Mar 5, 2015 at 6:55 AM--


According to his agent Drew Rosenhaus, defensive lineman Darnell Dockett has agreed to a two-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers.

The deal for the 33-year old is worth $7.5 million with $4 million in the first year and $2 million in guaranteed money.

Dockett, who was released by the Arizona Cardinals last week in a cap saving move, visited with the San Francisco 49ers this week. FOX Sports' Mike Jurecki stated yesterday that 49ers players were reaching out to Dockett and lobbying to bring him to the Bay Area.

Dockett has amassed 459 tackles, 40.5 sacks, four interceptions and seven forced fumbles during his career.

Docket was entering the final year of his contract with the Cardinals and was due to make $6.55 million. The Cardinals were trying to bring him back at a lower cost and even offered him a one-year $2.5 million deal with a chance to earn up to $4 million, but he chose the NFC West rival 49ers instead.

Things have been uncharacteristically bad for the Seattle Seahawks lately. After starting the season 2-2, with one of those wins coming on the road against the 49ers in Week 4, the Seahawks have struggled as much as any team in the NFL, losing six of their last seven games. The offense has been problematic while quarterback Russell Wilson hasn't found his top form since returning from finger surgery, and at this point it seems likely they'll miss the postseason for only the second time since 2012. The 49ers have been moving in the opposite direction, winning their last three games after a 3-5 start while picking up momentum towards a possible playoff run. But despite the way things have been trending, the 49ers aren't getting overconfident at all about their

The 49ers had the ball on a 4th-and-Goal with seconds to play when quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo spotted wide receiver Trent Sherfield open near the end zone. Garoppolo threw the ball in Sherfield's direction, only to have it batted away by the 6-7 defensive end. With the game on the line, the Seahawks defense came up HUGE 💪📺 Re-watch the game »



49ers' Nick Bosa, Kyle Juszczyk among top vote-getters for Pro Bowl

Voting for the upcoming Pro Bowl has been underway for a while now. The NFL released some stats on the leading vote-getters so far. Two San Francisco 49ers currently lead their respective positions. Kyle Juszczyk leads all fullbacks with 70,362 fan votes. Nick Bosa leads NFC defensive ends with 68,143 votes. Juszczyk, a nine-year veteran, has been named to the last five Pro Bowls, with the first coming in 2016. He is widely considered to be the best fullback in the NFL. Although, his 62.5 overall Pro Football Focus grade this season is his lowest mark since his rookie campaign. Bosa is proving to be even more dominant than he was in his 2019 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year campaign. He has already surpassed his rookie sack total of nine with a
