May 21, 2007 at 4:53 PM


According KFFL.com, Matt Maiocco of the Press Democrat reports that the Seattle Seahawks, Baltimore Ravens, Denver Broncos and Chicago Bears are all interested in possibly trading for San Francisco 49ers OG Justin Smiley.

It is unknown if KFFL is referencing new information or if they are simply referencing the below article from over 2 weeks ago.

SF willing to part with right guard Smiley

Smiley, who is listed at 6-3 and 301 lbs, has been an impressive young offensive lineman over the past couple of years and helped running back Frank Gore gain 1,695 yards rushing last season.

While Smiley is a valued member of the team, he is also entering the final year of his contract. The 49ers have tried to resign Smiley but his asking price is much more than the team is willing to pay.

Smiley is entering his 4th NFL season.

Update (9/22): Since there has been no update to this news, it is pretty safe to assume that KFFL.com was referencing the article from over two weeks ago.

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle joined the "Dan Patrick Show" and was asked a question he had not encountered before: What would he change about the strategy the 49ers deployed in their Super Bowl loss against the Kansas City Chiefs?
