The San Francisco 49ers made Fred Warner the NFL's highest-paid linebacker earlier this week.

With the 49ers moving from Robert Saleh to DeMeco Ryans as its new defensive coordinator, Warner is expecting to blitz more in 2021.

"That is for sure a point of emphasis going into this season, the blitzing," Warner said. "I know I'll have more opportunities in the pass-rushing game and forcing fumbles."
