Reports: 49ers reach 5-year extension with ILB Fred Warner

The San Francisco 49ers and All-Pro linebacker Fred Warner reached an agreement on a five-year extension, ESPN and NFL Network reported Wednesday.

The deal is worth $95 million with $40.5 million in guaranteed money, per the reports.

The deal makes him the highest-paid inside linebacker in the league in contract value and average annual salary, according to Spotrac. New York Jets ILB C.J. Mosley was No. 1 with $85 million in total value, and Seattle’s Bobby Wagner is now second behind Warner in AAV with $18 million.

Warner, 24, is entering the final year of his rookie contract. The extension keeps him under contract in San Francisco through the 2026 season.

Warner earned first team All-Pro honors and was named to the Pro Bowl after the 2020 season. He recorded 125 tackles to go with two interceptions, six passes defensed, a sack and seven quarterback hits. He also had a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries.

Warner has played in and started all 48 games since the Niners selected him in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft out of BYU. He played 94 percent of the snaps on defense in 2020.
