Kyle’s update, 7:25 p.m. PT: Tom Compton filled in admirably for Mike McGlinchey this past season for the 49ers. He’s signing a one-year deal to join the Denver Broncos, who already have signed D.J. Jones.
I’m curious to see whether this means the team invests in another tackle this offseason, or if Jaylon Moore continues to work at tackle.
Kyle’s update, 5:33 p.m. PT: Raheem Mostert has agreed to a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins, according to his agent, who said he would like to continue to work with new Phins head coach Mike McDaniel.
I’ll be interested in following Mostert’s season with Miami. They have Chase Edmonds, so does Mostert serve as 1A to Edmonds 1B?
Kyle’s update, 3:35 p.m. PT: The 49ers have signed defensive tackle Hasaan Ridgeway to a one-year deal worth $2.5 million with $1 million guaranteed.
Ridgeway, 27, is the likely D.J. Jones replacement. He spent the past three seasons with the Eagles. In 2021, he had 20 tackles, two for loss, including two sacks and six quarterback hits. At 305 pounds, Ridgeway figures to serve as a 1-technique.
Von Miller is out of the NFC West. Miller, who will be 33 in 10 days, signed a six-year deal worth $120 million.
Kyle’s update, 2:04 p.m. PT: The Titans have signed Trenton Cannon, who served as the 49ers kick returner and was a key special teams member last season.
The Titans also released Julio Jones, which saved them $9.5 million. Can Kyle Shanahan turn down Julio on the open market?
Kyle’s update, 12:51 p.m. PT: ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported that the Browns are “breaking regardless” with Baker Mayfield and “want an adult” at quarterback. As hilarious as that is, Mort said, “Jimmy Garoppolo is one I would not ignore for Cleveland.”
The Browns feel like the most plausible destination and seamless transition for Garoppolo. Cleveland runs the same offense as the Niners.
The Browns on picks No. 13, 44, 78, 99 (comp), 106, 117, 201, and 221.
Kyle’s update, 11:32 a.m. PT: The Raiders have signed Chandler Jones. The AFC West is loaded with talent. As a corresponding move, Las Vegas traded Yannick Ngakoue to the Colts which will include CB Rock Ya-Sin.
Kyle’s update, 11:11 a.m. PT: The Seahawks have signed edge rusher Uchenna Nwosu to a 2-year deal worth up to $20 million. Nwosu was a name Akash and Jordan wanted the 49ers to pursue during free agency. Seattle is betting on Nwosu’s potential, a word that gets people fired.
ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported the 49ers are not placing a restricted tender on Kentavius Street, who becomes a free agent at the start of the new league year. The 49ers can work out a deal with Street, but I’m not sure he fits what they want to do along the defensive line. So I’d imagine they let him walk.
Deshaun Watson is meeting with the Falcons today. The Saints, Browns, Falcons, and Panthers all have offers to the Texans for Watson. Jimmy Garoppolo isn’t going anywhere until the Watson domino falls.
The Browns released tight end Austin Hooper with a post-June-1 designation. If you recall, the Niners had an interest in Hooper a couple of offseasons ago.
The Colts and Eagles proposed that both teams have an opportunity to possess the ball in overtime, while the times suggested that both teams possess the ball unless the team with the first possession scores a touchdown and a successful two-point try.
Late last night, the Browns signed WR Jakeem Grant, who had been linked to the Niners. Grant signed a three-year deal worth p to $13.8 million.
