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.

The San Francisco 49ers streamed their annual State of the Franchise event on Wednesday, where owner Jed York, general manager John Lynch, head coach Kyle Shanahan, and receivers Brandon Aiyuk and Jauan Jennings were amongst the featured guests. Greg Papa, the longtime Bay Area radio announcer, hosted the event, and began the Shanahan-Lynch segment by asking about the draft, given the differences from prior years due to the lack of a first-round selection in 2022. Lynch believed that the strategy didn't significantly alter, as the 49ers continued with their holistic approach, although the team elected to make zero trades on draft day, which was a first since the Shanahan-Lynch era began. "We stayed pat because there were players there that we liked

PFF: 49ers QB Trey Lance one of players under most pressure to perform in Year 2

While there are several success stories of rookies flourishing immediately in the NFL, there are certain players, especially quarterbacks, whose learning curves require some more seasoning. Take Peyton Manning, who threw for 28 interceptions in his rookie year before becoming one of the best quarterbacks of all time, as an example. Earlier this week, PFF named ten players from the 2021 NFL Draft class that are under the most pressure to perform in Year 2, and unsurprisingly, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance was amongst the group. Lance, who was selected third overall in the 2021 NFL Draft, played



49ers' Brandon Aiyuk among PFF's Year 3 breakout candidates

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk was a hot pick last year as a candidate primed to have a breakout season. Instead, it was third-year wideout Deebo Samuel who emerged as one of the best in the game. Aiyuk was slow out of the gate, hauling in just one pass for six yards in the Niners' first two games. He played just 51 percent of the offensive snaps through Week 2. Aiyuk finished the season strong, playing at least 90 percent of the offensive snaps in each game starting in Week 9. He amassed 43 receptions for 685 yards and four touchdowns during that span. Can Aiyuk have a Samuel-like breakout season in his third year—minus the running back snaps. One thousand, four hundred five of Samuel's 1,770 all-purpose yards came as a receiver. In 2021,
