New York Giants Potential Free-Agent Target: Clint Boling, OG, Cincinnati Bengals

Here is another player who would fit nicely into the Giants offensive line. It seems like we have spent the entire offseason discussing how to construct the New York Giants offensive line. Draft Brandon Scherff. Or Andrus Peat. Or La'el Collins. Or somebody. Sign Mike Iupati. Or Bryan Baluga. Or Orlando Franklin. Or somebody who can play guard so we don't have to watch John Jerry try to do it again. So, hey, why fight it? Let's throw another name into the discussion. A good one this time, too. Cincinnati Bengals offensive guard Clint Boling. Boling is a four-year veteran who has spent most...

49ers Free Agent Watch: Mike Iupati

Following the 2009 season, the 49ers desperately needed help to fix their porous offensive line. The team had two picks in the first round of the 2010 draft and used them to select tackle Anthony Davis (11th overall) and guard Mike Iupati (17th overall). The picks were a homerun and helped transform the San Francisco […]

Bucs, Washington expected to have interest in Mike Iupati

The market for left guard Mike Iupati should be significant, and we appear to have two expected early suitors. Left guard Mike Iupati is expected to have a fairly robust market, and we already have a couple teams to keep on the radar. According to NBC's Dianna Russini, Washington and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are both interested in Iupati, with Washington's interest described as "strong". This all follows what I thought was a rather interesting tweet from Matt Maiocco earlier Friday It looks as if LG Mike Iupati will hit the open negotiating market on March 7, but a return to the 49ers...

NFL Free Agency 2015: Buccaneers like Mike Iupati

According to Dianna Marie Russini of NBC, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers like Mike Iupati. The San Francisco 49ers left guard is expected to be the top free agent offensive guard in the class, and one of the top free agents overall. Meanwhile, the Bucs have a big need at left guard. Connect the dots! Unlike most available offensive linemen, he's both experienced and young -- a rare combination, even more so given the fact that he's actually good. Not perfect, but good. Three Pro Bowls and one first-team All-Pro selection don't happen by accident. Of course, signing him will be very expensive and...

Report: Redskins Have Interest in Signing FA Guard Mike Iupati

The Redskins reportedly have interest in signing the top guard in free agency Mike Iupati(6'5", 330 lbs, 27 years old) was not a Scot McCloughan draft pick, he was taken by the San Francisco 49ers in the 1st round of the 2010 draft.  McCloughan was fired by the 49ers shortly before the draft, so it is safe to assume that he had put a lot of time into scouting Iupati and other first round talent considering they had two picks in the 1st round to work with.  Dianna Russini of NBC Washington is reporting that the Redskins will have a strong interest in signing Iupati when free agency begins...

New York Giants Potential Free-Agent Target: Mike Iupati, OG, San Francisco 49ers

Three-time Pro Bowl guard is a mauling run blocker. After watching his team finish 30th in the league in yards per rushing attempt in each of the past two season New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin has made it plain that he wants to see the Giants run the football better in 2015. One way the Giants could try to do that is by pursuing one of the best run-blocking guards in all of football when free agency open next month -- Mike Iupati of the San Francisco 49ers. Iupati, who turns 28 in May, is five-year veteran left guard who has been named to the Pro Bowl three times and was All Pro in...

Would Mike Iupati be a good franchise tag option for 49ers if guards were separated from tackles?

Here's a hypothetical: would you want the 49ers to use the franchise tag on Mike Iupati if the tag separated guards from offensive tackles? The San Francisco 49ers have overall done pretty well with the selection of guard Mike Iupati back in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft. He's a dominant run blocker who is also pretty solid against the pass, and has put together multiple strong seasons in San Francisco. As it happens, the worst of those seasons was probably 2014-15, which leaves a lot of people here with a soured opinion on him. Recently, Fooch ran a predictions post on Iupati, who...

49ers free agents 2015: Predictions for Mike Iupati

The San Francisco 49ers have 15 unrestricted free agents this season. We're taking a look and predicting what will happen with each of them. Today is left guard Mike Iupati. The San Francisco 49ers have 15 players hitting unrestricted free agency this offseason, including some big, big names. They weren't successful overall last season, but there were flashes of strong play and they weren't that far removed from making the playoffs at the end of the day. They've got a talented team, and losing all 15 of those guys would be disastrous. There's 15 unrestricted free agents, two restricted...

Mike Iupati listed near top of NFL.com's free agent rankings

Mike Iupati is arguably the biggest name on the 49ers roster due to hit free agency. NFL.com has him as their top ranked offensive lineman. Is there any chance he returns? The San Francisco 49ers have 15 unrestricted free agents this year, and one of the most notable is left guard Mike Iupati. Early indications are that Iupati will likely be looking at a sizable contract offer from somebody this offseason. While his pass blocking has left something to be desired, his run blocking is strong enough that someone will pay big bucks. NFL.com ranked this year's top 25 free agents, and Iupati is...
