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."

There is a lot of speculation surrounding when San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback Trey Lance will earn his first start. Jimmy Garoppolo is slated to start Week 1. However, the veteran has made it out of September injury-free just once as a starting NFL quarterback. It may only be a matter of time before Lance gets onto the football field. Bettors are hoping to cash in on Lance's ability to do just that. More money has been placed on the 21-year-old quarterback being named the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Year than any other player. According to BetMGM, Lance has received 15.8 percent of the bets and 22.6 percent of

"San Francisco should be healthier on the whole in 2021, although it's impossible to project anybody on its roster to play all 17 games with any sort of confidence," wrote ESPN's Bill Barnwell in a recent feature for ESPN. The writer was tasked with ranking the NFL offensive weapons for all 32 NFL teams. Perched at the top of the list are the Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. At the bottom, as is the case with most rankings, are the Houston Texans. The San Francisco 49ers dealt with a historic number of injuries last season.
