Givens and Bryant in Santa Clara....

Wide receiver Antonio Bryant is currently visiting Santa Clara and may be interested in joining the team. He will likely visit the 49ers team facility on Sunday.

Bryant spent the last two seasons with the Cleveland Browns and was drafted in 2002 by the Dallas Cowboys. Known throughout his career as a troubled player, Nolan and the team may be willing to take a risk on him. Statistically, last season was his best year when he amassed 1009 yards receiving on 69 catches with 4 touchdowns.

Bryant may be able to improve a weak 49ers receiving group.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the team is interested in Antwaan Randle El. Randle El has spent the past 4 seasons in Pittsburgh and has 2012 total career yards and 7 touchdowns on 162 catches. The team is also interested in acquiring another Pittsburgh Steeler, safety Chris Hope.

According to the Boston Herald, the San Francisco 49ers have spoken with wide receiver David Givens' agent regarding the possible signing of the former New England Patriot. Givens is also in Santa Clara and may visit the team Sunday.

Givens' best statistical year was 2004 where he amassed 874 yards on 56 catches (15.6 YPC) and 3 touchdowns. Last season he had 738 yards on 59 catches (12.5 YPC) and 2 touchdowns.

This would help the team since they traded wide receiver Brandon Lloyd today to the Washington Redskins. The 49ers received a 3rd round pick in 2006 and a 4th round pick in 2007.

Lloyd has angered many players on the 49ers. The following is from the San Francisco Chronicle:

Defensive players particularly found him unsavory and a few of the defensive leaders, during a meeting between Nolan and selected veterans, told Nolan the locker room would be better off without Lloyd. Lloyd also alienated teammates when he refused to take any blame after backing off a pass at the goal line in the 17-9 loss to the Bears in Chicago in November. Lloyd repeatedly said quarterback Cody Pickett "threw the ball too early."


The 49ers had also hoped to sign former Seattle Seahawks receiver Joe Jurevicius. However, he signed with Cleveland today.

The Redskins are also pursuing 49ers linebacker Andre Carter and he visited with the team today. Word is that the Redskins may be close to a deal with Carter and that he spent today with the team owner and other available free agents. While the Redskins have admitted to be interested in linebacker Julian Peterson as well, according to the Washington Post, they have stated that they will not be a major player in the race to sign the free agent.

NO 9erman. You already have done enough damage for the day by making me doubt our new boy Lloyd. Now your scaring me into thinking maybe our backup option (Givens) if the Randle El deal doesn't fall through won't work.

NOOO!!! Only if we don't get Randle El. Then you can have them. As a matter of fact you can have Bryant. I started a 5 page thread on him and I got the impression the rest of the forum didn't like him.

Re: Givens and Bryant in Santa Clara....

Not much experience there. Maybe an experienced #3 is what you guys need to show your young guys the ropes. Who is the mentor out of those two? Mike Nolan?

We are supposed to be looking for a experienced backup to Smith.
We would have a major upgrade at WR if these guys sign. I read earlier that the only players Nolan would visit were those that already agreed to terms.

Hey man you gotta be more understanding. Remember the 90's (AFTER 92). Now how much fun was it watching Heath Schuler get trampled and Westbrook droping passes. The 49ers are going through the same thing and we should be able to relate. I did not lose a leg in Vietnam to watch us fight each other

Re: Givens and Bryant in Santa Clara....

both could help you, but there's a lot of guys that could help the 49ers right now. this really isn't the year to go for WRs though. bryants the best bet as far as talent, he's a bit of a twat though.

What is up with the font? Not to be a jerk, but did you intentionally change the font to make it illegible?

Texans | Givens cancels visit; reports say he re-signed with New England
Sat, 11 Mar 2006 23:12:28 -0800

John McClain, of the Houston Chronicle, reports free agent WR David Givens (Patriots) has canceled his visit with the Houston Texans Sunday, March 12. Reports out of New England late Saturday evening, March 11, were that Givens had decided to re-sign with the New England Patriots.


striking early was good for us, looks like the WR market is down two already with only 2 noteables (and TO) left.

Good point, That Guy. Hey, maybe SF can pick up TO, he'd be a good fit out there, right?
