Torrey Smith on trade rumors: “I’m not worried at all”

Oct 26, 2016 at 8:54 AM--


San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith was on the Murph & Mac show this morning on KNBR 680 and discussed, among other topics, the recent trade rumors involving him.

"I'm not worried at all," Smith said. "I think you see these conversations pop up during the bye week every year. Trades don't happen that often in the NFL in the middle of the season anyways. I mean, I don't know. I think if there was something legitimate, then I would probably know more than I know. But there's also times where that happens and you don't know a thing. I'm not really worried about it. If there was something that was going on, then I'm sure Trent would call my phone or Drew or whoever."

"You see things all of the time where you know it's not real or it's a smoke signal or different things may happen," Smith continued. "I don't know. I'm not really worried about it. I guess I'll be ready when we come back."

You can listen to the entire interview on KNBR 680.

Today, it was reported that Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson stated that there was no legitimacy to the recent wide receiver trade rumors and that he is happy with the players currently on the team.

On Monday, news of a potential trade of the 49ers receiver broke when Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that multiple teams had shown interest in Smith. Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk then reported that one interested team was Philadelphia. Although, Florio noted that no deal is imminent. Later that day, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area debunked the rumors stating that, according to a league source, the 49ers were not shopping Smith.

"A league source told CSNBayArea.com the 49ers are neither shopping Smith nor is a trade anticipated," wrote Maiocco.

What was real? What wasn't? Kyle Shanahan, John Lynch clear up weeks of 49ers rumors and speculation

Now that it's all over and the 49ers have decided on quarterback Trey Lance of North Dakota State as their selection with the third overall pick in the NFL Draft, how much of what was circulating about the pick throughout the past month over the NFL was actually true? Not a whole lot, according to 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan. Ever since the 49ers made the decision to trade up from pick 12 to pick three in late March, the NFL newswire has been filled with speculation and reports about what the 49ers were planning to do. Many felt like the 49ers had their eye on quarterback Mac Jones of Alabama, who wound up getting selected at pick 15 by the New England Patriots. Some felt quarterback Justin Fields of Ohio State might wind up



Jason Smith throws out wild theory that 49ers could trade Trey Lance for Aaron Rodgers

And here you thought the Aaron Rodgers-to-San Francisco 49ers chatter was over. I'll preface this by saying what Jason Smith of FOX Sports Radio said about the 49ers and the Green Bay Packers quarterback might be the most ridiculous thing you read today. Now that you have been sufficiently warned, brace yourself, and proceed, if you wish. Smith believes San Francisco remains interested in Rodgers, and drafting Trey Lance of North Dakota State with the No. 3 overall pick last week hasn't changed that. Now, any rational reporter or fan clearly understands that the Niners heard about the disgruntled Green Bay quarterback and did their due diligence, as head coach Kyle



La Canfora: Strong expectation among NFL GMs that 49ers try to trade Jimmy Garoppolo this week

The San Francisco 49ers have repeatedly stated that quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo remains in the team's plans for 2021. That would mean a rookie sitting behind him for at least the upcoming season, which makes sense. The 49ers are built to win now and have shown they can do so with Garoppolo at the helm. However, his durability has become a concern after missing 23 games over the past three seasons. Maybe that won't remain the plan. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that there is a "very strong" expectation around the league that San Francisco will make an effort to trade Garoppolo before or even during the draft. "Timing isn't great with 5 QBs about to go in 1st round, but Jimmy G's future there now seen as bleak," wrote La Canfora via



49ers TE George Kittle says Seahawks tried to trade up to draft him

Seattle Seahawks tight end George Kittle. That probably doesn't sound very good to San Francisco 49ers fans, but it could have happened. The All-Pro recently spoke with Matt Verderame on the Stacking The Box podcast (h/t to Tzvi Machlin of The Spun) and shared a story from the 2017 NFL Draft when a team tried to move up to grab him. Kittle's agent told him that he felt the former Iowa tight end might be selected as high as the second round, if lucky. However, most likely, they were looking at somewhere between the third and the sixth rounds. The 49ers ended up selecting Kittle in the fifth round, No. 146 overall, but
