The 49ers and linebacker Kwon Alexander have reportedly agreed to a four-year, $54 million deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Alexander, 24, is entering his fifth season in the league. He spent each of the first four campaigns with the Buccaneers. In 2017, he was named to his first career Pro Bowl.

Last season, Alexander appeared in only six games, racking up 45 total tackles, six tackles for loss and one sack. He suffered a season-ending torn ACL against the Browns in Week 7.

The former fourth-round pick led the league in solo tackles with 108 in 2016.
