San Francisco’s mass email to the NFL saying Taylor Mays was available in a trade sounded like the desperate move a fantasy league football player would make.
The 49ers, however, say they are dealing from a position of strength. Coach Jim Harbaugh says they received trade interest in Mays.
“Full disclosure, there have been inquiries about Taylor over the past eight days,” Harbaugh said via CSNBayArea.com. “Now it’s to the point, let’s check it out. That’s where we are now.”
We can’t imagine they’ll get much for the 2010 second round pick. He was playing behind C.J. Spillman, even before Donte Whitner was added to the mix. The 49ers reportedly don’t believe Mays can move laterally enough to play in the NFL.
Yeah, that probably won’t help his trade value either.
