Adrian Colbert was seen with Pittsburgh Steelers large receiver Antonio Brown all through the weekend of Super Bowl 53. It seems to be like the San Francisco 49ers basic safety has moved his recruiting endeavours to the defensive facet of the ball and has a veteran he’d like to insert to the defensive backs place in his sights.
Colbert tweeted out a photograph of Seattle Seahawks basic safety Earl Thomas all through his time at the University of Texas. To make matters a little bit extra obvious, he additional 3 emoticons that spell out precisely what he has in thoughts — a goat, an airplane taking off, and the Golden Gate Bridge.
The Texas Longhorns play football in Austin, Texas and which is where by Thomas is these days. He and his wife even enrolled their kids in the Austin school district this week. Many observed that as a indicator to hook up the dots from Thomas to the Dallas Cowboys, the crew he grew up cheering and has expressed curiosity in taking part in for in the past.
Colbert experienced an option to practice with and learn from Thomas very last offseason.
Cornerback Richard Sherman, who is pals with Thomas, reported in December that he would do his component of recruiting Thomas to the 49ers and expects the crew to go after the basic safety.
“Would I adore to play with Earl Thomas III? Absolutely sure,” Sherman reported. “I would adore to. I would adore to have him back in the locker place. But I’m positive he’ll have a myriad of options, but I’m positive we are likely to toss our hat in the ring.”
The 49ers freed up about $5 million in salary cap house on Wednesday with the launch of offensive lineman Garry Gilliam. The crew is predicted to have about $65 million readily available when no cost company kicks off on March 13 and could have even extra if it sections ways with other significant-priced veterans together the way.
Previous 49ers cornerback Eric Davis tweeted out on Tuesday that he would adore to see Thomas, together with large receiver Antonio Brown, in San Francisco. Sherman was a fan of the concept.
Oh, and although looking at the replies to Colbert’s tweet, I located the next and just experienced to share.
