49ers trade for Broncos WR Sanders

The veteran receiver is moving on from a "world of suck" to one of the two remaining undefeated teams in the National Football League, as the 49ers (6-0) sit atop the NFC West. However, he had grown increasingly frustrated with the Broncos' losing ways over the past three seasons as well as his decreasing targets this season, a long drop from when he referred to the Peyton Manning-led offense as "wide receiver heaven".

Through seven weeks the Niners sit at 6-0, but that is due largely to a sharp defense.

San Francisco clearly believes it has a title contender on its team and is loading up to try and make a run. Only two 49ers players (Gould, Staley) have more pro experience on their resumes. The exact ETAs are available here, courtesy of NBC Sports.

Without question, the biggest issue with the 49ers has been their passing performance.

Kerryon Johnson had knee procedure, heading to IR
Johnson was having a tough start to his 2019 season averaging just 3.3 yards per carry with one 100-yard performance Week 4 vs. The Detroit Lions have placed running back Kerryon Johnson on the injured reserve list with a knee injury, the team announced.

We should also see increased opportunities for guys like Diontae Spencer, the punt returner who might be the fastest player on offense not named Phillip Lindsay, and Fred Brown, another speedy receiver who was initially signed to the Broncos' practice squad. "Tight end-wise, we have to step up and be productive".

Sanders was the second wide receiver traded on Tuesday, moving from Denver to San Francisco shortly after the Patriots traded for Falcons wide receiver Mohamed Sanu. Green, Mohammed Sanu and Devante Parker as other options along with Emmanuel Sanders.

The Patriots, Packers, Panthers, and 49ers were among the teams interested in recent days, and Elway said he talked to multiple teams about Sanders. That gives the 49ers an extra 2021 pick, another incentive to make a trade. Asked if he has received calls on Chris Harris Jr., "No, not lately". With a plethora of talent available, the 49ers would be remiss to sacrifice that much cap flexibility for a likely rental. Trading a 2021 second, while not ideal, is far less damaging with a 2021 third- or fourth-round pick on the way. With that being said, we were able to get the value that we thought was fair. "I think with the message that it sends to the rest of the team is they know what message is being sent because they've been around".
