49ers among four teams to offer contract to CB K’Waun Williams

Feb 21, 2017 at 7:08 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers are among the numerous teams that have expressed some level of interest in former Cleveland Browns cornerback K'Waun Williams, per NJ.com.

Williams has contract offers from four teams, including the New York Jets, which he visited last week. He also visited with the Detroit Lions. Other teams that Williams visited with or had plans to visit include the 49ers, Minnesota Vikings, and Miami Dolphins. It is unknown if those visits took place or which of those teams are among those that have offered a contract.

Update:
According to CSN Bay Area, the 49ers are indeed one of the four teams that have offered a contract to Williams. In addition to the Jets, the other two teams are the Lions and Dolphins.

Williams is expected to make a decision on a team later this week.

Williams, 26, has spent his entire three-year career with Cleveland after signing as an undrafted free agent in 2014. He was primarily used as a slot corner with the Browns.

Williams did not play in 2016 after a disagreement with the Browns over the treatment of an ankle injury that he suffered. After refusing to play in a preseason game, the Browns suspended Williams and then, in August, waived the cornerback. He immediately signed with the Chicago Bears, but failed his physical.

Between 2014 and 2015, Williams played in 26 games – starting 10. During those two seasons, he had 10 passes defended, three forced fumbles, two recovered fumbles, and two sacks. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan was the offensive coordinator in Cleveland when the Browns signed Williams. The cornerback also worked with Jeff Hafley, the 49ers current defensive backs coach, during his two seasons in Cleveland.

Kyle Shanahan confirms 49ers never made an offer for Matthew Stafford

After last season, the San Francisco 49ers looked at all of their quarterback options heading into free agency and the draft. At the time, the team owned the No. 12 overall pick, and the quarterback they were falling in love with, Trey Lance, probably wasn't going to fall that far. So the Niners did their due diligence on all possibilities, including a pre-draft call to the Green Bay Packers to see what was going on with Aaron Rodgers. Before that, reports often linked San Francisco to other quarterbacks like Matthew Stafford and Deshaun Watson. Head coach Kyle Shanahan already admitted to being interested in the former, saying that he was trying to get the 49ers involved in the talks for the former Detroit Lions quarterback. However, much to Shanahan's disappointment, the



PFF names QB among three 49ers training camp battles to watch

It's almost too easy to name the quarterback competition among the upcoming San Francisco 49ers training camp battles to watch. With players set to report to the team's facilities in Santa Clara next week, a lot of eyes will be focused on observing the progress of the No. 3 overall pick — quarterback Trey Lance. Should it be among the most intriguing competitions, though? San Francisco's brass has repeatedly stated that Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to be the starter come Week 1. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has a lot of confidence in his veteran quarterback. His availability, not his ability, has always been the concern. That doesn't mean the rookie won't try to prove himself a quick study and unseat Garoppolo. "I definitely see it as Jimmy's the



49ers' Fred Warner ranks No. 3 among NFL.com's best off-ball linebackers

NFL Network analyst Bucky Brooks recently ranked his top five off-ball linebackers in the league, and San Francisco 49ers fans may be disappointed to learn that the team's star defender, Fred Warner, was not at the top of the list. He wasn't at No. 2 either. Warner, who signed a five-year, $95 million contract extension last week, came in at No. 3, behind Bobby Wagner of the Seattle Seahawks and Darius Leonard of the Indianapolis Colts. Maybe that will be further motivation for the 24-year-old linebacker, who has many years in front of him. "The All-Pro has become one of the league's most disruptive players as an
