Ex-Bills Safety Whitner Chooses 49ers Over Bengals

Earlier reported on NFL Gridiron Gab, ex-Bills safety Donte Whitner signed a two-year deal with the Bengals.

Now, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Whitner has altered his mind and will head to the Bay Area – instead of the “Queen City.”

The 49ers will give him $11.75 million, $4 million guaranteed, over the course of four years.

This comes after the Scarlet and Gold sent a mass email to other clubs stating their intention to trade second-year safety Taylor Mays.

    Mays has been a liability for the 49ers and has cost big play after big play. Whitner is certainly an upgrade, and it should tighten up the secondary.
