NFC West Notes: 49ers, Cardinals, Rams, Seahawks



49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said earlier in the week that they were interested in DE Dante Fowler at the trade deadline, but were hesitant to part with draft picks for a player on an expiring deal.

We’re always interested in adding pass rushers, and he’s a good pass rusher to add,” Shanahan said, via NBC Bay Area. “It was just a tough situation for us because you knew he was on the final year of his contract, so you know you’re only making a trade for a guy who you can only guarantee half the year.

“So, you’ll see how that goes, but it was just a little risky for the situation we were in.
