DeForest Buckner wanted to sign a long-term deal, and many expected him to re-sign with San Fransisco, which technically he did. On top of that he’s headed to Indianapolis.

Buckner was strong last year with the NFC Champion 49ers. He racked up 7.5 sacks, 62 total tackles and two forced fumbles. In the 2019 postseason, Buckner had 2.5 sacks, 12 total tackles (nine solo), a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.

Over his four years in San Francisco, the former Oregon Duck has amassed some impressive numbers: 28.5 sacks, 263 total tackles, three forced fumbles, seven fumble recoveries and in pass coverage 11 passes defensed.

Schefter believes it’s likely the 49ers try to flip one of their now two first-round picks into more draft capital because San Fran does not currently have a second-, third- or fourth-round pick.
