Niners looking at OT Pashos

The 49ers are taking a long look at tackle Tony Pashos, who is drawing interest around the league after being released by the Jaguars yesterday. The 6-6, 326-pound Pashos started all 16 games for the Jaguars last year. Jacksonville, however, drafted two tackles in April, Eugene Monroe and Eben Britton, and Pashos became expendable. The Jaguars asked Pashos to take a pay cut, and he refused. Pashos, 29, has missed one game in the last three years. He was a fifth-round selection by the Ravens in 2003. Three teams are believed to be interested in Pashos, including the 49ers.

The 49ers are looking at Pashos as a right tackle. They signed Marvel Smith in the offseason to play that position, but Smith's bad back never returned to normal, and he retired last month. As of now, Adam Snyder is the starter with Barry Sims backing him up.
