2023 NFL Free Agency, Live Updates: NFC West

6 min read
San Francisco 49ers 2023 free agents Jimmie Ward and Emmanuel Moseley

Can the 49ers retain unrestricted free agents Jimmie Ward (No. 1 pictured) and Emmanuel Moseley (No. 4 pictured)? The team has a number of difficult decisions to make in 2023.

The NFC West 2023 offseason started off with the hiring of a new head coach in the desert and a couple of notable retirements from perennial Pro Bowl stalwarts. The Rams parted ways with a couple of veteran Super Bowl champions. The Texans came in to the division to steal 49ers safety/nickel Jimmie Ward. The Seahawks are all the way in on Pro Bowl quarterback Geno Smith.
