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.

Shanahan expresses confidence in other tight ends as 49ers plan to travel without George Kittle

Bad news on the injury front keeps coming for the San Francisco 49ers, who on Friday announced they'd be without tight end George Kittle against the New York Jets this Sunday due to a knee injury. Kittle has been battling through the injury in recent days after sustaining it during the 49ers' Week 1 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Shanahan told reporters Friday the injury is one that would have resulted in a typical player being declared out earlier in the week, but Kittle's past resilience to injuries caused the team to wait until the last minute to make a decision. "We never really do that with George because of what he's shown us over these three years with him," Shanahan said during his Friday press conference. "We would have held out two more days to wait and

Dee Ford explains why his sights are set on playing every down for 49ers

By David Bonilla

Dee Ford is well-respected as a great NFL pass rusher. That isn't how he wants to be known, though. The San Francisco 49ers defensive end wants to be known as a great overall defender, and not a situational player. Ford suffered a calf injury during training camp and finally returned to practice this week. He told reporters on Thursday that he feels fine and is ready for the 2020 season. "When you're dealing with a calf, you don't want to risk it getting to that Achilles tendon," Ford said of the training-camp setback. "At the end of the day, we had to jump on it because our goal, and especially my goal, which is the team's goal, is to be there 16 games plus postseason. And I'm not going to waive on that at all. We just had to get that (injury)
