ESPN’s Bill Williamson isn’t surprised that the 49ers showed interest in Flowers, but he’s also not shocked that San Francisco didn’t get him under contract in the end.
Williamson interprets the 49ers’ interest as a sign that they will be adding a cornerback at some point in the near future. However, Williamson believes they comfortable entering the season with their current group, but will monitor the free agent market in the event that a solid player becomes available.
There are number of notable players still available at cornerback, but it appears as though the 49ers aren’t enamored with any of them at this point in time. This is certainly a situation to monitor in the coming months.
