The San Francisco 49ers have traded CB Kenneth Acker, who has seen his preseason playing time limited by the emergence of other young corners, to the Kansas City Chiefs for a seventh-round draft pick in 2018, per Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. News of the compensation comes from Adam Schefter of ESPN.



Acker started 13 games for the 49ers last season, but has plummeted within the depth chart this offseason. While he played in Friday night's loss to the Green Bay Packers, he only appeared on special teams. Acker was drafted by the 49ers out of Southern Methodist in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

On Wednesday, the Buffalo Bills made headlines with a blockbuster trade that sent wide receiver Stefon Diggs to the Houston Texans. Diggs has been highly productive throughout his lengthy career, surpassing 1,000 receiving yards in six consecutive seasons. Although Diggs' 2023 campaign was his least productive since 2019, the veteran receiver still amassed 1,183 receiving yards and eight touchdowns last season. The Bills received a 2025 second-round draft pick in exchange for Diggs while shipping a 2024 sixth-round pick and a 2025 fifth-round pick to the Texans. Meanwhile, the San Francisco 49ers are negotiating a contract extension for wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk.

The San Francisco 49ers are likely hoping that a top offensive lineman drops to them at No. 31 in the first round of this month's draft. Fans would like to see the team add someone to compete with Colton McKivitz for the right tackle spot and potentially take over for Trent Williams when the future Hall of Famer decides to retire. Having two studs bookending the offensive line would go a long way in protecting franchise quarterback Brock Purdy. While tackle may be the first-round target, depending on how the first 30 selections play out, San Francisco might have to trade up to get a genuinely impactful

NFL exec: Draft could impact 49ers' contract talks with Brandon Aiyuk

Last week, San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch disclosed that the team was actively negotiating with wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk to reach a contract extension. However, a report from Mike Garafolo of NFL Network indicated that the two parties were "not close" to reaching an agreement. No one expects a deal to get done before the NFL Draft, which kicks off later this month. Historically, this 49ers' front office has tended to secure significant contract extensions later in the offseason, closer to training camp. That was the case with tight end George Kittle in 2020, linebacker Fred Warner in 2021, and wide receiver Deebo Samuel in 2022. Last year, defensive end Nick Bosa didn't ink

Detroit Lions tight end Brock Wright will not be joining the San Francisco 49ers after all. Last Friday, the 49ers signed Wright to an offer sheet, allowing the Lions to match the offer.
