More trade news: The #Chiefs are deep in talks with the #49ers on a trade for star pass-rusher Dee Ford, sources say. Things have escalated and this could get done by the end of the night. Ford needs to work out a new contract with SF, which is a big piece of this.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 13, 2019
The Green Bay Packers, who were also speculated to be interested, agreed to sign two pass rushers earlier Tuesday, which likely escalated the talks.
Rapoport later added that the deal is “essentially agreed to.” The Chiefs will receive a second-round pick in 2020.
ESPN’s Josina Anderson is reporting that the 49ers plan to give Ford a deal somewhere in the range of five years and $87.5 million, which would equate to $17.4 million per season.
The deal is done, per friend of the site Terez Paylor of Yahoo! Sports.
Ford just secured the bag, folks. He’s agreed to a five-year deal worth $87.5 million, a source confirms.— Terez A. Paylor (@TerezPaylor) March 13, 2019
And the contract year, my friends, remains undefeated.
On the Chiefs side of the trade, sending Ford to San Francisco means $15.44 million worth of free cap space for 2019. Are they targeting someone in particular?
Do you approve of the Chiefs decision to trade Dee Ford to San Francisco?
