When this deal becomes official - which can not occur until after 3 p.m. CT Wednesday at the earliest - Ford's contract is expected to be for five years and $87.5 million, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson.

"49ers fans shouldn't fear, the decision to trade Ford was strictly business", Goldman wrote in an email.

The interesting thing about a deal to the 49ers, though, is San Francisco also runs a 4-3 defense. It's unlikely Ford would be used in these packages as a "Leo" defensive end or "Sam" linebacker.
