Ian Williams and 49ers agree to 5-year deal

Mar 9, 2016 at 6:08 AM--


Multiple sources are reporting that scheduled San Francisco 49ers free agent NT Ian Williams and the team have agreed to a new five-year contract. While the exact financial details of Williams' contract are not yet known, NFL Networks' Ian Rapoport reports that it is worth between $5 million and $6 million per year. The new deal will keep Williams in San Francisco until 2020.

Williams, who is just 26 years old, was among five 49ers players that were scheduled to become free agents at 1 PM (PT) today, which is the start of the new league year. The four remaining free agents are WR Anquan Boldin, G Alex Boone, RB Reggie Bush, and K Phil Dawson.

Seen by many as the 49ers' top free agent talent, Williams led the defensive line in tackles in 2015. He is considered to be one of the best nose tackles in the league and finished 2015 strong.

Williams became a starter in 2014, but a broken leg ended his season after nine games. He started all 16 games for the 49ers in 2015.

Two weeks ago, the 49ers extended the contract of DT Quinton Dial by three years. That deal maxes out at $16.5 million over those three years and Dial will get $5.3 million guaranteed.

Williams joined the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame in 2011.

The San Francisco 49ers found themselves in what they perceived as a tough situation last season. The team lost both starting offensive tackles to injuries. Naturally, knowing that the roster was capable of something special, general manager John Lynch started to look into his options. Disgruntled Washington tackle Trent Williams was one of those options. "We had made a call about it in the last season when Joe (Staley) and (Mike) McGlinchey were hurt, thinking, wow, this could be an option," Lynch told Greg Papa during the 49ers' virtual State of the Franchise event this week. "When those guys come back, maybe we play him at guard." The trade, obviously, didn't happen during the season. It did happen, however, during the third day of this year's

The San Francisco 49ers have announced the signing of wide receiver Jauan Jennings, who played college football at Tennessee, to his four-year rookie deal. The 49ers selected him in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft with the No. 217 overall pick. Jennings becomes the second 49ers draft pick signed after fifth-round selection Colton McKivitz, an offensive lineman, signed his contract on June 19. That leaves defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw, wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, and tight end Charlie Woerner as the team's only unsigned draft picks. Jennings caught 146 passes for 2,153 yards with 18 touchdowns in five seasons with the Volunteers, including a 59-catch,

That means that Williams and the 49ers must agree on a new contract extension before he hits free agency in 2021, or agree to part ways. As part of his reworked contract with the 49ers, OT Trent Williams cannot be franchise tagged after this season, per source.
