49ers Sign Zane Beadles To Three-Year Deal

MARCH 22: The 49ers have officially confirmed the signing of Beadles.

MARCH 17: The 49ers have made an addition to their offensive line, according to Adam Caplan of ESPN.com, who reports (via Twitter) that the team has agreed to terms on a deal with free agent guard Zane Beadles. Per Caplan, Beadles will get a three-year, $11.75MM contract from San Francisco.Zane Beadles

Beadles, 29, inked a lucrative five-year contract with the Jaguars two offseasons ago, and started all 32 of the team’s games at left guard in 2014 and 2015. However, the former Pro Bowler wasn’t overly effective after heading to Jacksonville from the Broncos. In 2015, Pro Football Focus ranked him 64th out of 81 qualified guards, and the Jags ultimately moved on from him, releasing him earlier this month.

In San Francisco, Beadles seems like a logical fit to step in on the offensive line for Alex Boone, who played primarily at left guard in 2015 before departing for the Vikings in free agency last week. Because he was cut by his previous team, Beadles won’t count against the compensatory draft pick formula for 2016.

The 49ers have been relatively quiet in free agency so far, and actually entered the day with the most cap room in the NFL, according to OverTheCap.com. Teams that entered the offseason with more space than the Niners, such as the Raiders, Jaguars, and Giants, have been among the most active spenders in free agency, leaving San Francisco at the top of that list.

    Can’t be worse than Jordan devey.

      Sure hope not. But to let Boone go he better be better than Devey. Better be almost as good as Boone at least. Looking forward to seeing Anthony Davis back too. Should help out the line a lot

  2. YES! YES! YES! The quest for 6 is alive again.

  3. Finally the 49ers sign someone. All that cap space and they do nothing

      They should give a few of their players raises since they don’t want to spend the money. I’d give Staley a raise and Bowman.

      • Do anything why are they being so cheap

          Yea I’m tired of seeing everyone signing everyone while the 9ers sit idle. Someone needs to tell Baalke Free Agency has started and his team is sitting on the most cap space in the NFL. At least give some of your guys who deserve pay raises a raise if you are content with letting everyone else sign elsewhere and also content with tanking next season. I feel bad for Chip Kelly. He is a good coach and I don’t care what people think about him but he is stuck with a GM doesn’t want to help the team obviously.

    Hope they draft another lineman. With this guy and Anthony Davis back and a solid lineman from the draft they would be a lot better. They can’t get worse then last year. That was a joke
