49ers get future 7th rounder for Taylor Mays

According to Adam Schefter, the 49ers will receive a 2013 7th round pick from the Cincinnati Bengals in exchange for Taylor Mays, who was a second round pick in 2010. A future 7th round pick is better than nothing for a player whom defensive coordinator Vic Fangio seemed to suggest was not NFL caliber. Still, […]

Goodbye Taylor Mays

According to Adam Schefter, the 49ers have traded Taylor Mays to the Cincinnati Bengals for an undisclosed draft pick. When they disclose the draft pick, I will provide that information for you here. I’m guessing it’s lower than a second-round pick, but I don’t have any inside knowledge. Cincinnati currently employs three members of the […]

Reggie Smith tears meniscus

According to Matt Barrows, Reggie Smith tore the meniscus in one of his knees and he will miss a couple of weeks, but it shouldn’t be a serious, long-term injury.

8/4 Practice notes: Smith vs. Kaepernick

SANTA CLARA – Practice was windy and cold in the Santa Clara dusk. Braylon Edwards lined up with the first and second-team offense today and looked good, considering he’d been on the team for about an hour. He caught a few short passes and hustled hard.

49ers shop Taylor Mays

ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the 49ers sent out a mass e-mail to the other 31 teams that they want to trade safety Taylor Mays. This move seems to suggest they like Reggie Smith, and that they’ll sign one more person to play strong safety, whether he be Dashon Goldson or another free agent. […]
