    49ers' Dee Ford: Trade in place pending new contract

    The Chiefs have a deal in place to trade Dee Ford to the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for a 2020 second-round pick, contingent upon a contract extension, Albert Breer of reports.The Chiefs placed the franchise tag on Ford, but Ford signaled he wanted a long-term deal. He'll have the opportunity to negotiate for that with the 49ers. Those talks are expected to work out, but if they fell through Ford would return to the Chiefs. He's seeking long-term security in a new deal, and he deserves it after posting a double-digit sack total in two of the last three seasons. Ford will be the top edge rusher on the 49ers roster, and he'll likely start opposite Solomon Thomas on the defensive line.

    Chiefs' Dee Ford: Will receive franchise tag

    Dee Ford is expected to receive the franchise tag Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.It's worth pointing out the Kansas City Chiefs will still entertain trade offers for their star pass rusher, particularly with the switch to a 4-3 defense, but it seemed likely Ford was destined for the franchise tag after recording 13 sacks in 2018, the second time he's posted double-digit sacks in the last three years. The 2014 first-round pick would have been one of the premier pass rushers available on the open market, so it's possible the Chiefs could find a willing trade partner for the 27-year-old.

    Chiefs' Dee Ford: Wants to stay in KC

    Dee Ford can become a free agent this offseason but said he would love to stay in Kansas City, Lynn Worthy of the Kansas City Star.Ford's 2018 season may be best remembered for his crucial offsides penalty in the AFC Championship Game, but he did play a key role in helping the Kansas City Chiefs get that far, bouncing back from an injury-marred 2017 campaign to pile up 55 tackles (42 solo), 13 sacks and seven forced fumbles in 16 regular-season games. The 2014 first-round pick is a reasonable candidate to receive the franchise tag if the two sides can't work out a long-term contract before the start of the new league year.

    Chiefs' Dee Ford: Returns to form in 2018

    Dee Ford racked up a career-high 13 sacks and 55 tackles (42 solo) during the 2018 season.It shouldn't come as a surprise that Ford's 1,025 defensive snaps also mark a career-best total. Ford flashed the talent that made him a 2014 first-round pick in 2016 with 10 sacks, but he was limited to just six games in 2017 because of a back injury. Still just 27 and slated to hit the open market, Ford should find plenty of teams knocking at the door if he doesn't sign a contract extension prior to free agency.
