The 49ers are in trade talks with the Kansas City Chiefs surrounding franchise pass rusher Dee Ford, according to multiple reports.

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

The 49ers are adding to their defensive arsenal with the reported trade for Chiefs franchise player, Dee Ford as trade season in the National Football League continues to deliver eye-popping headlines.

A source told ESPN that Ford is expected to receive a multiyear deal in the range of five years and $87.5 million from the 49ers.

"Still kind of assessing that", Spagnuolo said in February when asked about Ford.

In terms of average annual value (AAV), his new reported deal puts him right in line with other edge rushers that have reportedly reached agreements in free agency, and you could certainly make the case Ford is the best of the bunch. He also forced a league-high seven fumbles. He accounted for 7.5 sacks and 78 quarterback pressures (second-most in NFL) for New England last season. After missing several games with injuries throughout the course of his career, Ford played all 16 weeks for the first time since his rookie season. That's not just a price you pay every single time.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - It was never a secret the San Francisco 49ers were ready and willing to throw resources - be it cash, draft picks or a combination of the two - at fixing what they view as the team's biggest weakness: an outside pass rush capable of closing out tight games.

Armed with the No. 2 pick in April's draft, the Niners could still be in prime position to land another difference-making edge rusher such as Ohio State's Nick Bosa.

Ford would likely play SAM linebacker in the 49ers' base defense, then moved down to defensive end in sub packages.
