But there are question marks.
Ford ended his best season with his least productive game. It's probably no coincidence it came during a contract year. He amassed 10.5 sacks and 14.5 tackles for a loss during his senior year. In five seasons in KC, Ford had 30.5 sacks and 136 total tackles.
In return for Ford, the Chiefs will nab a pick that will give them four top 100 picks in the 2020 National Football League draft. Last year, interior lineman DeForest Buckner became the first Niner to reach double-digit sacks since Smith in 2012, but Shanahan and Lynch have been searching for the outside complement to help a team that has lost 11 one-possession games over the past two seasons turn that tide.
Revised Brexit deal doesn’t undermine backstop: Irish PM
The opposition Labour Party has called for a General Election - and criticised Theresa May for allowing a free vote on no deal. Parliament's next step, in a vote Thursday, will be to seek a delay of that looming departure date.
The Chiefs had placed the franchise tag on Ford last week, with the intention of trying to trade him, as reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter.
The team entered the week with $66 million in cap space and likely had some $52 million to work with after agreeing to a deal with inside linebacker Kwon Alexander earlier in the week.
Kansas City's defensive scheme change from a 3-4 to a 4-3 was a key reason why the team shopped Ford. The one-year franchise tag for linebackers is worth $15,443,000 in 2019.
Michael Cohen's attorney sends letter clarifying pardon testimony
Cohen's decision in June 2018 to leave the Trump Joint Defense Agreement (the "JDA") and to tell the truth", Monico wrote. Representatives for Cummings, a Democrat, did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the letter.
The interesting thing about a deal to the 49ers, though, is San Francisco also runs a 4-3 defense. He played in a 4-3 during his college career at Auburn. An undersized defensive end didn't seem to be the right fit.
Wherever the 49ers decide to play Ford in their base defense, they certainly will play him at defensive end in their nickel defense during passing downs.
Adding Ford shouldn't keep the 49ers from finding another edge rusher this offseason. If the Arizona Cardinals use the No. 1 overall pick on a quarterback, the 49ers would have access to Ohio State's Nick Bosa, considered the draft's top prospect.
