SAN FRANCISCO (KETK) – Trent Williams, a Longview Lobo native, reportedly signed the largest offensive lineman contract in NFL history with the San Francisco 49ers, according to a report by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The highly sought-after left tackle had entered free agency and had been interested in heading to the Kansas City Chiefs with East Texan Patrick Mahomes after they released two veteran free agents last week.

However, he ultimately decided to remain with the 49ers, where he has been since being traded from the Washington Football Team last April after 8 seasons.

Schefter reported that the contract is a six-year extension worth $138.06 million. $55 million of the deal is in guaranteed money and it also includes a $30.1 million signing bonus.

At 32 years old, this likely locks in Williams with the 49ers for the rest of his career.
