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."

Steve Young calls the 49ers QB situation 'fraught with terror'

The San Francisco 49ers are no strangers to quarterback controversies. There was a big one in the late 1980s that involved a couple of future Hall of Famers. That the team was able to replace one Hall of Fame quarterback, Joe Montana, with another, Steve Young, is remarkable. It set an extremely high standard in San Francisco. Then there was the blistering hot quarterback controversy between Alex Smith and David...wait...never mind. Montana and Young were great quarterbacks who coach Bill Walsh used to push each other. Montana made Young better. And Young certainly made Montana
