The 49ers have their first extension worked out during the Shanahan/Lynch era and it’s cornerback K’Waun Williams. Three years, $10 million, risky given the small sample size and his past, but it’s also the right call.

Even with a year off, Williams has shown he can still play at this level given how he leapfrogged the roster to be a starting cornerback. Perhaps the 49ers didn’t want to be negotiating with him at the end of the season. $10 million is better than $30 million, and if his solid play continues, that deal is only going to hit the salary cap harder.

Now it’s just a matter of if he’s left whatever made the Cleveland Browns release him in Cleveland. Things could change now that he’s longer on that one-year prove-it deal. Onto your links!
