Trade deadline comes and goes with no activity from 49ers

Nov 1, 2016 at 1:24 PM--


San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith confirmed today that there were "negotiations," but that he would have been surprised if a trade had actually taken place. "The selfish side of me thinks a change of scenery would be good," Smith said via Kevin Jones of KNBR. "But I'm a 49er. I'm going to play my ass off."


There were rumors going around that the Philadelphia Eagles might be a team interested in acquiring Smith via a trade. Today's 1 p.m. trade deadline has come and gone and Smith appears to still be on the team. After all, he practiced with the team today and was in the locker room talking with the media following practice.

OT Joe Staley, another name linked to multiple teams, also practiced with the team today. Something that likely would not have occurred had a trade been imminent.

This means that the 49ers were inactive prior to the trade deadline unless you count the signing of a safety with a history of injury to the practice squad. The 49ers squad was set prior to the deadline will be the squad that will finish out the season, barring any internal roster moves or free agent signings.

And if you thought the team might try to offload QB Colin Kaepernick, he too was in the locker room speaking to the media following practice. Offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins confirmed today that Kaepernick would be the starting quarterback when the team plays the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

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.

Kyle Juszczyk: Kyle Shanahan and Mike McDaniel's vision makes the 49ers dangerous

Kyle Juszczyk spent his first four NFL seasons with the Baltimore Ravens before signing with the San Francisco 49ers in 2017. The best fullback in the league re-signed with the team in March, ensuring he remains in the Bay Area through the 2025 season. It sounds like Juszczyk has no regrets about the decision to remain with head coach Kyle Shanahan. It's an offensive scheme that suits him and takes advantage of his unique versatility. Juszczyk may not have had the same opportunities with another organization. "I definitely have had the most fun in San Francisco because I am a little more featured," Juszczyk said this week on The Ross Tucker Football Podcast. "'Featured' is different as a fullback. I'm not the featured halfback or the No. 1 receiver. ...
