According to sources, LT Trent Williams will re-sign with the San Francisco 49ers on a new six-year, $138M deal - making him the highest-paid offensive lineman in history.
Williams played 14 games for the Niners last year and finished with a strong 91.9 PFF rating. The Niners' run game continues to be the bedrock of their offense, and locking up the 10-year veteran was necessary to maintain their dominant front. On the new deal, Williams receives a $55.1M guaranteed contract which includes a hefty $30.1M signing bonus. The best offensive lineman in free agency is officially off-the-market.
Brad Biggs with the Chicago Tribune is reporting that the Bears have inquired on a deal to sign superstar tackle Trent Williams.
Williams is believed to be the top free agent lineman in the class, even at 32 years old. Reports are that he would command somewhere around $20M. The Bears would likely have to shuffle some cap money around to make room for Williams if they intended to pursue him.
San Francisco 49ers LT Trent Williams is reportedly interested in staying with the team in 2021, however, he wants fair value.
The 49ers have reportedly made several offers to Williams, who they signed during the 2020 season after he sat out a couple of games for Washington to start the year. After playing 14 games for the 49ers in 2020, Williams is reportedly interested in staying with the team but would like to be compensated fairly for his services. The 6'5, 320-pound left tackle is in his 11th season in the league and will be immensely valuable if the 49ers wind up drafting a young quarterback prospect to replace QB Jimmy Garoppolo.
The 49ers activated LT Trent Williams from the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson, and Richard Sherman were all activated off IR. Perhaps the 49ers are finally getting healthy ahead of a big Week 12 matchup with the Rams.
49ers' LT Trent Williams has been placed on the NFL's Reserve/COVID-19 list.
Like his teammate Aiyuk, this is also Williams' second stint on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. Details have not yet emerged as to whether he has tested positive or is considered a close contact. The 49ers are on bye this week, giving Williams plenty of time to be activated for Week 12. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide details as they become available.
