The 49ers announced on Saturday they have traded for All-Pro left tackle Trent Williams, giving up their fifth-round pick in 2020 and their third-round pick in 2021.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting All-Decade left tackle Joe Staley will be retiring and allowed for the 49ers to find his replacement before making an official annoucement.
