Just last week, the Chiefs put a franchise tag on Ford, though reports indicated a deal was in the works.

When this deal becomes official - which can not occur until after 3 p.m. CT Wednesday at the earliest - Ford's contract is expected to be for five years and $87.5 million, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson.

The Chiefs started this defensive rebuild a year ago, when they traded up in the second round to draft defensive end Breeland Speaks.

Ford has 30.5 career sacks in five seasons, all with the Chiefs, including a personal-best in 2018, when he attained career firsts by starting all 16 regular-season games and being selected to the Pro Bowl.

As a result of this trade, the Chiefs now have an extra $15.4 million freed up in cap space by trading Ford.

LT Brown to leave Pats for Raiders
Prior to 2018, he rushed for more than 1,200 yards in three of the past four seasons and is one of the NFL's most versatile backs. The Steelers on Saturday reportedly traded the superstar wideout to the Oakland Raiders for two draft picks.

Ford entered the NFL as the Chiefs first round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. That's a pretty good sign of how much the Niners value having an edge rusher like Ford in the lineup and he told Terez Paylor of Yahoo Sports that the team made that clear to him verbally as well. San Francisco has found its coveted edge defender in former Kansas City Chiefs star Dee Ford. Obviously San Francisco believes Ford won't have a problem adjusting from a 3-4 defense. With Ford moving from a 3-4 to a 4-3 defense, both could be possibilities.

With pass rush high on the Niners' needs for the offseason, this new signing should help ease the pressure off general manager John Lynch, in this area at least. The 49ers could still use Solomon Thomas, who is good against the run, and Malcolm Smith at those spots.

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. If they have another disappointing season in 2019, this could become a high draft pick for K.C.

That has the potential to be a premier pass rushing foursome which could be swing the team's historic takeaway numbers in the other direction.

According to Breer, the Chiefs will receive the 49ers' 2020 second-round draft pick in return.
