One of the more intriguing roster competitions this preseason has been at the long snapper position. The 49ers signed undrafted rookie free agent Kevin McDermott to compete with Brian Jennings, with McDermott getting a vast majority of the snaps in the preseason.
Now, it appears the team may be looking for a trade partner for Brian Jennings. Matt Maiocco implied as much last night with this tweet:
If 49ers can find trade partner for LS Brian Jennings, their decision on one of the team's few undecided roster spots becomes a lot easier.— Matt Maiocco (@MaioccoCSN) August 31, 2013
I mentioned yesterday that the team could be particularly active in attempting to make trades, so this kind of deal would make sense. Such a trade would allow the 49ers to save some cap room, while also getting a little something in return for a guy that could very well be cut anyway.
