#1419 SANTA CLARA Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys Stitched , Calif. — The San Francisco 49ers opened the new league year Wednesday by acquiring the defensive playmaker the team was sorely lacking in edge rusher Dee Ford.The 49ers are sending a 2020 second-round pick to the Kansas City Chiefs for Ford and are giving him a five-year, $87.5 million contract, according to his agent.The Chiefs had placed the franchise tag on Ford after he had a career-high 13 sacks last season and led the NFL with seven forced fumbles. But they had questions about how he’d fit in new coordinator Steve Spagnuolo’s defense and decided to trade him instead of paying him $15.4 million for this season.Ford was picked in the first round by Kansas City in 2014 but went through some growing pains as he adapted to life in the NFL and has an injury history that is cause for conexcited to finally show the Bengals' new look."We definitely held back plenty," Bernard said. "We're just really excited for this week. It's an opportunity for us to show everyone what we can do."RUNAWAY TRAINLast year the Seahawks had the top rushing offense in the NFL, averaging 160 yards per game and only a little bit of contribution from Wilson.Expect more of the same from Chris Carson and the rest of Seattle's running backs.Carson rushed for 1,151 yards in the regular season last year and the Seahawks are expecting much of the same this year. But there is hope that Carson won't be alone in carrying the load. Look for Rashaad Penny and C.J. Prosise to get additional carries to balance out the work.PERFECT MARKThe Bengals will be trying to accomplish something that hasn't been done since Carroll arrived in 2010. Over the previous nine seasons, Seattle is 14-0 in home games in September. One stat on Cincinnati's side: Dalton is 2-0 in his career against Seattle.
