49ers boost D-line, sign Super Bowl champ Floyd to two-year deal

NBC Universal, Inc.

The 49ers are reinforcing their defensive line.

San Francisco announced Monday that it signed defensive lineman Leonard Floyd to a two-year contract.

NFL Media's Ian Rapoport first reported last week, citing a source, that the two agreed to terms last week on a two-year, $20 million contract that includes $12 million guaranteed in 2024. Floyd, 31, spent the 2023 NFL season with the Buffalo Bills, recording 10.5 sacks in 17 regular-season games.

Floyd appeared to confirm the report a few minutes later with a post on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Floyd's recent pass-rushing production has been a model of consistency, with the former first-round draft pick recording at least nine sacks in each of the last four seasons.

The 31-year-old was selected with the No. 9 overall selection in the 2016 NFL Draft, spending four seasons with the Chicago Bears before stints with the Los Angeles Rams and Bills. Floyd has recorded five playoff sacks in nine career postseason games, winning Super Bowl LVI as a key cog in the Rams' defense.
