The 49ers are discussing a trade with the Broncos for cornerback Aqib Talib, Dianna Russini of ESPN reports. But the trade appears unlikely, Russini adds, which would suit Talib as he prefers his release so he can return to the Patriots.
Talib, 32, is due to make $11 million in base salary and count $12 million against the cap. The Broncos would save $11 million with his trade or release.

Goodson, 28, tore his ACL and MCL during the 2016 season. He started training camp on PUP and remained there until December 6. But Goodson did not last season, ending up on injured reserve after injuring his hamstring.
The Packers have used Goodson mostly as a special teams er since making him a sixth-round pick in 2014. He has three career starts at cornerback.
A lot of people think Barkley will be in the top spot on the Giants’ board, and that they’ll take him if he’s there. No doubt they consider him a dynamic player, and Shurmur is on record saying how much he needs a dual-threat running back.
