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.

It is no longer that time. 2019 was littered with headlines related to Odell seeking employment elsewhere. As a New York Giant, Odell was disgruntled about his money.

Simms explains why he's not yet sold on Jimmy Garoppolo

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has a lot to prove this season. Not necessarily to his teammates or coaches but to his critics within the media. That includes his head coach's buddy, Chris Simms of NBC Sports. Garoppolo endured much scrutiny this offseason after a fourth-quarter collapse in the Super Bowl eliminated a lead over the Kansas City Chiefs. That followed two playoff performances where head coach Kyle Shanahan relied more on his No. 2 ranked rushing attack than his franchise quarterback. Much more. "I like Jimmy Garoppolo a lot. There's no doubt about it," Simms recently told Laura Britt of NBC Sports when questioned about

Nick Bosa: 49ers not too shaken up about loss to Cardinals, will 'come back strong'

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers weren't about making excuses following their 24-20 Week 1 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. There could have been plenty — being rusty from no preseason, injuries, the lack of a normal offseason. All NFL teams across the league had to deal with at least two of those, though. The situation wasn't unique to the 49ers. You'll probably hear a lot more this week about the potential for a Super Bowl hangover. 49ers players aren't using that as an excuse either. While the goal is to get back to and win the big game this season, players have continually said they are taking things one week at a time and remain focused on each opponent ahead of them. "I mean, I hope we're not thinking about last year. We just played a
