49ers pass-rushing target No. 3: Brandon Graham, Eagles
One of the reasons Robert Quinn couldn’t make much of a dent with a Philadephia pass rush that netted 70 sacks during the regular season was because the savvy veteran, defensive end Brandon Graham, was still a massive force.
Graham, who’ll turn 35 years old this spring, enjoyed quite the bounce-back season in 2022 after injuries limited him to a mere two games the year prior. Of those 70 sacks the Eagles got last year, 11 of them went to Graham, and he made a strong case to be named the 2022 Comeback Player of the Year.
At any rate, it’s hard to envision Graham in anything but a Philly uniform, but with so many pending free agents, the team that beat the Niners in the NFC Championship game might be pressed to finally move on from the veteran after all.
If so, San Francisco could act as a happy suitor of his services.
