The San Francisco 49ers hoped to put the injury woes of the 2020 season behind them as they kicked this year off. However, the injury bug continues to bite, as Jason Verrett suffered a season-ending torn ACL in Week 1.

That major loss has spurred the 49ers to dip their toes in the trade market early on.

49ers Trade Rumors

San Francisco called the Minnesota Vikings about a possible deal for Cameron Dantzler, according to The Athletic's David Lombardi. Nothing came to fruition thus far, which led the 49ers to sign veteran Dre Kirkpatrick, but it shows this team isn't afraid to be aggressive to shore up the secondary.

And being shot down by the Vikings hasn't stopped San Fran from weighing other options. That includes continued interest in veteran Richard Sherman, who remains a free agent after some off-field troubles this summer.

A move appears to be on the horizon as the 49ers look to fill Verrett's shoes.

San Francisco is a 3.5-point road favorite against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 2, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
