The linebacker who initially agreed to play with the 49ers has now decided against it.

After a late afternoon surprise, Eric Kendricks is allegedly leaving the 49ers for the Cowboys.  


SFGATE reports on the move and its implications.  


March 13, 9:15 a.m. The San Francisco 49ers needed to replace a key Super Bowl player who was injured in overtime.  


In former Chargers linebacker Eric Kendricks, the 49ers appear to have found that man after two days of free agency.  


ESPN's Adam Schefter claimed overnight that the 49ers have signed the 32-year-old for one year.  


After Dre Greenlaw tore his Achilles in Super Bowl LVIII's second quarter while training to sprint, Kendricks should stabilize the Niners' linebacker position.


This injury typically takes nine months to heal, making Greenlaw's 2024 season prospects uncertain.  


Most NFL pundits thought the 49ers would find someone to play next to Fred Warner, who reportedly modified his deal to save $10 million against the salary cap.  


With 100-plus tackles in all but one season (92 in his debut year), Kendricks seems like a good choice.   


Kendricks played his entire career for the Vikings until last year, when he had 117 tackles for the Chargers under Brandon Staley.
