How signing Dee Ford changes 49ers’ plans in 2019 NFL Draft

How signing Dee Ford changes 49ers’ plans in 2019 NFL Draft

According to ESPN, San Francisco will give Ford a five-year, $87.5 million deal once the trade is completed. After the Chiefs moved to a 4-3 scheme heading into the 2019 season, Ford was always a likely trade candidate.

The Chiefs and 49ers have a deal in principal for pass-rush specialist Dee Ford.

Ford will reportedly receive a significant contract extension from the 49ers.

Going from playing under the franchise tag to a whopping five-year extension is unbelievable for a player like Ford, and as hard as it's going to be leaving a playoff-caliber team in Kansas City, at least a fresh start in San Francisco will be a great opportunity for the defensive end.

Moving Ford seemed inevitable after the Chiefs chose to switch from a 3-4 base defense to a 4-3 under new coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, the former Giants defensive coordinator. His breakout campaign came one year after an injury-riddled 2017 and two years after a breakout campaign in which he registered 10 sacks and 17 quarterback hurries. It's a sentiment that San Francisco general manager John Lynch shared at the National Football League scouting combine last month. "When you have them, they can be a difference-maker. He's had some production and if he is here with us, I'll be excited to have him and be excited to work with him".

R. Kelly likely to get out of jail Saturday, singer's management says
King then accused Kelly of "playing the victim card". "I sat down with him and I don't know what he is going to say she said". Kelly aired Friday as a primetime special that showed the tense moments immediately after the singer's outburst .

San Francisco has been searching for a player on the outside fitting that description since it parted ways with Aldon Smith in 2014.

According to multiple reports, Kansas City received a second-round pick in the 2020 draft. Ford recorded 51 total tackles and 13 sacks in 2018, matching a career high set in 2016.

The 49ers ranked No. 22 in sacks this past season after getting to opposing quarterbacks just 37 times.

MMQB first reported on the trade agreement.
