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.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters after today's practice and provided an update on Javon Kinlaw. The second-year defensive tackle has been dealing with a setback in his knee, an injury that occurred on December 20, 2020, against the Dallas Cowboys and forced him to miss the last two games of the season. Kinlaw was officially listed as "doubtful" for Sunday on the team's injury report. With the knee issues continuing to resurface, Shanahan was asked if injured reserve is a possibility for the defensive tackle. "Not yet," the coach responded. "I mean, he's still got a chance to play this week, so we're still trying to decide that. So, not yet." General manager John Lynch didn't sound too optimistic about Kinlaw's

Kyle Shanahan: 'Doing things better,' not tweaks, will lead to an improved 49ers defense

The 49ers had their first game of the season Sunday against the Lions, and it was DeMeco Ryans' first game as the defensive coordinator for the 49ers. Ryans, who was promoted after former defensive coordinator Robert Saleh became the head coach of the New York Jets, made the impression this offseason that he wanted the team to be ultra-aggressive, beginning with the defensive line. And that was the case Sunday, as four different 49ers (DT Kentavious Street, DE Nick Bosa, DE Arik Armstead, and DE Dee Ford) racked up at least five pressures, with Armstead leading the way at 9 total for the game. However, with the positives came some work to improve on, as the 49ers allowed 116 rushing yards, with most of the damage coming along the
