49ers’ Trent Williams plans to play at least a couple more years

San Francisco 49ers tackle Trent Williams has his sights set on playing at least a couple of more years in the NFL. Even winning the Super Bowl against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday won't change that. This week, the veteran offensive lineman told Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area that he plans to suit up with the Niners in 2024—and likely in 2025.

"I haven't thought about the end, so I know I'm definitely in for the next couple of years," Williams said. "I'll revisit it after that."

At 35 years old, Williams boasts an impressive resume featuring 11 Pro Bowl selections and three first-team All-Pro honors. While many will certainly understand if the offensive lineman wants to ride off into the sunset after adding a championship to his resume, hoisting the Lombardi Trophy on Sunday night might only make him hungry for more.

"Winning on Sunday will only make me want to win another one next year," Williams said. "When you can achieve something that feels this good, you kind of get addicted to it, right? You want to achieve that award again. So I think that it will only make me want it more."

Williams' current contract with the 49ers extends through the 2026 season. His salary cap hit this season was over $31 million, a number that will increase in each of the next two seasons.

Despite his long and illustrious NFL career, the future Hall of Fame offensive lineman will make his first Super Bowl appearance on Sunday.

Graziano: 49ers have 'at least some interest' in Chase Young returning

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers made a significant move when they traded a third-round pick to the Washington Commanders to acquire defensive end Chase Young, aiming to bolster their pass rush in pursuit of a championship. However, last month, the Kansas City Chiefs dashed their Super Bowl aspirations, and Young is one of several 49ers defensive linemen set to become unrestricted free agents. Despite the return on investment falling short of expectations, the 49ers can envision retaining Young for their 2024 roster. "The 49ers have at least some interest in bringing back edge rusher Chase Young, who was a bit of a disappointment for them after their deadline deal to acquire him from Washington but is still just 24 and has a great relationship with star 49ers edge rusher

According to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area, the San Francisco 49ers have completed interviews with former Los Angeles Chargers head coach Brandon Staley and 49ers defensive passing game specialist Nick Sorensen for the team's vacant defensive coordinator position. The 49ers are seeking to fill the void left by Steve Wilks, who was dismissed after the team's defeat in Super Bowl 58. Wilks served only one season as San Francisco's defensive coordinator, during which the unit ranked eighth in yards allowed, third in points allowed, third in rushing yards allowed, and 14th in passing yards allowed

But this week kicks off the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, and free agency is only a couple of weeks away. So things will soon pick up. GM John Lynch spoke with reporters at the Combine on Tuesday. And while he didn't give a lot of new information, there were still some highlights to discuss.

ESPN analyst Mel Kiper unveiled his latest mock draft, projecting the 32 selections of the first round. For the first time since 2021, the San Francisco 49ers own a first-round selection and could use the pick to bolster the offensive line or the defensive backfield. However, Kiper has the team going in another direction. He proposes adding a pass rusher to complement defensive end Nick Bosa on the opposite side. Kiper's pick for San Francisco is Chop Robinson of Penn State. Kiper wrote, "It has to be offensive line or edge rusher for the 49ers, right? They need to find
