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 49ers had contract talks with Williams' representatives before the team's final game of the season but couldn't come to an agreement. The veteran tackle admits that his preferred offseason outcome would be a return to San Francisco but is curious about his free-agency value. "It's been 11 years in the league,"
