49ers To Trade LB Jonas Griffith To Broncos

Tuesday has marked a two-trade morning for new Broncos GM George Paton. After sending wide receiver Trinity Benson to the Lions, the Broncos are acquiring linebacker Jonas Griffith from the 49ers.

Griffith will head to Denver in exchange for a 2022 sixth-rounder and a seventh in 2023, Mike Klis of 9News notes. San Francisco will also send a 2022 seventh-rounder to Denver in this deal. This trade construction is similar to the deal Paton completed with Detroit, which involved Benson and a pick going to the Lions in exchange for two draft choices.

A 250-pound linebacker out of Indiana State, Griffith arrived in the NFL as a UDFA last year. He spent time on the Colts and 49ers’ practice squads and landed a reserve/futures deal with San Francisco in January. He figures to contribute as a special-teamer in Denver.
