49ers trade late-round draft pick to Jets for Jordan Willis

Oct 21, 2020 at 1:47 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have traded for 25-year-old New York Jets outside linebacker Jordan Willis, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.


San Francisco gives up a sixth-round draft pick in 2022 in exchange for Willis and a seventh-rounder in 2021. The trade will be made official once the linebacker passes COVID-19 protocols and a physical.


The Cincinnati Bengals made Willis a third-round selection out of Kansas State in 2017. He has recorded 52 tackles, three sacks, a pass defensed, and a forced fumble through his four NFL seasons.

The Jets claimed Willis off waivers on September 11, 2019.

H/t to Patrick Tulini for the find.
