49ers Place Taylor Mays on Trade Block Via Email

Updated: August 5, 2011

Adam schefter has reported that the “49ers sent out a mass email this afternoon to teams around the league to try and trade safety Taylor Mays.”

If you don’t remember who Taylor Mays is, he was the athletic safety that played at USC two years ago with Mark Sanchez, Joe McKnight, Clay Matthews, and the rest of the “post Bush” era USC Trojans. The 49ers selected him in the 2nd round of the 2010 NFL Draft. It was rumored that Taylor was a little salty that his college coach Pete Carroll didn’t trade up to draft him to the Seattle Seahawks (Taylor is from Seattle as well).

Doesn’t seem like that’s an issue. Soon as Pete checks his Gmail he’ll probably put something together with the 49ers.
