49ers’ Trent Baalke Could Land With Broncos

According to several reports out of San Francisco, 49ers GM Trent Baalke will likely be pushed out this offseason. If that’s the case, then he may not be out of work for long. Baalke, who has a good relationship with John Elway, could wind up with the Broncos, sources tell Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.comTrent Baalke (vertical)

Baalke and Elway have spent time considerable together while the two teams held joint practices each of the past two summers. Elway figures to continue as the Broncos’ lead decision-maker, but Baalke could be brought in with some type of consultant title.

Although the 49ers are struggling with just one win so far this year, the team isn’t too far removed from success. In Baalke’s first three seasons at the helm, the 49ers made deep playoff runs. The Niners made it to the conference championship round in the 2011 and 2013 seasons and reached the Super Bowl following the 2012 season.

Baalke may not get to run another team right away, but he is highly respected as a college talent evaluator and could bring that expertise to Denver next year.

    I can’t wait to see this guy go and I hope the reports are true about the family take over control of the team from Jed.

    This is great news, both the 9ers and the Broncos will suck.

  3. If I were a Broncos fan I would immediately start a Change.org petition addressed to John Elway demanding that Trent Baalke not be allowed a job in the organization even as the janitor or three guy who collects the jock straps after every practice.
