The San Francisco 49ers have plenty of veteran depth in their WR corps but little in the way of sure-fire playmakers. Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin top the depth chart, but Crabtree will have to stay healthy and Boldin is aging. And if offseason additions Stevie Johnson and Brandon Lloyd are unable to secure the No. 3 role, they may not even make the final cut.

Virtually every player on the Phoenix roster last season enjoyed a career year, and much of the credit must go to first-year head coach Jeff Hornacek.

From Eric Bledsoe to Gerald Green to Miles Plumlee and the Morris twins, it was a year to remember around the Valley of the Sun -- even though they narrowly missed the playoffs.

Now heading into year two under the new regime, the Suns have had a chance to bring in more players who fit what Hornacek is looking for, and T.J. Warren certainly appears to be one of them.

Tommy Milone, demoted to the minors earlier this month following the acquisition of Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel has asked the Oakland Athletics to trade him, reports Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com.

Rosenthal adds “the Athletics have received trade inquiries on Milone, but the team is not eager to move him, knowing he might be needed due to injury or ineffectiveness.”

The A’s have no incentive to accommodate Milone, who is better than many starters currently in the majors. The southpaw owns a career 3.84 ERA in 468 2/3 innings, and had gone 6-0 with a 2.62 ERA in 11 starts prior to his demotion.
