Redskins free agent targets: Nine wide receivers that they may want

NBC Sports Washington is taking a long look at potential free agents that could help the Redskins in 2020. Emmanuel Sanders: He'll be 33 years old this March, but he'd be a perfect complement to a young and rising star like Terry McLaurin. Robby Anderson: Anderson has never had a full-on breakout campaign, but he's also never played fewer than 14 games in four years with the Jets and was usually good for about 50 catches for 750 yards and around five scores for New York.

49ers roster analysis: More receiver depth required around Deebo Samuel

Under contract (signed through) -Deebo Samuel (2022) -Richie James (2021) -Dante Pettis (2021) -Trent Taylor (2020) -Jalen Hurd (2022) -Marquise Goodwin (2021) -Chris Thompson (2021) -Shawn Poindexter (2021) As the 49ers look for ways to tighten up their cap situation, they will likely get out from under Goodwin's contract, which is scheduled to pay him $4.5 million in salary and bonuses this season. Goodwin was placed on season-ending injured reserve in December. Expiring contract -Emmanue...

Emmanuel Sanders reminds 49ers, NFL he still has some good years left

If not for Jimmy Garoppolo's overthrown pass, Emmanuel Sanders would have produced the highlight play of the 2019 NFL season. Unfortunately for quarterback, receiver and the San Francisco 49ers, alas, it was not to be. Sanders had the 49ers in position to win Super Bowl LIV, and he seems to truly want to help San Francisco get back to the big game next season.

Frustrated 49ers: Emmanuel Sanders walks off after 'dumb question'

Emmanuel Sanders, understandably, didn't want to talk after Super Bowl LIV. The losing side of a Super Bowl can feel like a funeral. Cam Newton famously walked off after a few short answers following a defeat in Super Bowl 50.

When Rams watch 49ers, they see a different way to build a winner

When a Rams executive was asked recently how he’s rooting in the Super Bowl, his answer included a surprise for anyone raised on L.A. vs. Bay Area sports rivalries. Rams Chief Operating Officer Kevin Demoff praised both the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs, said he didn’t have a favorite, but then told a group of writers: “You always want your NFC West brethren to do well.” Imagine a Dodgers exec saying something like that when the San Francisco Giants are in the World Series. It’s und...

CHIEFS DEFENSE The Chiefs’ defense did what no team couldn’t in the past month — contain Titans running back Derrick Henry.

Daddy’s Hangout Super Bowl LIV Predictions

We have the San Francisco 49ers taking on the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV. The Chiefs advanced to the Super Bowl by beating the Tennessee Titans. In the NFC, the 49ers overpowered the Packers to advance to the big game. Coming into the final game, my overall record is 89-48, which makes the winning percentage 64.96%. The last time these two played each other was the beginning of last season. In that game, Kansas City walked away with the win and Jimmy Garoppolo tore his ACL. This will...

Emmanuel Sanders talks up Wes Welker’s importance to the 49ers

When Emmanuel Sanders was in his first year with the Broncos, one of the veterans in the wide receivers room was Wes Welker. Now they're sharing a wide receivers room again, with Sanders as a veteran for the 49ers and Welker as the wide receivers' coach. Sanders said on Monday that although it felt a little strange having a former teammate as his coach, he's been impressed with the work Welker has done, especially with some of the younger receivers on the 49ers.

49ers' Emmanuel Sanders thinks Ben Roethlisberger 'bridge is burnt'

Emmanuel Sanders has one game left with the 49ers before becoming an unrestricted free agent, and he said he would welcome a reunion with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Sanders told The Athletic's Ed Bouchette on Monday that he'd be able to envision himself re-joining the Steelers after Super Bowl LIV -- if he still had a relationship with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. "I would love that, but me and Ben don't have the best relationship," Sanders told Bouchette.

Emmanuel Sanders on Ben Roethlisberger: “That bridge was burnt”

49ers receiver Emmanuel Sanders is scheduled to become a free agent in March. One thing seems certain about his uncertain future: There is zero chance he returns to Pittsburgh with Ben Roethlisberger still the Steelers quarterback. Sanders spent his first four seasons with the Steelers after they made him a third-round choice in 2010, and he made 161 catches for 2,030 yards and 11 touchdowns.

49ers' Kyle Shanahan, holding-prone Chiefs ideal fit in Super Bowl 54

After all, no team in the NFL was called for more penalties on pass plays during the regular season than the Kansas City Chiefs. And the consistency with which referee Bill Vinovich's crew calls those plays when the Chiefs are in man coverage against Kittle, as well as wide receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Deebo Samuel, could be a factor in which team leaves Miami with the Lombardi Trophy. Most of Kansas City's pass-play infractions during the regular season were defensive holding infrac...

Emmanuel Sanders ranked as 49ers' top scheduled NFL free agent by PFF

The 49ers do not want defensive tackle DeForest Buckner or tight end George Kittle to ever reach free agency. Retaining Buckner and Kittle appear to be the organization's top long-term priorities. The list includes three players who rank among the top 30 scheduled free agents, according to Pro Football Focus.

Emmanuel Sanders knows why Jimmy Garoppolo doesn't get credit he deserves

For most of the season, Jimmy Garoppolo's teammates have been demanding the 49ers quarterback get some respect. Each time Garoppolo made winning plays in crunch time, his teammates took to defending him, wondering when No. 10 would get the credit he deserves. Richard Sherman slammed critics of Garoppolo after the 49ers' thrashed the Green Bay Packers in Week 12.

