ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Mike Iupati's deal with Arizona for 5 yrs, $40M, plus incentives up to $41M with $22.5M guaranteed. Selected 17th overall by the 49ers in 2010, Iupati was thought to be one of the most sought after guards in the offseason.
The loss of Iupati is just one of many woes for San Francisco this week, who recently found out Patrick Willis would be retiring, and the rival Seattle Seahawks have reportedly signed TE Jimmy Graham.
In Arizona, Iupati joins Jonathan Cooper on an improving offensive line that wants to be the elite of the NFC West.
