Niners Show No Interest in Sheldon

You’re the San Francisco 49ers. You’ve just lost one of your starting corners, Walt Harris, to a torn ACL that will cost him the ’09 season. You need an experienced replacement.

Paging Sheldon Brown. Paging Sheldon Brown.

If I had been the Niners, the first thing I would’ve done after seeing Harris’s MRI was put in a call to the Eagles and see what they wanted for Brown, whose very-public unhappiness over his contract situation last month led to a trade request.

Yet, according to sources in both organizations, the Niners have not contacted the Eagles about Brown’s availability.

Instead, they are bringing in 32-year-old free agent Dre Bly today for a look-see. Bly was released by the Denver Broncos in February.

Your thoughts, boys and girls?
