49ers' Arik Armstead: Re-ups with 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers and Armstead agreed to a five-year contract Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Armstead didn't receive the franchise tag from the 49ers, but with the potential to earn up to $85 million over the course of the deal, he can match the current valuation ($17 million per year) of that tag if he gets every incentive. In any case, he'll return to a formidable 49ers defensive front, looking to build upon his 10-sack outburst opposite 2019 Defensive Rookie of the Year Nick Bosa.

49ers' Arik Armstead: Doesn't get tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead didn't receive a franchise tag, but he's discussing a contract to stay with the 49ers, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The 2015 first-round pick enjoyed a breakout season in 2019, with his 10 sacks more than doubling his previous career total. The 49ers have enough pass-rushing talent to get by fine without Armstead, but that doesn't mean they'll simply accept losing him.

49ers' Arik Armstead: Open to franchise tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead said Wednesday that he would be open to receiving the 49ers' franchise tag during the offseason, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. "I would love being here," Armstead said. "Trying to go back to the Super Bowl, so however that is seen or has to get done, it's not really my decision what they want to do with me."

The 2015 first-round pick's rookie contract will expire in March, so he's set to become an unrestricted free agent. Armstead was a fixture on the 49ers' touted defensive front in 2019, as he averaged 49 defensive snaps per game and accrued career highs in tackles (54) and sacks (10) while starting opposite of rookie Nick Bosa. Per OvertheCap.com, Armstead's franchise tag would cost the team approximately $19.32 million against the salary cap.

49ers' Arik Armstead: Defenses pass in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead made four solo tackles and broke up a pass in Saturday's 34-31 win over the Rams.

That's back-to-back games with a pass breakup for Armstead after not recording a single one in the season's first 14 games. Each tackle he makes is a new career high, and he currently has 53 (32 solo).

49ers' Arik Armstead: Posts just three tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead made three tackles (two solo) and broke up a pass in Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

Armstead's sack drought reached three games with the conclusion of this contest. The pass breakup was his first of the year, however.

49ers' Arik Armstead: Quiet showing Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead recorded four tackles (three solo) in Sunday's 48-46 win over the Saints.

The 26-year-old moved his season tackle total to 46 (26 solo) through the first 13 games. Armstead's value lies in getting to the quarterback with 10 sacks this season, however, he's failed to do so in the past two games. He and the rest of the defense will look to get back on track against a banged up Atlanta offensive line.

49ers' Arik Armstead: Records two sacks in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead made five tackles (two solo) and two sacks in Sunday's 37-8 win over the Packers.

Armstead has been getting to the quarterback at a torrid pace of late and now has 4.5 sacks over his last three efforts. On the season, he is up to 10 sacks and 38 tackles (22 solo).

49ers' Arik Armstead: Notches another sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead notched two tackles and one sack during Sunday's 36-26 victory over the Cardinals.

Armstead was a factor all night and seemed to be near the quarterback fairly often. His biggest play came with the 49ers down three with three minutes to go, notching a huge third-down sack of Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray to get San Francisco the ball back. The Oregon product is now up to eight sacks on the year and will take his 3.3-tackle-per-game average into a Week 12 showdown with Green Bay.

49ers' Arik Armstead: Forces huge fumble in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead made three tackles (two solo), 1.5 sacks and forced a fumble in Monday's loss to Seattle.

After the 49ers had fallen behind by 11, Armstead totally reversed the game's momentum with an aided strip-sack of Russell Wilson in the fourth quarter, which promptly became a fumble-six. The 25-year-old would add another sack in overtime for good measure and is up to seven total on the year.

49ers' Arik Armstead: Able to clear throat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead (throat) was able to return in the second quarter of Thursday's game against the Cardinals, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Armstead was finally able to overcome a strange ailment, as he previously remained on the sideline because it felt as if something was stuck in his throat. He's apparently been able to clear his throat and is now back in the game.

49ers' Arik Armstead: Questionable return due to throat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead's injury has been clarified as a throat injury, and his return to Thursday's game against the Cardinals is officially questionable, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Armstead feels as if he has something stuck in this throat, and that has kept him on the sidelines since the first quarter.

49ers' Arik Armstead: Picks up injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead picked up an undisclosed injury in the first quarter of Thursday's game against Arizona, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Armstead was being looked at by the medical staff on the sideline and was unable to return for the defense's next series. His return should be viewed as questionable at this time.

49ers' Arik Armstead: Puts up two sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead tallied three solo tackles and two sacks in Sunday's 51-13 win over the Panthers.

The addition of Nick Bosa has helped take opposing offenses' focus off Armstead, allowing him to flourish as a pass rusher. Through seven games, Armstead already has a career-high 5.5 sacks, and the former first-round pick also has 26 tackles in tow. The Bosa-Armstead tandem will look to torment Kyler Murray in Thursday's matchup.

49ers' Arik Armstead: Returns to sack column
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead had three tackles (two solo) and a sack in Sunday's 9-0 win at Washington.

Armstead struggled through much of his first four seasons in San Francisco, but he's been productive through the first six games this year. The 2015 first-round pick has 23 tackles (13 solo) and has already set a career high with 3.5 sacks.

49ers' Arik Armstead: Gets another sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead tallied three tackles (two solo) and one sack during Sunday's win over the Bengals.

Armstead has recorded a sack in two consecutive games and has already nearly matched his 2018 total of three sacks. He'll work to keep his streak going versus the Steelers in Week 3.

49ers' Arik Armstead: Tallies five tackles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead recorded five total tackles and a sack in Sunday's 31-17 victory over the Buccaneers.

Armstead was present for 47 defensive snaps (67 percent) and 11 special-teams snaps (44 percent). In training camp, it seemed that the 2015 first-round pick could lose reps to Solomon Thomas, but Armstead saw 42 more snaps between defense and special teams than Thomas did Sunday. Armstead recorded 48 total tackles and three sacks over 16 games in 2018.

49ers' Arik Armstead: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead (calf) returned to practice in full Tuesday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Armstead missed the 49ers' first preseason contest but he appears on track to make his 2019 debut against the Broncos on Monday. The 25-year-old is currently competing with Solomon Thomas for an early down role after the team acquired two outside threats in Dee Ford and Nick Bosa this past offseason.

49ers' Arik Armstead: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead did not practice Wednesday due to a calf injury, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Branch appears primed for a rotational role in San Francisco's defensive end group when healthy, behind Nick Bosa and Dee Ford. A timetable for his return remains undisclosed, making it possible that the 2015 first-round pick could miss some preseason action.

49ers' Arik Armstead: Working with starters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armstead operated as a starter during offseason workouts, but that could change when Nick Bosa (hamstring) returns from injury, Grant Cohn of the Press Democrat reports.

Armstead has reportedly been operating as the starting weak-side defensive end in team drills this spring. We're not sure that would be the case with Bosa in the mix, and -- with Soloman Thomas an DeForest Buckner holding down the interior -- Armstead seems the most likely to take a backseat on a line that also features expensive offseason addition, Dee Ford. It's possible the team could find a way to get all of them on the field in certain scenarios, but Armstead currently seems unlikely to make a huge statistical impact given the current state of the roster. In 16 games last season, Armstead registered 48 tackles and three sacks.

49ers' Arik Armstead: Sticks with 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers plan to keep Armstead (hand) on the roster for 2019, Chris Biderman of The Sacramento Bee reports.

The team picked up Armstead's fifth-year option for 2019 last April, but his $9 million salary doesn't become guaranteed until the start of the new league year in March. The 25-year-old was limited to only 14 games between 2016 and 2017, but he played in all 16 games last season with career highs in tackles (48) and sacks (three).
