SF keeps first round bust around and will pay him $9 million to continue racking up an average of just over 2 sacks per season. 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said the team will retain DE Arik Armstead A first-round pick back in 2015, Armstead is owed a little over $9 million under the terms of his fifth-year option. The 49ers could clear all of that off their books but cutting him, but they have decided to keep him around despite Armstead logging just nine sacks in four seasons. "We’re not into losing good players," Shanahan said. "I think he can take it to a whole other level. I hope to see him do that this year."
