The 49ers are keeping left tackle Trent Williams.

Williams who arrived in a trade from Washington last year and started 14 games, has re-signed with San Francisco.

In the wee hours of Wednesday morning, Williams posted an Instagram video of himself celebrating the contract. Dianna Russini of ESPN reported that it’s a six-year contract that includes a $30.1 million signing bonus.

The 32 year-old Williams was a first-round pick of Washington in 2010 and played his entire career there until growing disgruntled with the franchise, which he accused of misdiagnosing a medical condition. Williams did not play at all in 2019 and insisted he would never play for Washington again, and that precipitated the trade to San Francisco. The 49ers obviously liked what they got from Williams last year, and now he is poised to be their starting left tackle for years to come.

    He’s already said the Niners are his first choice. He’s never tested free agency so he wants to his value. The Niners aren’t going to let him go. The Niners are in the top 10 in cap space and are reworking more deals to create more. 4 years 80 million with 62 million guaranteed would be a good bet. He will stay in San Fran.


    There is no way he is going to get close to $62 million guaranteed from anyone
    I posted that a few days ago. Looks like I was right. Trent is the highest rated LT in the league. He’s one of those guys who can play deep into his 30s like Andrew Whitworth, only better. Welcome back, Trent!

  2. Should have signed with New England. Turned down a chance for greatness. Could have blocked for a hall of famer!

  3. No way. He’s an absolute beast when healthy, but that’s become rare. A lot to shell out for a player that will be lucky if he plays more than half a season. He is constantly getting nicked up, and he’s not getting any younger.

    Still without a winning QB
    Jimmy G is 24-9 as a starter. Seems like a winning qb to me.

  5. New England traded for Trent Brown, after they let him leave as a free agent after their last Super Bowl win. Brown was traded by Frisco to New England for next to nothing He agreed to restructure his contract before New England traded for him with Vegas.

    Aka, testing the market didn’t work out.

    Did you not read what PFT and others reported, that the Niners had to fend off the Chiefs, Colts and Bears for Williams?

    Um, Jimmy G is 24-9 as a starter at SF, and has taken his team to the Super Bowl.WHEN he’s healthy (big when), he is a solid QB. Is he Mahomes? No. Brady? Heck no. But he’s darn good. They’ve re-signed Williams and are signing Alex Mack to keep Jimmy upright. That’s what good make-things-happen teams do — not alienate their QB, let the O-line suck and then allow their disgruntled QB to “release a list of teams he’d accept a trade to,” although he says he doesn’t want a trade.

    Give me a break.

    He’s 24-9 (including the post-season) as a starter. Find a new team and different argument

  8. 49ers will be a long shot to win the Super Bowl according to oddsmakers and Jimmy G. bashers. That means I have a good chance of winning a big pot of money if I just make a small bet.

    Guys, no need to get too excited. They’re blocking for Jimmy G. lol.

    17 17 Rate This
    Yeah, 49ers only going to the Super Bowl then, lol.

  10. A six-year contract for someone who will be 33 before the season starts? It’s not a stretch to say his best years are probably behind him. I think they’ll regret this contract.

  11. Orlando Brown saw the obscene amount of money and immediately tweeted: “I AM A LEFT TACKLE!!!!”

  12. Teams are willing to pay a lot of money to guy that protect their quarterback’s blind side.

  13. Trent Williams got the big contract that he wanted, now it’s time for him to go out and earn that money.
