The 49ers are in trade talks with the Kansas City Chiefs surrounding franchise pass rusher Dee Ford, according to multiple reports. The Chiefs then tied the score at 31-31 with a field goal in the final seconds of regulation, but we all know how that one ultimately worked out.
They have reportedly sought a second-round pick in exchange for the 27-year-old.
The Chiefs had already jettisoned Houston by releasing him days before trading Ford, so now the Chiefs are starting at a largely empty cupboard when it comes to proven pass rushers on the team.
A new long-term deal for Ford was reportedly a requirement to get the trade done, and San Francisco will lock him up with a five-year extension worth roughly $87.5 million, a source told NFL Network's James Palmer. Ford was rated as the top edge rusher by Pro Football Focus previous year, and you don't let that kind of talent go voluntarily.
To improve last season's 31st-ranked defense, the Chiefs, under the direction of general manager Brett Veach and coach Andy Reid, felt they needed to switch schemes and modify their personnel.

Ford was drafted 23rd overall in 2014 and combined for 5.5 sacks in his first two seasons.
After an excellent 2018 season with 13 sacks and 55 tackles, Ford has earned a payday.
The 49ers endured more than their fair share of injuries last season, and to some very crucial players early on like quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and running back Jerick McKinnon. That's not just a price you pay every single time.
The 49ers have been relatively quiet in free agency, but they're looking to make noise in the trade market.
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. San Francisco does have a tendency to play five men on the line of scrimmage on defense, so Ford could be a good fit in that package. They're going to be playing with a quick trigger and getting after it.
