49ers Training Camp News: Vernon Davis, Vance McDonald To The Redskins?

The San Francisco 49ers are loaded for bear at the tight end position, and with the Washington Redskins suffering a major blow with Logan Paulsen's season-ending injury, rumors are swirling around the teams' training camps that a potential deal could be in the works.

"Washington has one starter-caliber tight end, Jordan Reed, who is ready to return to practice after dealing with a hamstring strain," the Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows wrote recently. "Reed has been nicked a lot during his career. If that happens again, McCloughan could be more desperate to work a deal. I highly doubt that Vernon Davis -- even though he is from Washington, D.C. and played nearby at Maryland -- would be part of a trade (Dan Snyder would be for it; McCloughan against it). But I wonder if Vance McDonald is obtainable."

While there's no deal in the works quite yet, nor has there been any leaked formal contact, McDonald could fetch a solid draft pick considering the Redskins' dire need at the tight end position.

Whether 49ers management can strike a workable deal with the unpredictable Daniel Snyder and the Redskins front office remains to be seen.
