Anquan Boldin, Phil Dawson, other 49ers set to hit free agency today

Mar 9, 2016 at 10:11 AM--


The new league year begins today, and with that comes the start of free agency. Teams have had since Monday to begin negotiations with pending free agents, but at 1 PM (PT), they can officially begin signing those players.

Who have the San Francisco 49ers reportedly been interested in? View our 2016 Free Agency Tracker for an organized list.

Early this morning, it was learned that the 49ers had re-signed scheduled free agent NT Ian Williams to a five-year contract. Just over two weeks ago, the team re-signed TE Garrett Celek to a four-year deal. As for G Alex Boone, who is included on the list, he has agreed to sign with the Minnesota Vikings.

Below is a list of the 49ers' unrestricted free agents that are scheduled to become available to any NFL team once the clock hits 1 PM.

Anquan Boldin, WR
35 years old
Despite having the fewest receiving yards of his career since 2004, Boldin still led the 49ers in receiving in 2015. He ranks 17th all-time in receiving yards and 12th all-time in receptions.

Alex Boone, G
28 years old
Seeking a new contract, Boone held out of the 49ers' 2014 training camp. He was recently rated by Pro Football Focus as the fifth best guard available in free agency. He will reportedly sign with the Vikings.

Reggie Bush, RB
31 years old
The injury-prone Bush was brought in to be a change-of-pace back for starter Carlos Hyde. Bush would play in only five games for the 49ers in 2015 and ended the season on IR after an injury in St. Louis.

Phil Dawson, K
41 years old
Yesterday, the Indianapolis Colts announced a contract extension with K Adam Vinatieri, who is 43. Dawson completed 89 percent of his field goal attempts in 2015 missing only three. That's just one more miss than Vinatieri.

Below is the 49ers' lone restricted free agent that will become available.

Tony Jerod-Eddie, DL
25 years old
The 49ers did not include Jerod-Eddie on Tuesday when they announced their qualifying offers for LB Michael Wilhoite and G Jordan Devey because they are working on a new deal for him and want to retain his services.

Spotrac predicts some key 49ers free agency comings and goings

What might things look like for the San Francisco 49ers after the first wave of free agency? Time will tell, but one possible scenario was laid forth by sports financial analysis website Spotrac earlier this week. Spotrac operator Michael Ginnitti posted a long list of free agency projections on February 17, which included guesses for salaries and destinations of the top impending free agents across the NFL. Ginnitti included two 49ers among his guesses -- offensive tackle Trent Williams and cornerback Richard Sherman -- while also projecting three other free agents to wind up in San Francisco. Ginnitti's projections on Williams and Sherman aren't



Kyle Juszczyk talks free agency, says 49ers teammates are reaching out

Kyle Juszczyk is just a couple of weeks away from hitting free agency, and from the discussion on Monday's The Pat McAfee Show, it sounds like the San Francisco 49ers fullback believes he will get to test the market. This is the second time Juszczyk will be a free agent. He signed a four-year, $21 million deal with the 49ers in 2017 after four seasons with the Baltimore Ravens. "Honestly, there really is so much that goes into it," Juszczyk told Pat McAfee. "Money, without a doubt, is one of the biggest things. I'm not going to be the guy that sits here and tells you that no, money doesn't matter because this is life, man. It's a business. Money is probably the No. 1 factor, but it's not the only factor. There's a lot. "Things like, can this



ESPN names two 49ers as 'sneaky-good' free agents, predicts landing spots for Deshaun Watson

ESPN's NFL experts answered some offseason-related questions, including identifying some "sneaky-good" free agents and predicting a destination for disgruntled Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson. Two San Francisco 49ers impending free agents were labeled as "sneaky-good" players that NFL teams should covet once the bidding wars kick off next month. That is assuming neither is re-signed before then. Matt Bowen named defensive end Kerry Hyder, who racked up a career-high sack total last season, his first with San Francisco. "Hyder has traits as an edge rusher off



Seahawks LB and impending free agent K.J. Wright sees no issues with 49ers

Seattle Seahawks fans already had to endure three years of watching cornerback Richard Sherman in red and gold, which looks less odd now than it did when he made his San Francisco 49ers debut. Could the Pacific Northwest handle another fan-favorite crossing over to the division rival? If you think the 49ers will have to do some creative maneuvering to stay under the salary cap — whatever the limit ends up being — the rest of the NFC West is in worse situations. San Francisco's over $13 million in projected cap space leads the division, per OverTheCap.com. The Arizona Cardinals look to have under $12 million, the Seattle Seahawks just over $4 million, and the Los Angeles Rams — well, they
