What are the 49ers’ options at right guard next season?

What are the 49ers’ options at right guard next season?

Photo by Fred Kfoury III/Icon Sportswire via Head coach Kyle Shanahan was forced to play musical chairs with the position in 2020. One of the biggest weaknesses for the San Francisco 49ers during the 2020 season was the subpar play of the interior offensive line. The unit underwent several changes during the 2019 offseason. Stalwart left tackle Joe Staley retired and was replaced by All-Pro Trent Williams. Center Weston Richburg never returned after suffering a severe leg injury in Week 14 of the 2019 campaign and his backup, Ben Garland, had a calf injury that kept...

Photo by Harry How/ Trent Williams is an obvious candidate, but we took a look at four free agents outside of the Niners building ESPN Insider released their top 50 free agents for this upcoming free agency period, and two San Francisco 49ers made the list. Trent Williams was always going to be closer to the top, but seeing the Niners star left tackle ranked at No. 2 is even more of a reason for the team to retain their star tackle: 2.

Photo by Michael Zagaris/San Francisco 49ers/ Your daily San Francisco 49ers links for Sunday, January 17, 2021 I know he was fully healthy, but, man, Jared Goff was brutal against the Packers. It was fitting that the game started with a poor play by Goff and finished with the same. Thankfully, for the 49ers, Los Angeles is stuck Goff. The 49ers Should Not Re-Sign Trent Williams Sounds like Williams wants to prove a point to his doubters, whoever they might be. Sounds like he wants money more than he wants to win a Super Bowl. So one way or another, he will become the...

PFF predicts Trent Williams’ next contract with 49ers

PFF predicts Trent Williams’ next contract with 49ers

Photo by Michael Zagaris/San Francisco 49ers/ The proposed deal would make Williams the third-highest paid left tackle in the NFL. It’s going to be a busy offseason for the San Francisco 49ers. The team could see multiple coaches and executives leave for other jobs, plus the Niners have 27 players who come become unrestricted free agents. The biggest priority for general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan is to re-sign left tackle Trent Williams. The 32-year-old was the best offensive players for the 49ers in a injury-ravaged 2020 season. Williams —...

Photo by MSA/Icon Sportswire via Your daily San Francisco 49ers links for Wednesday, January 13, 2021  Monday was a busy day for the 49ers as Robert Saleh and Adam Peters made it to the next round for their respective interviews and Martin Mayhew received a request to interview for Washington Football’s GM job. With the Colts' left tackle retiring, some also fear that the 49ers may lose Trent Williams to Indianapolis. That speculation may be premature, but Williams did say he wondered what his market would look like during his exit interview. Why the 49ers Must Not...

He’s been a busy man. I still think he ends up with the Lions. Is there a franchise that you want to see Saleh go to? A Deshaun Watson 49ers trade? Here’s how John Lynch reacted to similar situations Lynch has not been afraid to make gargantuan offers when premier players at positions of need become available.

49ers reportedly had ‘extensive discussions’ with Trent Williams about new contract

Photo by Ralph Freso/ ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler says the two parties talked about a new deal during the final week of the season.

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reports that the Niners had talks with veteran left tackle Trent Williams about a new contract last week. #49ers and Pro Bowl LT Trent Williams had extensive discussions last week on a contract extension, per sources. Doing something before Week 17 would have helped SF's salary cap. It didn't happen, and an elite...

Photo by Ralph Freso/ Williams explained how it’s not always about the bottom line Trent Williams coming back to the 49ers next season feels as close to inevitable as any unrestricted free agent on San Francisco’s roster. He’s gone out of his way to mention that he wants to return to the Bay Area next year, and his comments didn’t change on Monday: “Honestly, it don’t matter to me. Regardless, San Francisco would be the lead candidate, so whether it’s now or whether it is in free agency, a team has to convince me it’s better there than it will be here....

Seahawks beat 49ers 26-23 in the season finale

Photo by Christian Petersen/ There were no touchdowns during the first three quarters. The 49ers' offense was always going to struggle against the Seahawks without Trent Williams and Brandon Aiyuk. C.J. Beathard went 2-for-5 for six yards through the first quarter and looked a bit shaky in the pocket. Thankfully, aside from a long gain on a coverage bust from Azeez A-Shaair, the defense continued its stellar play. After the first quarter, the Seahawks were up 3-0. After their third punt, Seattle drove the field 12 plays for 58 yards. That drive was kickstarted by a...

Still, injuries, namely high-ankle sprains, ended the Niners' playoff hopes months ago and have been nagging ever since. San Francisco will be without Brandon Aiyuk and Trent Williams as both players are out with injury. The team will also be without a handful of other starters against their rival Seahawks.
