Report: Arik Armstead to test free agency after release from San Francisco 49ers

One of the best Pro Ducks in the NFL is set to hit free agency, where the open market is likely to be very kind to him.

On Sunday night, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that former Duck Arik Armstead and the NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers were unable to reach an agreement in contract talks this offseason, and the elite defensive lineman was going to be released and allowed to test free agency starting this week.

Armstead had 5 sacks for the 49ers during their run to the Super Bowl in 2023, and he has stood as one of the most consistent pieces of the defense for San Francisco during his nine-year career.

We will see over the coming days and weeks where Armstead is going to end up, but there will likely be a solid market for him, with many contending teams often looking for veteran defensive linemen to put them over the top and get them into the championship contention.
