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 held a light practice on Wednesday. According to tight end George Kittle, you probably couldn't tell by how he and his teammates were flying around. The 49ers are eager to get to Sunday and are doing everything they can to ensure they are sufficiently prepared for their NFC Championship Game matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. One more win sets the stage. During the 2019 season, the 49ers just missed their opportunity to earn the franchise's sixth Lombardi trophy. Here they are again, on the doorstep of another chance to redeem that heartbreaking loss. "It's what you dreamt about since you were a kid," Kittle told reporters on Thursday. "You dream about it when you're in high school and college. You dream about it when you're in the

The San Francisco 49ers lost in crushing fashion to the Philadelphia Eagles in a 31-7 game, going home in the NFC Championship Game for the second consecutive season. The game ended on an ugly note, as left tackle Trent Williams was ejected for throwing punches late in the 4th quarter. Following the game, head coach Kyle Shanahan understood the frustrations that Williams had, given the physicality between the teams. "You got two physical teams. Guys playing hard and I know we were frustrated at the end," said Shanahan. "Guys wanted to fight [and] wanted to play and it was a frustrating game for us." While tight end George Kittle wasn't involved in the melee, he was seen trying to break up the fight, as he didn't want his teammates fined



Retirement? 49ers' Trent Williams hasn't decided on NFL future yet

Trent Williams knows the San Francisco 49ers roster has the talent to bounce back from Sunday's disappointing loss in the NFC Championship Game and have another impressive season in 2023. Will he be a part of it, though? Williams has been in the league since 2010, when Washington made him the No. 4 overall pick in the draft. The 49ers traded for him in 2020. He has twice been named a first-team All-Pro, is a 10-time Pro Bowl selection, and will be a first-ballot Hall of Fame offensive lineman, when that time comes. Could that be in five years, assuming he retires now? Has Williams, the best offensive lineman in the NFL, contemplated calling it a career? "I mean, it's a long
