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.

CB K'Waun Williams labeled as 49ers' secret weapon by Bleacher Report

K'Waun Williams is one of the best nickel cornerbacks in the NFL and a vital component of the San Francisco 49ers defense. There was some concern that he might be among several players slated to depart for other teams this offseason. However, Williams was re-signed to a one-year deal and, for the most part, San Francisco's brain trust managed to keep the team mostly intact. When healthy, Williams has proved his value. He showed that in 2019 during one of his best campaigns, posting an 80.3 overall Pro Football Focus grade during his over 700 snaps in the regular season. During the ensuring playoff run, Williams allowed just 66 receiving yards in three playoff games. Recently, Bleacher Report compiled a list of every NFL team's "secret weapon", where



Jimmy Garoppolo's ankle was 'an inch away from just snapping' last season, says 49ers' Trent Williams

Jimmy Garoppolo struggled to stay on the field last season, missing 10 total games as the San Francisco 49ers struggled to six wins. Trent Williams was among several players to speak to reporters today as the team reported to training camp. The offensive lineman revealed that Garoppolo's situation could have ended up being much worse. "A lot of people didn't know his ankle was damn near less than an inch away from just snapping," Williams told reporters. "Just watching him even fight through and try to play — a guy who has accomplished so much, got a lot of money, went to a Super Bowl — he didn't have to press forward like he tried to and tried to play hurt. The guys respect that." Garoppolo suffered his first injury — initially reported as a



Trent Williams on board with 49ers adding QB Trey Lance, doesn't think there will be a QB controversy

49ers offensive tackle Trent Williams has been around the NFL for over a decade, which means he fully understands just how harsh of a business the league can be. For that reason, Williams has no problem with the 49ers' decision to add rookie quarterback Trey Lance even though they already have a proven veteran in Jimmy Garoppolo, and he doesn't seem to think there will be any controversy as a result. Garoppolo led the 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2019 and carries a 22-8 overall record since joining the team in 2017. But he's also missed the bulk of two seasons due to injuries, has a contract with a hefty amount of non-guaranteed money over the next two seasons, and doesn't have the

Trent Williams stepped up to the podium yesterday for his scheduled media session, which was the first time since March that he was available to the media. During the press conference, Williams expressed confidence in the San Francisco 49ers team around him, saying he believes that they are the "team to beat" this season. "I feel comfortable in the team we have," Williams said. "I feel like when [we got] all the guys on the roster on the field, I feel like we the team to beat. So, it's the first time in my career I walked into a situation with that type of confidence." Prior to last season, Williams had played nine years with Washington, never winning a playoff game. He missed the playoffs altogether last year as part of the injury-riddled 49ers that
