The 49ers have added even more depth to their already stifling defensive line.

Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Javon Hargrave has agreed to join the 49ers on a four-year, $84 million deal, his agent confirmed to ESPN's Adam Schefter on Monday.

The deal includes $40 million guaranteed, per Schefter -- something Hargrave appeared excited about on Twitter.

Hargrave has produced with both the Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers across his seven-year NFL career, most recently posting 69 total tackles (43 solo) in the 2022 regular season and playoffs with the reigning NFC champions. 

The 30-year-old is coming off one of his best seasons, posting a career-high 11 sacks as part of the Eagles' top-ranked pass rush. Hargrave also tallied 16 quarterback hits, 10 tackles for loss and a pair of fumble recoveries.

As word of the deal hit social media, players in San Francisco and across the NFL took to Twitter to post their reactions.

The 49ers boasted the NFL's top defense in 2022. And things just got a lot scarier for opposing offenses.
