Colts Trade First-Round Pick For DeForest Buckner

The Indianapolis Colts acquired All-Pro defensive tackle DeForest Buckner from the San Francisco 49ers on Monday in exchange for a first-round pick (13th overall) on Monday, according to sources. Buckner has already agreed to a big contract with the Colts that will pay him $21 million a season, which makes him the second highest paid defensive tackle in NFL history behind the Rams' Aaron Donald. San Fran's defense is already pretty strong, but losing Buckner is a notable loss. Turning 26 on Tuesday, Buckner had 7.5 sacks, 62 tackles (34 solo), two forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries and a touchdown in 2019. He'll help to drastically improve Indy's mediocre all-around defense in 2020 and beyond.

DeForest Buckner Back On Practice Field

San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle DeForest Buckner (toe) returned to practice Sunday after missing two days. Buckner, a fourth-year player, led the team with 12 sacks last year and recorded 17 tackles for loss. With his toe issue a thing of the past, Buckner is safe to deploy as an IDP who should be a menace in opposing backfields.

49ers, DeForest Buckner Far Apart In Contract Talks

The San Francisco 49ers and defensive end DeForest Buckner are far apart in long-term contract extension talks, according to a source. There is no deal in sight after Buckner's agent, Chafie Fields, talked with the team's brass in the last few days. The Niners picked up Buckner's fifth-year rookie option, and an extension is a priority for the team. The 25-year-old will be a big part of the team's improved pass rush in 2019 with additions around him. He had a career-high 12 sacks in 2018 and has 21 quarterback takedowns in his three seasons. He will surely be on the IDP map this year if he picks up where he left off in 2018.
