One of the NFL’s best young linebackers is getting paid accordingly. Fred Warner has agreed to a five-year extension with the San Francisco 49ers, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported. The extension is worth more than $95 million, with $40.5 million in guarantees, per Garafolo, making Warner the highest-paid inside linebacker in the league. The extension was to be expected, especially after Warner made his first Pro Bowl and All-Pro team in 2020. Niners coach Kyle Shanahan said in May an extension was simply “a matter of time,” and more importantly said Warner is “a guy that I plan on being here forever and who has earned that.”
