Trent Williams i San Francisco 49ers they reached a six-year, $ 138.06 million contract that would make him the highest paid offensive player in NFL history, his agency announced Wednesday morning.
The contract has guaranteed money in the amount of 55.1 million dollars, Williams’ agency Elite Loyalty Sports announced. The deal also includes a $ 30.1 million signing bonus, sources told ESPN’s Dianna Russini.
Williams ’deal comes after the heels of the 49s who re-signed the quarterback Kyle Juszczyk and a corner kick Jason Verrett. With the trio under their wing, the Niners are expected to continue the center for free agents Alex Mack, the source told Russini.
Williams, whose contract exceeds four years, has been extended by $ 92 million Green Bay Packers lineman David Bakhtiari in November he even tagged Mack in a post on Instagram announcing his return. San Francisco is expected to continue trying to keep more of its own free agents, including a nickel-plated corner K’Waun Williams.
Williams, widely considered the best free agent this season, which we previously discussed this week with Kansas City Chiefs i Chicago Bears, sources told ESPN to Adam Schefter.
But Kansas City signed Joe Thuney and Chicago signed Germain Ifedi, paving the way for Brown’s historic deal to return to San Francisco.
The 49ers treated the day for Williams on the third day of the draft for the NFL 2020, sending a selection for the fifth round and a selection for the third round by 2021. Washington Football Team.
After Williams joined the Niners, the team agreed to add a clause to his contract that would mean they can’t mark him this season. Williams continued to stabilize the left position in place of retired Joe Staley, starting 14 games while returning to his former Pro Bowl form.
Williams, who turns 33 in July, finished last season with the fourth-best block rate victory victory (93.6%) among offensive fights, according to the ESPN metric / NFL Next Gen Stats, trailing only Andrew Whitworth (94.2%), Duane Brown (94%) i Billy Turner (93.7%).
It all came about in Williams ’first season after spending all of 2019 involved in a dispute with Washington over resolving his injury problems and contracts.
At the end of the season, Williams continued to hope to re-sign with San Francisco, but also admitted he wanted to see what leading accessories could get on the open market, as players in his position of this caliber rarely get that far into a free agency.
“San Francisco would be the leading candidate,” Williams said in January. “So even if it gets to a free agency, it’s not going to be because I’m trying to go somewhere else. It could be simply because I want to see my value. It’s been 11 years in this league, and I haven’t seen the left franchise go on yet. open market.I think it would be interesting to see what [my] value holds. “
Retaining Williams has been the 49ers ’primary concern this season. Had they lost it, it would have meant a change in the seismic shift in their plans for a free agency and draft.
Instead, the Niners have protective protection for blind reels for another six years.
Since entering the league as the No. 4 overall pick in the 2010 draft, Williams has started 133 games, earning eight beds for the Pro Bowl and nodding to the second team for the All Pro in 2015. His eight appearances in the Pro Bowl are the most in the offensive league line line since 2012
Williams welcomed the 2019 season due to a rare form of cancer and a dispute over the treatment of his health and contract status in Washington.
