John Lynch discusses whether 49ers could be active at trade deadline

“As crazy as it sounds with just 11 day before the deadline, it’s way too early to know how teams will approach it.”

49ers trade targets: Brian Burns? Pat Surtain II? Sure, but there are more realistic options (paywall)

“The 49ers seemed to like Cleveland heading into the 2020 draft. They had a pre-draft visit with him that spring, albeit a “video visit” because in-person meetings were wiped out by COVID-19. It’s easy to understand the allure: Cleveland has length — 6 foot 6 with 33 3/8-inch arms — and was light on his feet for a 311-pounder.

“What’s going on? That gets to Kittle, who is an elite and ferocious blocker, playing left tackle B. That is, he has been asked to stay in and pass block more this season. He often has been serving, in effect, as a sixth offensive lineman, and has been sent out on fewer routes as a result. Kittle is on pace for 71 targets, 54 catches and 612 receiving yards, which would be his fewest in a season in which he has played more than eight games since his rookie year in 2017.”

Warriors’ Klay Thompson to join ‘ManningCast’ for 49ers-Vikings game

“Klay Thompson will join Peyton and Eli Manning on ESPN’s “ManningCast” during their broadcast of Monday night’s clash between San Francisco and Minnesota.”
