49ers sign ex-CB Charvarius Ward to 3-year deal

The 49ers JC Jackson and Carlton Davis “missed” on Monday. However, there were some reports that the team was interested in Stephon Gilmore. The Niners signed a three-year deal with former chiefs CB Charvarius Ward on Monday night.

The terminology is unclear, as Ian Rapoport and Adam Scheffer have different numbers:

Either way, the 49ers have their own CB1. Ward, who turns 26 in May, allowed a 44% completion last year, often following the other team’s best wide receiver. He’s a 6’1″, 200-pound pressure cornerer with enough speed to carry receivers vertically.

All three players on the list are under 26, with Emmanuel Mosley (25) and Ambri Thomas (22) giving the team a youthful core in one of the most important positions in the NFL.

This is the biggest corner deal since Richard Sherman paid $10 million per season in 2018.

Ward has been linked to the 49ers who go to 2 weeks now. We’ll get a little more in-depth about Ward’s signature on Tuesday. For now, it’s the Niners’ big investment during free agency. Once the contract details are revealed, we will get them as well.

I’ll get a video of all of Ward’s goals from the 2021 season tomorrow, so you can be the judge on him.

Ward’s signing would likely unpick the companies that the 49ers would have received for DJ Jones.

Ward’s signature on Gilmore indicates that San Francisco is thinking long-term, which is the right thing to do given that they’re building around Lance. Now, it’s up to Ward to continue moving forward and stick to his contract.
