Chiefs' Dee Ford: Earns massive salary with Niners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers have an agreement in place to sign Ford to a five-year, $87.5 million contract when the league year begins Wednesday, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

The Chiefs traded Ford to the 49ers in exchange for a 2020 second-round pick, and the deal was contingent on a long-term contract being figured out. That's in place now, as Ford will earn a whopping $17.5 million per year. Ford struggled with injuries in the 2017 season, but he recorded double-digit sacks in his last two healthy campaigns. He'll immediately be the 49ers' top pass rusher.

49ers' Dee Ford: Trade in place pending new contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs have a deal in place to trade Ford to the 49ers in exchange for a 2020 second-round pick, contingent upon a contract extension, Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com 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: Handed franchise tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs officially extended the franchise tag to Ford on Monday, Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com reports.

With less than 24 hours remaining before Tuesday's 4 p.m. ET deadline, Ford's fate in the near term is known. He'll have until July 15 to sign the tag, while the Chiefs and his representation can negotiate a long-term contract in the meantime. Ford has tended to the occasional injury in his five-year career, but with two campaigns of double-digit sacks in the last three, he's earned the right for a substantial increase in salary.

Chiefs' Dee Ford: Will receive franchise tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford is expected to receive the franchise tag Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

It's worth pointing out the 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 former first-round pick would have been one of the premiere 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.
