The San Francisco 49ers are going to land Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Javon Hargrave in free agency.
Good for Javon Hargrave for getting the bag once again in his NFL free agency.
The former third-round pick by the Baltimore Ravens out of South Carolina State will be leaving the Philadelphia Eagles for heaping piles of gold over in the Bay Area. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Monday during the legal tampering period that Hargrave will be getting a four-year deal worth $80 million, $40 million fully guaranteed to go play for the San Francisco 49ers now.
Hargrave is a good player with an even better agent, as the man knows how to get himself paid.
This is a huge pickup for the 49ers, while simultaneously hurting the Eagles chances of repeating.
NFL rumors: Javon Hargrave gets the bag again and is heading to San Francisco
Hargrave just turned 30 and will be entering his eighth season in the NFL. He first made bank on the three-year deal worth $39 million with the Birds inked in 2020. Now, he is slated to more than double his net worth with the 49ers. While it remains to be seen if he is able to play out the four-year contract in its entirety, that’s $40 million guaranteed thanks to Drew Rosenhaus’ brilliance.
This reported signing is all about ensuring the 49ers will be an absolute wagon in the trenches, despite losing yet another coordinator to a head-coaching position. Kyle Shanahan may be an offensive-minded head coach, but two of his former coordinators starred on the other side of the ball in Robert Saleh of the New York Jets and now DeMeco Ryans heading to the Houston Texans.
Overall, this deal is all about getting insane productivity out of Hargrave in the first two years of it. Should he play out the new contract with the 49ers, Hargrave will be entering free agency for a third time at 34 years old. It would be highly unlikely that he will get that type of money again given his age. Then again, he seems to play a winning brand of football and teams really like that.
Congratulations to Hargrave and his family for getting the bag and securing generational wealth.
