He earned it and plays it.
“49ers signed LB Fred Warner to a five-year extension through 2026.
It makes Warner the league’s highest-paid off-ball linebacker, with the extension valued at over $95 million, including over $40.5 million in guaranteed money. The $19 million-plus per year surpassed Bobby Wagner’s $18 million mark. And the Colts’ Darius Leonard is expected to be next in line for a huge deal. Warner has started all 48 games he’s appeared in since being taken with the 70th overall pick of the 2018 draft. Still just 24, Warner was a first-team All-Pro last season.”July 21, 2021 at 10:24 am #10881
I think they probably learned from letting defo go that you don’t let a playmaker and guy that plays hard all the time go. The guy is the most reliable player on the team and I’d argue that because of that he’s the best player on the team. I’m very happy they got a deal done.July 21, 2021 at 10:25 am #10882
The future is quite bright for this team. If Lance lives up to his potential we’ve got him on his rookie deal for 3-4 years. That gives us a ton of flexibility.July 21, 2021 at 10:38 am #10883WisemanParticipant
Definitely awesome to get him locked up. What is left with the cap for this year now I wonder.July 21, 2021 at 11:09 am #10884
They still need to get Lance signed but they likely kick the can down the road on this contract. Jimmy and Dee Ford coming off the books in the coming years will help offset that I think. They should think about restructuring Armstead too.July 22, 2021 at 1:54 am #10887PhDParticipant

Especially when they should have kept him and dumped Armstead instead.July 23, 2021 at 9:51 am #10895EricksonKeymaster
That’s a shit ton of money. I have no issues with amount. Just crazy seeing three players on 49ers currently highest paid at positionJuly 23, 2021 at 11:37 am #10899NortyFinerParticipant
Good deal. Hopefully we learned from the terrible deal of letting Buckner go for broke ass Dee Ford.
