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.

It is less than two weeks away from the 2024 NFL Draft, and the San Francisco 49ers finally have a first-round draft pick, after not having one the last two years. Who will they select? Will it be a defensive player? An offensive player? They could use help on the offensive line and in the secondary and defensive line. And they may also have multiple holes to fill a year from now. Either way, the 49ers need to hit on these draft picks, especially in the early rounds, where they haven't always been at their best. John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan have some first-round misses, like DT Solomon Thomas and LB Rueben Foster. But are those the worst first-round picks in team history? Neither made this list, though some will argue that Thomas should be on it, mainly because he was taken

On Wednesday, the Buffalo Bills made headlines with a blockbuster trade that sent wide receiver Stefon Diggs to the Houston Texans. Diggs has been highly productive throughout his lengthy career, surpassing 1,000 receiving yards in six consecutive seasons. Although Diggs' 2023 campaign was his least productive since 2019, the veteran receiver still amassed 1,183 receiving yards and eight touchdowns last season. The Bills received a 2025 second-round draft pick in exchange for Diggs while shipping a 2024 sixth-round pick and a 2025 fifth-round pick to the Texans. Meanwhile, the San Francisco 49ers are negotiating a contract extension for wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk. While general manager John Lynch has asserted that the team has no intention of trading their star
