Fantasy Impact:

This deal makes Warner the highest-paid inside linebacker in the NFL. The 24-year-old all-pro is a dynamic and versatile linebacker that you can build your defence around. He was drafted in the third round as a developmental player, but his work ethic and football mind allowed him to excel from day one. It's an easy decision to give this deal to Warner, who looks to help the 49ers remain a top defence after the departure of DC Robert Saleh.
