After a disappointing 2020 season in which the team was injury-riddled, the San Francisco 49ers are trying to rebuild their elite defense to compete in the tough NFC West. One of the moves the team has made this offseason was re-signing cornerback K'Waun Williams.
Recently, the details of Williams' new contract were revealed. It looks to be a good value for the nickel corner.
Williams' new contract is for just one season. It includes a $137,500 signing bonus and a base salary of $2.24 million. With the deal being a "four year qualifying" contract, the overall cap hit is reduced to roughly $1.1 million.
The 49ers cornerback was one of many San Francisco players to be injured last season. A high-ankle sprain caused him to miss games late in the year, after an ACL sprain kept him out early on.
In all, his 2020 season was limited to only eight games. He recorded one pass breakup, 11 defensive stops and allowed a 69.2% catch rate. While he is not an elite talent for the 49ers defense, he is more than serviceable, especially at such a low cap hit for 2021.
