Floyd joined the 49ers on a two-year, $20 million contract worth up to $24 million. The veteran is guaranteed $12 million in his first year in San Francisco.

Floyd, 31, had 32 tackles, 10.5 sacks and one forced fumble last season in his first year with the Buffalo Bills. Floyd spent the first four seasons of his career with the Chicago Bears before being traded to the Los Angeles Rams in 2020.

After three seasons with the Rams, Floyd signed a one-year contract with the Bills. He now joins former Bears coach Brandon Staley. Staley was fired as head coach of the Los Angeles Chargers in December and was hired as assistant head coach of the 49ers.


Floyd complements a defense that was already excellent in 2023. The 49ers allowed 303.9 yards per game last year, which ranked eighth in the league.

However, their defense was unable to stop the Kansas City Chiefs in last season’s Super Bowl, making it clear that they still have work to do.

Signing Floyd gives San Francisco a big lead, and the 49ers will look to return to the Super Bowl next season with an improved defensive unit.
