49ers are one of six teams on Keyshawn’s radar

May 4, 2007 at 9:53 AM--


After some subtlety insulting comments about the team during the NFL Draft on ESPN, it is tough to believe that 49ers would want a wide receiver like Keyshawn Johnson. After questioning the team's ability to succeed in 2007, would he be able to buy into the 49ers' philosophy?

However, his release from the Panthers may have abruptly changed the unemployed wide receiver's point of view. According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, San Francisco is one of six teams that Johnson and his agent are thought to be concentrating on. The others include Green Bay (who many feel are the front runner), Seattle, Tennessee and both New York teams. The question is, how interested are the 49ers?

Johnson (6-4 / 211 lbs) is entering his 12th season in the NFL. He has played for the Jets, Buccaneers, Cowboys and last year with the Panthers. In 2006, he had 70 receptions for 815 yards and 4 touchdowns.

ESPN's Field Yates named five win-win NFL trades on Thursday morning, all while noting that such deals are unlikely. NFL trades, in general, are rare compared to other leagues, but the ESPN insider went ahead with the task anyway. The San Francisco 49ers were involved in one of the hypothetical trades, and it involved shipping off the team's second-round pick from 2018 — wide receiver Dante Pettis. Who would the Niners get in return? The Houston Texans' fourth-round selection from the same year, wide receiver Keke Coutee. "Coutee -- taken in the 2018 draft, like Pettis -- provides San

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that NFL teams may be required to limit the number of players who participate in training camps across the league when they begin later this month. At least, they are scheduled to start later this month. That would mean as many as 10 to 15 players from each team's 90-player roster might have to sit out meetings and on-field work. The idea is, of course, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic as the NFL continues to search for ways to increase the safety of its players and the chances of an uninterrupted season. "One source said he believed it's likely that teams will go to camp with 80-man rosters," writes Schefter,

We don't know what practices will look like when NFL training camps kick off across the league later this month. The NFL is still trying to figure out how to take precautions and limit interactions amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Of course, it is difficult to do that and prepare for an NFL season. The NFL Players Association (NFLPA) seeks to limit activities that increase the risk of transmission of the virus, and that includes a request that there be no 11-on-11 activities during practices, according to a report from Pro Football Talk. The players union also wants to limit practices and group activities in the days leading up to games,
