Dee Ford is an outside linebacker for the Kansas City Chiefs of National Football League. He was drafted by the Chiefs in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He played college football at Auburn. He is a rising star of American football but he has been stalled by his injuries. 

Ford to be traded to Niners

The Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to trade Dee Ford to the San Francisco 49ers. He is expected to give by The Niners in the range of five years and $87.5 million. The deal won't be official until the new league year begins. The franchise tag was placed by Chief on Ford with the intention of trading him. Last season, he became the player the Chiefs had a vision when they drafted him out of Auburn in the first round in 2014. He has ended his best season with his least productive game. He was penalized for lining up offside on a play that resulted in an interception in the final minute of the fourth quarter in the AFC Championship game.  

How the Addition of Dee Ford Impacts the 49ers Pass Rush

The entire football world knew that the San Francisco 49ers were in the market for a pass rusher. That had been the case for several years running up until Wednesday afternoon. San Francisco has found its coveted edge defender in former Kansas City Chiefs star Dee Ford. The 49ers acquired Ford from the Chiefs for a 2020 second-round pick and promptly reworked a fresh five-year contract with their new playmaker. Kansas City had previously used the franchise tag on Ford, but reports around the league made it clear that they preferred to trade him. He made the Pro Bowl in 2018 after posting 13 sacks (seventh-most in the NFL). According to Pro Football Focus, Ford led all edge rushers with 78 pressures and a 91.0 overall grade last season. Kyle Shanahan said that the 49ers needed closers, and that’s what Ford provided for the Chiefs. Ford forced a league-high 10 turnovers due to pressure. By comparison, the 49ers forced just seven turnovers as a defense in 2018.
