49ers pick up Eric Reid’s fifth-year option

May 2, 2016 at 7:49 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers have picked up FS Eric Reid's fifth-year option, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.


Today was the deadline for the team to pick up the safety's option. 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.

The fifth-year option will pay Reid $5.676 million in 2017, an amount that will become fully guaranteed in March of the same year. The 49ers can 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 decides that Reid does not fit into their long-term plans, they can 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.

Breer: It would take a 1st-round pick for the 49ers to consider trading Jimmy Garoppolo right now

There is no sense of urgency from the San Francisco 49ers to move on from Jimmy Garoppolo. In fact, the quarterback fits nicely into the team's plans for the upcoming season, even after general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan pulled the trigger on moving up in the draft to secure a quarterback of the future. The 49ers are built to win right now. They believe they have a championship-caliber roster in place and that last season's six-win campaign was an abnormality due almost entirely to a historic number of injuries. If you feel you can compete for a Super Bowl, why would you supplant a veteran quarterback who knows the playbook and system for a



Here's what 3 sources told Dan Patrick about the 49ers and the No. 3 draft pick

Dan Patrick shared some insight into what the San Francisco 49ers are planning to do with the No. 3 overall pick after trading some hefty draft capital last week to move into that spot. Many analysts are projecting Alabama quarterback Mac Jones to be the pick, but others feel he could have been had with a later selection. Would Jones have made it all the way down to No. 12, the 49ers' original spot? Maybe not. But selecting him at No. 3 is viewed by many as a massive reach. With Trevor Lawrence of Clemson and Zach Wilson of BYU expected to be off the board by the 49ers' selection, both Justin Fields of Ohio State and Trey Lance of North Dakota State are widely seen as passers with higher ceilings compared to Jones. So, what is Patrick hearing? "Yeah,



Another report surfaces that 49ers seek a 1st-round pick for Jimmy Garoppolo

A second report stating that the San Francisco 49ers seek a first-round pick to consider trading Jimmy Garoppolo has surfaced. That means the team has no real desire to part ways with the quarterback despite making a move last week to draft his successor. San Francisco seeks to keep Garoppolo around for this season, allowing the team to ease a rookie into the playbook and offense. On Wednesday, Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated reported that it would take a first-round pick for the 49ers to consider altering their plan for the upcoming season. "I was told that, yes, it'd take a first-round pick for the Niners to listen at this point," Breer wrote, "which



Jeremiah on 49ers' pick in latest mock draft: 'I am surprised that everything you hear points toward Jones'

With so many smokescreens and teams keeping their strategies close to the vest, it's tough to believe anything you hear when it comes to pre-draft rumors and speculation. Everyone in the media feels the San Francisco 49ers traded up to the No. 3 spot for Alabama quarterback Mac Jones, whether they can make sense of it or not. Much of that is based on what they hear from around the league. Their colleagues and other teams feel Jones might be the pick, despite the overwhelming opinion that the selection would be a reach. NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks doesn't even view Jones as worthy of a first-round pick, much less No. 3 overall. "Perhaps the Alabama quarterback is a secret member of The Avengers, operating like Tony Stark as Iron Man,"
