On one of the busiest sports days in recent memory, Tuesday night also included a mini blockbuster, as Pro Bowler Dee Ford, coming off a 13-sack season, was shipped from Kansas City to San Francisco.

ESPN's Josina Anderson also reported Ford would receive a five-year deal for $87.5 million once the trade becomes official.

Ford posted a career-high 13 sacks last season and led the National Football League with seven forced fumbles.

Many at Westminster believe that in that event MPs would vote to delay Britain's departure - to the fury of Brexiteers. And he warned Tory MPs who plan to vote against the deal that it could mean Jeremy Corbyn becoming prime minister.

Ford, 28, was amenable to playing 2019 on the franchise tag, but Kansas City is shifting away from the 3-4 defensive scheme it used under former defensive coordinator Bob Sutton, who was sacked at the end of the season after leading the NFL's 31st-ranked defense. He is their best edge rusher.

Last season, Ford finally became the player the Chiefs had envisioned when they drafted him out of Auburn in the first round in 2014.

Earlier this month, the Chiefs applied the franchise tag to Ford, but they have been open to trading him for the right price.

Linebacker Dee Ford is expected to be traded to the San Francisco 49ers, multiple reports say. His breakout campaign came one year after an injury-riddled 2017 and two years after a breakout campaign in which he registered 10 sacks and 17 quarterback hurries.

There's been some talk about Ford's fit in San Francisco's scheme.

The deal clears $15 million in salary-cap space for the Chiefs. It's a 4-3 scheme that lines up like a 3-4 in base downs, with five men along the line of scrimmage and two inside linebackers off the ball.

He also said Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan had asked India to send evidence it has against anybody. They can further that goodwill by dismantling the terrorist networks that operate within Pakistan.

However, with Ford's ability to rush the passer, adding that kind of talent is clearly the priority for the 49ers. It remains likely they target the position with their first-round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft with Ohio State's Nick Bosa and Kentucky's Josh Allen as the favored candidates. The other team was the Green Bay Packers. "He's had some production and if he is here with us, I'll be excited to have him and be excited to work with him".
