Williams, whose deal surpasses the four-year, $92 million augmentation given to Green Bay Packers lineman David Bakhtiari in November, even labeled Mack in an Instagram post declaring his return. San Francisco is additionally anticipated that continue should attempt to keep its very own greater amount free agents, including nickel cornerback K’Waun Williams.

Be that as it may, Kansas City signed Joe Thuney and Chicago marked Germain Ifedi, making ready for Brown’s historic deal to get back to San Francisco.

It may simply be because I want to see my value. It’s been 11 years in this league and I have yet to see a franchise left tackle go to the open market. I think it would be interesting to see what [my] value holds.”
Keeping Williams was the essential worry for the 49ers this offseason. Had they lost him, it would have implied a change a seismic shift in their arrangements with the expectation of complimentary office and the draft.
All things considered, the Niners have their bushwhack defender set up for six additional years.
Since entering the class as the No. 4 generally pick in the 2010 draft, Williams has begun 133 games, procuring eight Pro Bowl billets and a second-group All-Pro gesture in 2015. His eight Pro Bowl appearances are the most in the association for a hostile lineman since 2012.
