by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis re-signed with the 49ers on Tuesday,Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The 49ers traded with the Jets for Willis back in October and now the defensive end has solidified the Bay Area as his home for the immediate future. In seven games with the 49ers, Willis recorded 13 tackles (seven solo) and 2.5 sacks across 183 snaps. He was sidelined with COVID-19 issues and an ankle injury during the season as well.

49ers' Jordan Willis: Activated by 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers activated Willis from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

Wednesday brought good news for the 49ers, as both Willis and D.J. Jones were activated after missing last week's win over the Rams. Now that he's been cleared to return to the team, expect Willis to return to his usual depth defensive line role for Week 13, as he's yet to top 40 percent of defensive snaps in a game this season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Willis and D.J. Jones were both added to the list Sunday, bringing the team total to nine players. San Francisco appears to be dealing with an outbreak on its bye week, and Willis' status for the team's Week 12 clash against the Rams is uncertain at this time.

49ers' Jordan Willis: Trade to San Francisco official
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets officially traded Willis and a 2021 seventh-round pick to the 49ers on Tuesday in exchange for a 2022 sixth-round pick.

Tom Pelissero of NFL Network first reported that the two sides agreed on a trade Oct. 21, but the deal wasn't finalized until nearly a week later. Willis was inactive for the Jets' loss to the Bills over the weekend as a result, but he should be eligible to contribute for the 49ers in the club's Week 9 matchup with the Seahawks. With the 49ers currently stashing three defensive ends on injured reserve, Willis will provide some much-needed depth on the edge.

49ers' Jordan Willis: Traded to Bay Area
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis was traded along with a 2021 seventh-round pick to the 49ers via the Jets on Wednesday in exchange for a 2022 sixth-round pick, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

The 25-year-old has seen action in just two games this season with the Jets, as he's battled an ankle injury. Between the two games, Willis has logged 46 total defensive snaps but no tackles. It's likely that he'll assume more of a rotational role in the defense with the 49ers going forward.

Jets' Jordan Willis: Won't play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis (ankle) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Broncos, Randy Lange of the Jets' official site reports.

Willis hasn't resumed practicing since suffering an ankle injury Week 3. Frankie Luvu stands to handle increased defensive snaps as long as Willis is unable to go.

Jets' Jordan Willis: Unlikely to play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis has been unable to practice since suffering an ankle injury in Sunday's loss to the Colts. If he indeed sits out, expect Frankie Luvu to enjoy an uptick in usage Thursday.

Jets' Jordan Willis: Injures ankle Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Colts due to an ankle injury.

Willis' ankle injury robs the Jets of a rotational player at linebacker, in addition to depth at defensive end. Given that the Jets are already facing a 20-plus point deficit in the fourth quarter, the team may opt to be cautious with Willis and guarantee avoiding any setbacks.

Jets' Jordan Willis: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis (knee) was a full participant for Wednesday's practice.

Willis missed a majority of training camp due to the knee injury but appears ready for Week 1 against Buffalo. Now healthy, the Kansas State product is expected to handle more of a depth role at defensive end and linebacker for the Jets in 2020.

Jets' Jordan Willis: Leaves practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis left practice Thursday with a knee injury, Brian Costello of The New York Post reports.

The severity of the injury remains unknown, so look for more updates to come in the next couple days. The defensive end is competing for a depth role on the defensive line after playing in nine games with the Jets last season, recording seven tackles, one sack and a forced fumble in the process.

Jets' Jordan Willis: Joins new squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis was claimed off waivers by the Jets on Wednesday.

Jordan Willis: Let go by Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals waived Willis on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

The team's 2017 third-round pick never lived up to expectations -- he made 45 tackles and two sacks in two seasons -- so they cut him. If Willis clears waivers, he'll be free to sign with any team.

Bengals' Jordan Willis: Three preseason sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willis notched his third preseason sack Sunday against the Redskins, drawing the attention of teammate Vontaze Burfict, the Bengals' official site reports. "They come off the edge, they don't even think about it," Burfict raved. "Just go after it. They're young, hungry, and fast. Jordan (Willis) is going to be somebody to reckon with. He comes off the edge fast."

Burfict also praised teammates Carl Lawson and Chris Smith in the context of that quote. Willis, a third-round pick from Kansas State, had the quickest 40-yard dash among DL at the combine in 4.53 seconds. The Bengals emphasized getting more speed on the defensive line, with positive results so far.

Bengals' Jordan Willis: Falls to Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals selected Willis in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 73rd overall.

This looks like a steal for Cincinnati. Willis (6-foot-4, 255 pounds) was very productive at Kansas State with 21 sacks and 32.5 tackles for loss over the last two years, and he was incredible at the Combine. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.53 seconds while posting a 39-inch vertical, 125-inch broad jump and 6.85-second three-cone drill. There's no reason to not project Willis into the starting lineup by 2018.
