Trent Williams, Jason Verrett, other 49ers free to negotiate with NFL teams

Mar 15, 2021 at 9:00 AM--

On Sunday, the San Francisco 49ers locked up fullback Kyle Juszczyk for the next five years. He was one of the team's top re-signing priorities before the start of free agency. Others include offensive tackle Trent Williams and cornerback Jason Verrett. Along with the 23 others scheduled to become unrestricted free agents, both are officially free to open discussions with other teams.

NFL teams had sole negotiating right with their impending free agents until 9 a.m. PT (noon ET). Now, player representatives are free to speak with other teams about their clients. However, contracts can't be finalized and signed until Wednesday.

The 49ers reportedly have offers on the table for both Williams and Verrett. Both players appear set to evaluate their options, though, and see what their values are.

"A huge ole bag of money is coming [Williams'] way," Mike Garafolo said on NFL Network this morning. "I don't know if it's going to be from San Francisco, but one thing they've got working against them—high state taxes in San Francisco. Some other teams are coming at him, they won't have maybe not even any state taxes."

San Francisco traded for Williams last year. The 32-year-old tackle had been out of football for a year but played at an incredibly high level—maybe one of the best of his career.

Last year, Verrett was completely healthy for the first time since 2015. The cornerback landed on injured reserve during five of his seven NFL seasons.

"An offer on the table from the 49ers," Garafolo's colleague, Ian Rapoport, reported this morning. "He has not taken it yet, and as we get closer to 12 o'clock (Eastern), it obviously makes it more likely that a player will test the market. We will see if he ends up going back to San Fran."
