49ers NFL trade deadline move No. 3: TE Ross Dwelley
Alright, copying the same idea we had before the Christian McCaffrey news broke, as it doesn’t seem San Francisco would have much of a need for its one-time No. 2 tight end, Ross Dwelley, who quite admirably backed up George Kittle in 2019 and 2020 but has since fallen out of favor to the new second-string tight end, Charlie Woerner.
Granted, the 49ers’ Week 7 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs resulted in fullback Kyle Juszczyk suffering a broken finger, and signs are pointing to him missing the Niners’ Week 8 road matchup against the Los Angeles Rams.
A perfect opportunity for San Francisco to showcase Dwelley in Juszczyk’s stead, right?

Again, Dwelley isn’t going to command much of anything by the way of NFL Draft capital, and like Tarvarius Moore, he’s also poised to hit free agency once the season is through. Teams typically don’t dish off draft assets for “rental” players unless there’s a clear need.
However, that shouldn’t stop John Lynch from exploring what the 49ers could potentially get out of a player like Dwelley.
The 2022 NFL trade deadline is on Tuesday, Nov. 1 at 4 p.m. ET.
