49ers trading 2020 2nd-round pick for Chiefs LB Dee Ford

49ers trading 2020 2nd-round pick for Chiefs LB Dee Ford

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.

For the 49ers, adding a premium edge rusher - or two - has always been at the top of their offseason shopping list.

Despite what took place in the AFC Championship against the New England Patriots, Ford has been a key member on defense for the Kansas City Chiefs over the last five years, and it was great to see him finally earn his first trip to the Pro Bowl during the 2018 season.

The 49ers were reportedly one of two teams interested in Ford, according to an earlier report by Rapoport. In five seasons in KC, Ford had 30.5 sacks and 136 total tackles. But after the Chiefs made that move, it was reported the team did so with the intention of trading him. His best year was the 2018 season, when he recorded 55 tackles and 13 sacks.

Tottenham's wobble is a conundrum Mauricio Pochettino must solve as he fights to keep his side in the top four. Huddersfield and Fulham can probably begin planning for life back in the Championship next season.

The 49ers also use a 4-3 defense, and it isn't clear where they plan to play Ford.

The Chiefs are expected to sign former Cowboys linebacker Damien Wilson to a two-year, $5.6 million deal and former Houston Texans safety Tryann Mathieu to sign a three-year, $42 million contract. He played in a 4-3 during his college career at Auburn.

They have reportedly sought a second-round pick in exchange for the 27-year-old.

Adding Ford shouldn't keep the 49ers from finding another edge rusher this offseason. "He's had some production and if he is here with us, I'll be excited to have him and be excited to work with him". Allen would fill a need (other edge rusher), but has a high bust potential and is not worth taking with the No. 2 pick.
