Why Kelly Clarkson and Kristin Cavallari haven’t been able to sell their Nashville homes

Sandy Mazza Nashville Tennessean Published 9:12 AM EST Jan 3, 2019

Reba McEntire’s waterfront estate in Lebanon, an 83-acre expanse with a gazebo, tennis court, stables, pastures, and a seven-bedroom Southern colonial home, sat on the market for more than a year.

The $7.9 million listing finally sold in July 2017 at the deeply discounted price of $5 million.

In the greater Nashville area, such multi-million-dollar home sales have skyrocketed since 2000 — from dozens to hundreds sold each year.

Since 2013, the number of homes sold for over $1 million in the 9-county greater Nashville area have jumped each year, from 300 in 2013 to 846 in 2018 as of Dec. 20, according to Greater Nashville Realtors.

They present lucrative opportunities for real-estate agents willing to invest time and energy into them. But it can take years to unload luxury properties and, even then, deep discounts may be needed.

McEntire’s estate was split in two, and the buyer developed 15 homes on one portion. The house was resold for $3.1 million, and is now an event venue called The Estate at Cherokee Dock.

Selling luxury homes takes time, money

In Nashville’s heated real-estate market, the average home sells within about a month.

But, with just a smaller pool of wealthy buyers to draw from, luxury listings linger.

Kelly Clarkson’s $8.75 million gated lakefront Hendersonville mansion has been on the market for two years.

Former NFL quarterback Jay Cutler and reality TV personality Kristin Cavallari put their $7.9 million Forest Hills home on the market in July.

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban shaved more than $1 million off the cost of their Franklin home to unload it for $2.3 million after two years on the market.

One of the most expensive recorded sales in the Nashville area — country star Alan Jackson’s 135-acre “Sweetbriar” estate in Franklin — was listed for $38 million in 2009. It sold for the discounted price of $28 million in 2010 to tech entrepreneur Willis Johnson.

James Spencer, a real-estate agent with Mossy Oak Properties, is currently marketing the most expensive listing in the Nashville area: a $32.5 million, 1,600-acre ranch that straddles Davidson and Williamson counties, just south of Bellevue.

“Not many people walk around with millions of dollars in their pockets,” Spencer said. “These (listings) do not come along every day. It will be a good day at our house when the property does sell. But a lot of work goes into it.”

The art of selling multi-million-dollar homes

Spencer is using targeted ads designed to attract the well-heeled on Facebook, and in magazines and the mail.

Real-estate agents earn a commission that typically starts at 6 percent — or nearly $2 million for a $32.5 million sale — but they cover marketing costs and often split earnings with listing agents.

Quality photos of the properties are critical, and agents must be present at showings.

“We get it in front of the folks who have relationships with those types of people,” Spencer said. “We knew that we would be taking on a large amount of upfront marketing expense. And we know that ultimately the property will sell, it may just be a matter of time.”

Traceland Farm, Spencer’s high-priced listing, has a world-class equestrian center, several lakes, ATV trails, a 4-bedroom home with two safe rooms and an escape tunnel, and more than 60 deer stands.

“To find a tract this large with this much privacy so close to Nashville is almost unheard of,” Spencer said. “That’s where a lot of the value is. Somebody’s got to be looking for that. (The owners) hunted it, fished it, rode horses. It was a family compound.”

A seller can hasten the sale by lowering the price tag, making improvements to it, and reducing any restrictions they may have put on the property. For example, Spencer’s listing is open to investors who could split it into parcels and develop the land — although they would first have to get permits to do so.

Buyers sought nationwide

Bill Henson, an agent with SilverPointe Properties, recently put a $17.9 million home on the market in Franklin’s exclusive gated enclave of Hidden River Lane.

The 6-bedroom, 10.5-bathroom brick mansion boasts more than 100 chandeliers, nine fireplaces and three bars.

Agents for luxury listings like this one typically cast a wide net for buyers across the country who may be looking for a place to live in Nashville, he said.

“This one is very opulent and would be a primary residence,” Henson said. “As much as you want to think the buyer may drop in from Mars or California, Texas or New York, you’ve certainly got to market it here as well. The buyer is going to decide they want to live in this area and then look for houses here, not the other way around.”

Often, high-priced homes will come with furniture included to help ease the transition for the buyer, since furnishing a luxury home is expensive and time consuming.

