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.
