Chiefs agree to trade Dee Ford to 49ers

According to a report by Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer, the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers have agreed to parameters on a trade deal for outside linebacker Dee Ford.

Sounds like the #49ers will give Dee Ford a multi-year deal once the trade becomes official in the line of 5 years/$87.5M, per source. The pass-rushing linebacker will bring the Chiefs a 2020 second-round pick, according to multiple reports.

Ford, 28, was amenable to playing 2019 on the franchise tag, but Kansas City is shifting away from the 3-4 defensive scheme it used under former defensive coordinator Bob Sutton, who was sacked at the end of the season after leading the NFL's 31st-ranked defense.

Kansas City will reportedly receive a 2020 second-round pick in return for the star pass-rusher, who received the franchise tag ahead of free agency this offseason. And it came a year removed from a back injury that required surgery and caused him to miss 10 games in 2017.

Anthony Barr reportedly spurns Jets to return to Minnesota Vikings
He was the second-best free agent linebacker on NFL .com's list of the 101 best free agents, behind only Minnesota's Barr. A healthy Mosley - who's missed only three games in five seasons - commanded more on the open market than Alexander.

Former Patriots wideout Danny Amendola to sign with Detroit Lions
The Bills now have defensive ends Jerry Hughes, Shaq Lawson, Trent Murphy and Eddie Yarborough under contract for the 2019 season. But despite a career-high 15 starts, his production in Miami did not reach the same level as his previous years in New England.

Brie Larson Surprises 'Captain Marvel' Moviegoers At New Jersey Theater
The film opened with Rs 15.18 crore, then Rs 16.79 crore on Saturday - taking the total collection to Rs 32.28 crore. All of which is to say: Captain Marvel and Wonder Woman box office performances don't necessarily compare well.

Ford, 27, recorded 13 sacks and 29 quarterback hits in 2018.

Ford would likely play SAM linebacker in the 49ers' base defense, then moved down to defensive end in sub packages. The Chiefs also saved $15 million in cap space by trading Ford, which they used towards safety Tyrann Mathieu, who signed for $42 million over three seasons. He played in a 4-3 during his college career at Auburn.

However, with Ford's ability to rush the passer, adding that kind of talent is clearly the priority for the 49ers. I think we're also looking for powerful players. Allen would fill a need (other edge rusher), but has a high bust potential and is not worth taking with the No. 2 pick.