“Sometimes a home may sell very quickly in this price range, but not very often,” Henson said. “Often, (sales) include furniture because, let’s be honest, it might take you three years to decorate a 20,000-square-foot home properly.”

Bears fans won’t have much of a rooting interest in Super Bowl LIV aside from an office pool, prop bet or other wagers that keep them at the edge of their seats, but there is at least one ‘football reason’ to pay close attention to the players on the field.

Several Chiefs and 49ers are scheduled to hit unrestricted free agency in March, and many of them are fits to fill needs on the Bears roster.

Here’s a look at four pending free agents from Super Bowl LIV who could be playing in Chicago in 2020.

RELATED: Top 30 free agents of 2020 NFL offseason

Kendall Fuller (CB, Chiefs)

The expected departure of Bears veteran cornerback Prince Amukamara will create a need for an established starter opposite Kyle Fuller, so why not tap into his bloodlines and sign his brother, Kendall? Beyond just the cool story it would make, the Fuller brothers would instantly become one of the better cornerback tandems in the NFL.

Kendall Fuller missed time this season with a broken thumb but proved to be a strong presence as a run defender (much like his brother) and would bring another physical thumper to the Bears secondary.

Demarcus Robinson (WR, Chiefs)

The Bears need a speed threat on offense, as wide receiver Taylor Gabriel hasn’t been that guy through his first two seasons on the team. He may not make it to a third year, either. Enter Robinson, who averaged 14 yards per catch and proved capable of making big plays when given the opportunity.

His path to the field has been blocked by Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins, but he has familiarity with Matt Nagy’s offense and would instantly provide the kind of juice the passing game needs.

Ben Garland (iOL, 49ers)

The Bears’ need along the offensive line isn’t limited to any single position. They need a starter at guard to replace the retired Kyle Long, and they need more options at tackle in the event of further regression by Charles Leno, Jr. and Bobby Massie.

Enter Garland, whose steady and reliable play as San Francisco’s starting center will make him a hot commodity on the open market. He has experience at guard, too, which will be attractive to teams like the Bears who have interchangeable parts in James Daniels and Cody Whitehair already on the roster.

Jimmy Ward (Saf, 49ers)

One of the big-ticket free agents of the offseason, Ward would be a dynamic addition to a Bears secondary that already features the NFL’s highest-paid safety, Eddie Jackson. Ward was the 10th-highest-graded safety in the league, per Pro Football Focus, and will be a priority for 49ers GM John Lynch this offseason.

Kristin Cavallari has grown up in front of the cameras.

When asked if there ever was a moment she didn’t want to have the cameras rolling during her new E! series, the mom of three confessed: “All the time!”

“People don’t realize how time-consuming a reality show is,” Cavallari told Fox News. “It really pulled me away from Uncommon James a lot this season.

“I’m doing the show to fuel the business, so it’s easy for me to keep my eyes on the prize, but it can be overwhelming at times for sure,” she noted.

KRISTIN CAVALLARI SAYS SHE AND JAY CUTLER’S SEX LIFE GETS ‘BETTER’ WITH TIME

As viewers know, Cavallari has gone through tough times with husband Jay Cutler on the show since it first aired in July 2018, but thankfully the couple is now better than ever.

Of the secret to their nearly seven-year marriage, the TV personality says: “It’s realizing that marriage is up and down and not to just give up when you’re in a low.

“Relationships are constantly evolving so it’s important to keep the communication open and verbalize your wants and needs because those also change,” she added.

Two points of conflict for the pair – who are parents to sons Camden, 7, Jaxon, 5, and daughter Taylor, 4 – were making more time for each other, as well as the former Chicago Bears quarterback supporting Cavallari’s aspirations, which according to the business mogul, have both now happened.

“Once the cameras stop rolling for good, I will walk away with such a positive taste in my mouth, and I don’t know that I could have said the same years ago.”

“I have an amazing team at Uncommon James now which has freed up a lot of my time so, yes, we are making more time for one another,” said Cavallari, adding that with three kids it will still “always be a little bit of a struggle.”

As for chasing her dreams? “Jay sees how much I get out of Uncommon James and having that creative outlet, so he supports it. I think we both realize that I’m a better mom and wife when I have that outlet,” said Cavallari.

KRISTIN CAVALLARI, JAY CUTLER DISCUSS FORMER NFL STAR’S PLANS TO ‘OPEN A BUTCHER SHOP’

Cavallari and Cutler have opted to not show their children on the show, with the couple pointing to letting them just be kids, as well as giving their little ones the opportunity to decide for themselves whether or not they want to be in the limelight.

