SANTA CLARA – Cornerback Richard Sherman is not clamoring for the 49ers’ front office to make a blockbuster trade.
He said he likes the roster that coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch and his staff have assembled. The 49ers head into their home opener on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers with a 2-0 record.
“I think we’re good with what we have,” Sherman said on Thursday. “We leave that to the front office. I don’t make those decisions. But, obviously, they felt comfortable with what we had going into the season. That’s why they cut the guys they cut and kept the guys they kept.”
Washington holdout offensive tackle Trent Williams might be available in a trade, but the 49ers are set to go with rookie Justin Skule at left tackle for up to two months as Joe Staley recovers from a fractured left fibula.
“(We are) really confident in our guys at every position,” Sherman said. “It’s unfortunate we had an injury at tackle, but fortunately we’ll get Joe back at some point in the season and we believe in the guys we have to hold down the ship until he comes back.
“I think we’re really confident in our DBs and our corners, our linebackers, our D-line, our O-line, our backs, our quarterback, obviously, and our receivers. So we’re ready to go.”
There has been plenty of trade activity in recent weeks in the NFL.

The Steelers come to town with new defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick, whom they recently acquired in a trade.
A source told NBC Sports Bay Area this week that the 49ers are “not in” on a potential trade with Jacksonville for two-time Pro Bowl cornerback Jalen Ramsey due to the price in draft picks it would take to acquire him as well as the cost of signing him to a lucrative contract extension. Ramsey requested a trade earlier this week, and Jacksonville general manager David Caldwell has reached out to teams to gauge interest in a deal.
