Raiders made a ‘strong offer’ to 49ers safety Jimmie Ward, per report

Apr 3, 2020 at 1:27 PM--


We already know that safety Jimmie Ward turned down a better offer from another NFL team to rejoin the San Francisco 49ers. Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reported last month that the Las Vegas Raiders were among the teams interested in the versatile safety, but didn't explicitly state that was the team that made the competing offer.

Ward reportedly turned down an offer of $10 million a year from another NFL team and accepted a three-year deal worth $9.5 million annually with the 49ers.

Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL confirmed on Friday that the Raiders were indeed the team that offered Ward a competing contract. The former Bay Area squad has instead signed Damarious Randall, another versatile safety, to a one-year deal after already signing Jeff Heath on March 27.


"Jimmie has proven to possess many of the characteristics we are looking for in a 49er, and we are excited to keep him in red and gold," general manager John Lynch said via a statement following San Francisco's official announcement of the Ward signing. "His no-nonsense passion for the game amplifies his special physical abilities, while also setting a tone for our defense."

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

Kyle Shanahan admitted that he was frustrated by missing out on potentially pursuing Matthew Stafford in March. Instead, the Detroit Lions shipped the veteran quarterback to a division rival. The speed at which the trade went down shocked Shanahan, who thought he would have more time to get his San Francisco 49ers in the talks. "I was trying to get involved in it," Shanahan shared during a recent podcast interview with Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay and NFL Network's Peter Schrager. "Someone who had knowledge of the situation, I remember us talking to (agent Tom) Condon, just everyone, to find out when it was happening. I remember Saturday, I was so stressed
