- Matt Barrows of the Athletic takes a look at some other players besides WR Pierre Garcon that the 49ers could move on from this offseason including DL Arik Armstead, DE Cassius Marsh, LB Malcolm Smith and OLB Dekoda Watson.
- Some free agent receiver options that could make sense for the 49ers, according to Barrows, include Tyrell Williams and Jermaine Kearse.
- If San Francisco looks to the draft, Barrows lists Ole Miss’s A.J. Brown, Arizona State’s N’Keal Harry and South Carolina’s Deebo Samuel as some names to keep an eye on.
“Every time I’ve turned on the tape, there is something you like and something you can build with,” Kingsbury said in an interview with Arizona Sport 98.7, via AzCardinals.com.
There has been a lot of speculation about the Cardinals possibly drafting Kyler Murray at No. 1 overall.
“He needs to understand we are in this together and I want him to know he kind of has the keys to the castle and let’s build this deal as a group,” Kingsbury said. “Make sure he is comfortable with what we are doing, if he doesn’t like something that is going on with this offense or the way I’m coaching it, let’s talk about it and come up with the best answer. When (the QBs) have that type of ownership, it goes a long way.”
It would be tough for the Saints to carry Drew Brees at $23 million for the 2019 season while also paying out $10 million for Bridgewater as their backup. However, it could give them a future successor to Brees when he’s ready to call it a career.
- Adam Schefter reports that Penn State assistant coach Phil Galiano is joining the Saints as an assistant special teams coach.
