49ers, Chiefs agree to terms on Dee Ford deal

Report: Chiefs trading Dee Ford to 49ers

The 49ers will sign Ford to an extension worth $87.5 million over five years.

The trade is essentially agreed to - Ford for a 2020 2nd round pick.

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. During the 2018 season, coach Kyle Shanahan compared the importance of an edge rusher to the defense to that of a quarterback on offense.

Ford's trade is just the latest of several unofficial roster moves for the Chiefs ahead of Wednesday's start to the free agency period.

The alleged crimes are said to have taken place between 2011 and 2019, with arrests being made in six different USA states. Huffman, the records say, made the donation to the company "on behalf or her oldest daughter".

Linebacker Dee Ford is expected to be traded to the San Francisco 49ers, multiple reports say. Ford could wind up being one of the biggest additions of the offseason for any team if he can replicate that production with San Francisco next fall. 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.

The Chiefs slapped the franchise tag on Ford at $15.4 million in 2019 after a career year but were never going to give him the long-term contract he desires. It's unlikely Ford would be used in these packages as a "Leo" defensive end or "Sam" linebacker.

However, with Ford's ability to rush the passer, adding that kind of talent is clearly the priority for the 49ers. The other team was the Green Bay Packers.

According to Breer, the Chiefs will receive the 49ers' 2020 second-round draft pick in return. "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".
