PFT: Joe Staley might be available via a trade

Oct 23, 2016 at 9:23 PM--


Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk is reporting that, per a source with knowledge of the dynamics, the San Francisco 49ers might be angling to trade tackle Joe Staley for the right price. According to Florio, the 49ers are angling for a first-round pick from a playoff contender for Staley. That means it would be a selection late in the first round.

Playoff teams typically trade from picks 21 through 32 in the first round. Of course, that could be different depending on any draft pick trades that take place. Florio says that Staley has been tied to the same teams that have some degree of interest in Cleveland Browns tackle Joe Thomas. Those teams are the Minnesota Vikings, New York Giants, Arizona Cardinals, Seattle Seahawks, and New England Patriots.

It is unknown if this information is pure speculation by his "source" or if these teams have a legitimate interest in Staley and not just a tackle in general. The inclusion of NFC West teams Arizona and Seattle seems odd, but not enough to debunk the rumor.

Over the course of the season, Staley has been the 49ers' top graded player per Pro Football Focus – not counting NaVorro Bowman, who is on the injured reserve list. He has been, by far, their best offensive lineman and that has been the case for years.

Staley, who is 32, is under contract through 2019. The trade window closes on Tuesday, November 1 at 1:00 p.m. PT.

Mariucci: 49ers might have the 'best roster in football' entering 2021

During a segment on Inside Training Camp Live, NFL Network's Steve Mariucci, or "Mooch" as he is known to fans, was asked to share his thoughts on the San Francisco 49ers as the team prepares for the 2021 season. It sounds like the analyst, like fans, has high expectations for head coach Kyle Shanahan's squad. While 2020 was a disappointment, the team owned the most injury-plagued roster in the league. The campaign wasn't what coaches, players, and fans envisioned for an organization coming off of a Super Bowl appearance. "This team, the 49ers, [were] 6-10, last place, and they might have the best roster in football," Mariucci told Andrew



Beat writer wonders if offseason additions could tempt 49ers to trade Raheem Mostert

The San Francisco 49ers should feel good about their running back depth. On their latest 49ers Talk podcast, Matt Maiocco and Laura Britt of NBC Sports Bay Area took a look at the team's offseason veteran additions and departures. When they landed at the running back group, Maiocco wondered if there is too much depth. Obviously, there is the argument that there is no such thing as too much depth. For example, the 49ers have to feel better about their quarterback position with high-potential rookie Trey Lance likely to open the season as Jimmy Garoppolo's backup. That's a better backup situation than the team had in recent years. At running back, San Francisco didn't just add veteran Wayne Gallman, who may be a severely underrated signing.
