The San Francisco 49ers would appear to be ready to move on from defensive tackle Earl Mitchell. The team is not expected to pick up an option they have on his contract Mitch Wishnowsky San Francisco 49ers Jersey , per NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport. At the end of the season, general manager John Lynch told the media they would remain in constant communication with their players, but would not share the specifics at that point. On Tuesday, head coach Kyle Shanahan told the media he thought they would have some decisions made sooner rather than later with regard to both Mitchell and fellow veteran Pierre Gar莽on.Mitchell signed a four-year deal prior to the 2017 season and had remained the starting nose tackle for most of the past two seasons. However, in the latter half of 2018, the 49ers moved second year defensive tackle D.J. Jones into the starting lineup. Mitchell was entirely professional about it, acknowledging the business side of things in an interview with Jennifer Chan.Mitchell has been a valued leader for the team Fred Warner Jersey , but it is no surprise the team is moving on to a younger option. Jones had his inconsistencies, but he showed some progress late in the season. The 49ers will likely bring in some more competition, but for the time being it would appear the nose tackle role is Jones’ to lose. Steelers General Manager Kevin Colbert said last week that three teams have been in touch about trading for wide receiver Antonio Brown and said on Wednesday that more teams have inquired about a deal, but the identity of those teams remains unknown.If it were up to Jerry Rice, the 49ers would be one of those clubs. When you throw in reports that the Steelers would like to send Brown to the NFC and the team’s past interest in trading for Odell Beckham, it’s not surprising that the Niners are included in many lists of possible landing spotsAs of now, though Solomon Thomas Jersey , 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan says the team is not in the mix. During his Scouting Combine press conference, Shanahan said, via Matt Barrows of , “not that I know of” when asked if the team has been in touch with the Steelers.It’s possible that General Manager John Lynch has spoken to Colbert without filling Shanahan in on the conversation, but it seems unlikely that he’d make any moves toward acquiring a player like Brown without consulting the team’s head coach.
