Michael Wilhoite signs his exclusive rights free agent tender

Jun 10, 2015 at 2:17 PM--


Howard Balzer of FOX Sports Midwest is reporting that linebacker Michael Wilhoite has signed his exclusive rights free agent tender with the San Francisco 49ers. The tender will pay him $660,000.

In early March, there were reports that the 49ers were shopping Wilhoite to see if there was any trade potential for the linebacker. Of course, this was prior to the retirements of linebackers Patrick Willis and Chris Borland.

In 2014, Wilhoite started all 16 games while linebackers Navorro Bowman and Willis missed time due to injuries.

49ers general manager Trent Baalke has stated that the team is working to get Wilhoite a new deal. "He's kind of in a unique situation. He was kind of caught in a numbers deal," said Baalke.

Deebo Samuel's 49ers trade request wasn't a negotiation tactic, says Michael Irvin

After Deebo Samuel signed a three-year contract extension with the San Francisco 49ers, making the talented wide receiver a very wealthy man, some assumed that his April trade request was a negotiating tactic. According to Pro Football Hall of Fame wide receiver and NFL Network analyst Michael Irvin, it wasn't. Samuel legitimately wanted out of Santa Clara. In April, Irvin admitted that he spoke with Samuel after the Super Bowl, advising the young wideout to stay with Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers because that would be best for his career. "Like, it kind of felt, OK, he didn't receive that well," Irvin said in April. In an interview with 95.7 The Game on
