49ers, Chiefs agree to terms on Dee Ford deal

Trading Dee Ford shows Chiefs are willing to lose a marquee player for a better fit Trading Dee Ford shows Chiefs are willing to lose a marquee player for a better fit

According to Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer, the 49ers have agreed to trade their 2020 second-round pick to the Kansas City Chiefs in exchange for edge rusher Dee Ford.

In return for Ford, the Chiefs will reportedly receive a 2020 second-round pick.

According to ESPN, San Francisco will give Ford a five-year, $87.5 million deal once the trade is completed. He set career highs with 7 forced fumbles and 13 sacks in 2018.

The 49ers badly need to upgrade their pass rush and are expected to make multiple additions along the edges of the defensive line. The Chiefs' new 4-3 base defense must complement the new players who will arrive in Kansas City this spring, and vice versa. The move prevented the linebacker from hitting free agency on Wednesday, but Kansas City remained open to trading him as the team shifts defensive schemes.

He only had 2.0 sacks in six games in 2016, but had 10 the year before that.

Victoria to participate in global student strike for the climate
Even though the youth might not be in power, BHS junior Wyatt Rollins is glad that young people are leading the climate movement. A small number of parents had contacted Yeatman, but they were not in support of students missing class for the strike.

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

But given the time and effort it took to finally land one prominent edge rusher, there's plenty of reason to believe the Niners are poised to double down at the position Shanahan has compared to a quarterback on offense in terms of importance.

The 49ers still have a long way to go to build a championship contender, but Ford - despite his previous mishap - is the exact kind of player that will help them get there. Their leading edge rusher was Cassius Marsh, who recorded 5.5 sacks in 2018.

The 49ers finished 2018 tied for 22nd in the National Football League in sacks with 37, but aside from Buckner, they did not have another player with more than 5.5 sacks.

MMQB first reported on the trade agreement.
