Maiocco: 49ers are not shopping Torrey Smith nor is a trade anticipated

Oct 24, 2016 at 10:37 PM--


Insider Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area has refuted the rumor that San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith is on the trading block.


News of a potential trade of the 49ers receiver broke earlier tonight when Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that multiple teams had shown interest in Smith. Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk then reported that, according to multiple sources, the Philadelphia Eagles were a team that was in discussions with the 49ers to acquire Smith.

"No deal is imminent, but the Eagles potentially acquiring Smith makes sense," wrote Florio. "He's been disappointing while playing on bad offenses in two seasons with the 49ers, and the Eagles would love to bolster their receiving corps for a run at the NFC East title."

Smith entered the season as the 49ers' number one receiver but has struggled through seven games. Jeremy Kerley actually leads the team in receiving with 30 receptions for 331 yards and two touchdowns. Smith has 13 receptions for 199 yards and two touchdowns. He was the 49ers' biggest free agent acquisition of the 2015 offseason and was signed to a five-year, $40 million contract with the team.

The 49ers struggling are currently 1-6 and have entered their bye week. "There's nothing worse than continuing to lose," Smith said during an interview with KNBR on October 18. "Everyone's doing their part to make sure that we're handling our business and we can try to finish this thing out strong and see what happens."

"I'm glad you guys don't talk to me within the first 24 hours of a loss," Smith later added.

The 49ers Should Not, and Will Not, Trade Up to Draft a QB

By Brian Renick
Feb 18, 2021

Carson Wentz was traded on February 18th, 2021, from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Indianapolis Colts, for a 2021 3rd-round pick and a 2022 2nd-round pick that can turn into a 1st-round pick if Wentz reaches 75% of the Colts' offensive snaps in 2021 or 70% of the offensive snaps and the Colts make the playoffs. With Wentz headed out of Philadelphia, there is not a single quarterback drafted in the first round from the 2012 through 2016 NFL drafts who is still with the team that drafted him (with some not even in the NFL anymore). That is an astounding stretch of incredibly poor quarterback drafting. It also highlights a very important fact about drafting a quarterback in the first round: there are significantly more busts than hits. The 49ers



Florio predicts the 49ers will release Jimmy Garoppolo rather than trade or keep the QB

What will the San Francisco 49ers do with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo? The simple answer is that the team will retain his services, should a perceived upgrade not present itself. If a perceived upgrade is acquired, then the team will likely try to shop the quarterback. "Most presume he'll be traded," wrote Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk on Tuesday. "But here's the question: If the 49ers don't want to keep Garoppolo at the balance of his current contract, who would trade for the thing?" The New England Patriots would likely welcome back Garoppolo with open arms — for the right price. They have the cap space to absorb his salary.



Peter King weighs in on what it might cost for 49ers to trade for Deshaun Watson

Would the 49ers be willing to trade one of their top two young defensive stars, a slew of draft picks, and more if it meant getting Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson in return? It's possible that's the type of package they might have to ship in Houston's direction if they ever have the chance. And it's one that NBC Sports NFL writer Peter King proposes in his latest Football Morning In America column, in which he comes up with his own deals for teams that could be interested in bringing the three-time Pro Bowl quarterback into the fold. King starts this discussion with an important disclaimer, which is the Texans have yet to give any sign whatsoever that they are actually interested in trading Watson, even though Watson (4,823 passing yards, 33



Simms can't envision a 49ers trade scenario involving Nick Bosa

Chris Simms conducted an ask-me-anything version of his podcast, Chris Simms Unbuttoned, and spent a good deal of time discussing quarterback Deshaun Watson and his situation with the Houston Texans. Watson wants out, but the Texans want to repair the estranged relationship. There would be high demand if Watson were actually able to force a trade. His no-trade clause means that he would have a lot of say in any potential destination. It's not a stretch to believe that San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan might be intrigued by the possibility of adding a talent like Watson to his offense. Of course, there is no urgency on the part of the 49ers, as they have made it clear they are pleased to move forward with Jimmy Garoppolo. San Francisco has
