Chiefs agree to trade Dee Ford to 49ers

The Kansas City Chiefs have reached an agreement to send outside linebacker Dee Ford to the San Francisco 49ers for a second-round pick in the 2020 National Football League draft, a source tells Yahoo Sports. The Chiefs then tied the score at 31-31 with a field goal in the final seconds of regulation, but we all know how that one ultimately worked out.

It looks like another defensive move is in the works for the Kansas City Chiefs. ESPN is reporting the deal could be worth $87.5 million over five seasons. Ford was rated as the top edge rusher by Pro Football Focus past year, and you don't let that kind of talent go voluntarily. On multiple occasions, a sack that forced a fumble or a hurry that led to an interception might have been all that separated the Niners from victory. Looking back at Smith's all-too-brief time as a Niner is cause for disappointment now but was transformative at the time as he piled up 42 sacks in his first 43 games.

In terms of average annual value (AAV), his new reported deal puts him right in line with other edge rushers that have reportedly reached agreements in free agency, and you could certainly make the case Ford is the best of the bunch.

The team also recently released linebacker Justin Houston, freeing up $21.1 million in their salary cap.

Two Iraqi boys who came out with her, pretending to be her brothers, said many fighters remained dug into tunnels in Baghouz. Included in those fleeing the area are Yazidi men and women who have been held hostage by the militant group for years.

Ford was drafted 23rd overall in 2014 and combined for 5.5 sacks in his first two seasons. That's not just a price you pay every single time.

The 27-year-old represents a major upgrade for a 49ers defensive front in search of edge-rush talent to complement its impressive crop of players on the interior.

Ford will reportedly receive a significant contract extension from the 49ers. It has always been believed that the 49ers would select an edge rusher with the No. 2 overall pick.