Why 49ers' Emmanuel Sanders trade worked out so well for player, team

SANTA CLARA -- Emmanuel Sanders is the only featured 49ers receiver with more than three years' NFL experience. Sanders had an excellent run in Pittsburgh, followed by a Denver tenure that included two Pro Bowls and a Super Bowl championship. Winning got harder the last two-plus years with the Broncos, and the impending free agent and a fifth-round NFL draft pick were traded to the 49ers for third- and fourth-round selections.

Joe Staley helps protect 49ers veteran Emmanuel Sanders in locker room, too

The two eldest position players on the 49ers have two of the worst locker locations on the team. The 49ers have a regulation basketball hoop set up in the team's locker room at Levi's Stadium. The side of wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders' locker is closest to the basket, where errant shots often drift.

After playing 17 games, Emmanuel Sanders says regular season should not expand

Emmanuel Sanders got last week off, after being the only player in the NFL not to get a week off during the regular season. Sanders, who was traded from the Broncos to the 49ers before the Broncos' bye but after the 49ers' bye, played 17 games during the regular season, so he was glad the 49ers earned a bye in the wild card round of the season. He doesn't want to see any other player have to play 17 regular-season games like he did.

Updated: Rams say Wade Phillips is out as defensive coordinator

For three seasons with the Rams, Wade Phillips was a source of droll perspective for an anxious young head coach and anybody else who would listen to a man with decades of NFL memories. Now the Rams are another memory for Phillips, who was told Monday morning that he’s out as the team’s defensive coordinator. The Rams confirmed that Phillips’ contract won’t be renewed. Phillips himself confirmed it on Twitter, adding that “I still want to coach and feel I can contribute.” I have been informed b...

Sherman Tells Contract Critics ‘I Keep All The Receipts’

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The bet Richard Sherman placed on himself when he personally negotiated a free-agent contract with the San Francisco 49ers that included significant incentive clauses is paying off in a big way. Sherman was picked as a second-team All-Pro on Friday, earning him a $2 million bonus on the three-year contract he signed in 2018. Sherman was criticized by some former players, media members and agents for negotiating his own deal without an agent. The contract he got coming ...

Why Emmanuel Sanders feels less pressure as he savors 49ers' success

Just a few months ago Emmanuel Sanders was part of a two-win Broncos team and the veteran receiver's frustration level was palpable. Flash forward to Week 17 after the 49ers' 26-21 win over the Seattle Seahawks and Sanders rarely is seen without a smile on his face. Sanders' catches per game have actually gone down slightly since being traded to the 49ers.

Wade Phillips wants to keep coaching, but will it be with the Rams?

THOUSAND OAKS — The question was about whether Wade Phillips has done enough this season to earn another year as the Rams’ defensive coordinator. It got Phillips talking, as few NFL coaches can talk, about a lesson from 40 years ago. He was a young defensive line coach for the Houston Oilers, and his father, Bum Phillips, was the head coach. In 1978, ’79 and ’80, the Oilers won 10, 11 and 11 games but kept running into tough opponents in the playoffs. “You know, we lost two years in a row to Pit...

George Kittle shouts out Kyle Shanahan's guts on huge play in 49ers-Rams

With their backs up against the wall, 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan pulled into his back of tricks late in the 49ers' 34-31 win over the Rams in Week 16. The 49ers were facing a third-and-16 with 58 seconds left in the fourth quarter with the score tied at 31. But Shanahan dialed up a play that saw wideout Emmanuel Sanders slip behind the defense and catch a beautiful ball from quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for a 46-yard gain.

Garoppolo Must Deal With Seattle Crowd Noise For 1st Time

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Sunday’s game against the Seahawks in Seattle will be the biggest test of Jimmy Garoppolo’s career. Granted, he hasn’t had many tests yet — he has started only 25 games. And he has passed most of the tests opponents have presented him — his record is 20-5. But Garoppolo hasn’t started a game at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field, one of the loudest, gloomiest, most difficult places for opponents to play in the NFL, particularly for inexperienced quarterbacks. Since 2010, QBs ...

Jalen Ramsey blames teammate for blown coverage on 49ers' Emmanuel Sanders

On the most important play of the game of San Francisco's Week 16 win, Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey let 49ers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders run right past him on the line of scrimmage. Seconds later, Ramsey was chasing Sanders down from behind, after the latter had hauled in a 46-yard reception on third-and-16, setting up a game-winning field goal for Robbie Gould. At first glance, it appeared Ramsey was to blame for allowing Sanders to get so wide open.

49ers Eliminate Rams From Playoff Contention With 34-31 Win

SANTA CLARA, Calif.

Garoppolo made up for a mostly pedestrian game for the 49ers (12-3) by delivering two big throws on the final drive after taking his fifth and sixth sacks. He found Kendrick Bourne on an 18-...

Robbie Gould made a 33-yard field goal as time expired to give the San Francisco 49ers a 34-31 victory over the Rams Saturday night at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara. The loss drops the Rams to 8-7, and eliminates them from contention for an NFC playoff spot. Gould’s winning kick came after the Rams twice allowed the 49ers to convert on third-and-16 on the 49ers’ final drive. More to come on this game from SCNG’s Kevin Modesti, reporting from Santa Clara.
