49ers agree to a deal with safety Antoine Bethea

Mar 11, 2014 at 1:08 PM--




According to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, the San Francisco 49ers have agreed to terms with former Indianapolis Colts safety Antoine Bethea. It will be a 4-year.


According to Colts beat writer Mike Chappell, the deal is said to be worth $26 million over 4 years.


Bethea was drafted in the sixth round of the 2006 NFL Draft by the Colts. In his eight seasons with the Colts, Bethea has had 806 tackles, 3.5 sacks, and 14 interceptions. However, in the past three seasons, he has only had 2 interceptions. Both of those were in 2013.

The 49ers lost safety Donte Whitner to the Cleveland Browns at the start of free agency.

Rotoworld has Bethea listed as the fourth best available safety in free agency, right behind Whitner.

SI writer Greg A. Bedard appears to think the signing is good.

Scot McCloughan spent two seasons as the San Francisco 49ers general manager, helping build the roster eventually taken over by Trent Baalke and Jim Harbaugh. Before that, he was the team's VP of personnel. Matt Barrows of The Athletic spoke with McCloughan to get his opinion of his former team's most recent draft class. While his pre-draft grades had Zach Wilson, whom the New York Jets selected at No. 2, rated higher than Trey Lance, the 49ers' pick, McCloughan would have personally selected Lance over Wilson. He wouldn't have, however, traded two future first-round picks to move up to get him. The inexperience at North Dakota State and the level of competition created too many unknowns. But personally, he still liked Lance more than
