of the end

Here are the offensive grades for the 49ers in Week 3: Quarterbacks: D Jimmy Garoppolo had a porous performance and was undeniably the primary reason the San Francisco 49ers lost on Sunday.
