Today is deadline for 49ers to pick up Eric Reid’s fifth-year option

May 2, 2016 at 6:53 AM--


Today is the deadline for the San Francisco 49ers to pick up FS Eric Reid's fifth-year option, per CSN Bay Area.

There have been no reports of progress on a contract extension for Reid, an option that general manager Trent Baalke discussed in March. That means that his rookie contract's fifth-year option would need to come into play. Because Reid was a first-round selection, his rookie contract was for four years with an option for the 49ers to pick up a fifth.

"If we can get something done longer, I think we'll look at that. We're also looking at the fifth-year option, as well. I would expect him back (in 2017) for sure, one way or another," Baalke told CSN Bay Area in March.

A fifth-year option would pay Reid $5.676 million in 2017, an amount that would become fully guaranteed in March of the same year. If picked up, the 49ers could then continue to work on a long-term extension for the safety that would keep him with the team beyond the 2017 season. If the team decided that Reid did not fit into their long-term plans, they could still release him before March of 2017.

In 2015, Reid had 60 tackles, a sack, seven passes defended, a forced fumble, and no interceptions. However, in his prior two seasons, he hauled in seven interceptions.

49ers: Mike McGlinchey feels he's had a 'solid year,' criticizes 'lazy narrative' from critics

Mike McGlinchey welcomes criticism of his play, so long as the critic is looking at the entire body of his work instead of picking out a play or two here and there. He acknowledged that he has made mistakes this season. However, McGlinchey feels that his overall performance has been better than many are making it out to be. The third-year tackle sees the analysis on social media and is fine with it, so long as it is done right. Said McGlinchey on Wednesday: "Obviously, I don't really appreciate people who are the armchair quarterbacks that take a 30-second clip off of Twitter and think they understand offensive-line play. I don't like that." Pro Football Focus grades show that McGlinchey's overall play has been improving as the season progresses
