The San Francisco 49ers have reportedly signed former Jacksonville Jaguars free agent offensive lineman Zane Beadles, according to Adam Caplan of ESPN.
Beadles' new deal is a three-year contract worth $11.75 million. It's good money for a lineman who was admittedly subpar last season, but it's a pay cut from what he was scheduled to make over the next three years in Jacksonville -- roughly $17.5 million when you include roster bonuses and workout bonuses, according to Spotrac.com.
The 29-year-old guard was the first major free agent signing by then new general manager Dave Caldwell during the 2014 offseason. He was signed with the intent to be a veteran presence on a Jaguars offensive line that needed to be rebuilt and fit in the team's zone blocking scheme, coming from a few nice seasons with the Denver Broncos, including a Pro Bowl season.