In addition to their kids being off-limits, Cavallari admits that the duo “have a lot of boundaries” when it comes to filming in general. However, despite having restrictions, Cavallari has not been immune to rumors that naturally come with being a public figure.

KRISTIN CAVALLARI REVEALS MAJOR FALLING OUT WITH BEST FRIEND KELLY HENDERSON OVER AFFAIR RUMORS

In the first episode of Season 3, Cavallari reveals that she’s had a falling out with her best friend, Kelly Henderson, explaining that she hadn’t spoken with Henderson for several months after they disagreed on how to handle rumors that she had an affair with Cutler.

When it comes to dealing with rumors in general, Cavallari acknowledges that “rumors are part of this industry.”

“I’ve dealt with it for so many years that I’ve learned how to ‘not listen to the noise,’ but it takes me a while to trust people, trust has to be earned, it’s not given,” she shared.

Overall though, Cavallari believes it’s been worth it to return to her reality TV roots.

“Not only did it get Uncommon James out there, which was my reasoning from the get-go, but it’s been such a better experience for me than ‘Laguna Beach’ and ‘The Hills,'” said Cavallari.

She continued: “Once the cameras stop rolling for good, I will walk away with such a positive taste in my mouth, and I don’t know that I could have said the same years ago.”

“Very Cavallari” airs on Thursdays at 9 pm EST on E!

Kristin Cavallari’s Former Best Friend Refuses to Talk About ‘Stupid’ Jay Cutler Cheating Rumors

While Cavallari has insisted she never believed the rumor, she said she was upset by Henderson’s response to it — or lack thereof, claiming on Thursday’s episode that Henderson “never once” apologized and instead only continued to mention Cutler on social media, which “fueled the fire.”

Justin Anderson, Cavallari’s longtime friend and colorist, decided to sit down with Henderson to try to get to the bottom of what happened between the two. Henderson told Anderson she was “super blindsided” by the falling out and “had no idea was even mad at .”

Henderson explained that she had been taking some time to focus on her own life. According to Henderson, she and Cavallari “have grown up as friends living in two different cities,” which meant “there would be periods of time where we would talk more than others.”

Still, Henderson said she “got excited” to reconnect with Cavallari as production on this season of Very Cavallari was gearing up to begin and reached out to the star.

“And then I got a f—ing text that I did not interpret to be very nice,” Henderson said. “I think she thinks I’m texting just because of the show. I don’t understand, though — if I only cared about the show, I would have been like, up her ass to try to be on .”

When Anderson tried to broach the Cutler rumors with Henderson, she immediately shut the conversation down.

“I’m not talking about that stupid s—,” she said. “That, to me — you know that’s not true. That’s the most f—ing stupid thing ever.”

“I feel like this is all coming down on me,” she continued. “She hurt my feelings, too!”

Much to Anderson’s surprise, Henderson broke down in tears and stormed out of the room. When he filled Cavallari in on how the conversation had gone, the star was furious.

“She won’t return my text messages,” Cavallari said. “The whole time, her thing has been, ‘I don’t care about the show, I only care about your friendship.’ She drank the Kool-Aid, big time. I thought Kelly was the last person on the planet that this would ever happen with.”

“Honestly, it wasn’t even about the rumors,” Cavallari continued, though she added that Henderson was “defensive” about them. “It was that then she went on social media and kept talking about him in such a way that was fueling the fire. Everybody in my life was asking about it. And I’m like, ‘I know it’s not true.’ Says every f—ing girl! I’m the one who has to deal it, Kelly, not you. All she f—ing cared about was that people thought of her that way.”

“It’s such a slap in my face,” she added, tearing up. “And the fact that she couldn’t understand that blows my mind.”

When asked whether the two could ever be friends again, Cavallari said she hoped they could find a way.

“I hope that we’ll be able to. I miss her, I know that. I’ll always love her, no matter what,” she said. “But I think I see her in a new light now and I don’t know that I can ever get back to a really good place with her.”

After last week’s episode aired, a source told PEOPLE the two women have yet to discuss the drama face-to-face.

“Kristin and Kelly still haven’t spoken. Kristin is very hurt,” said the source. “She thought Kelly was her best friend and Kelly just didn’t want to admit that she was wrong about how she handled the situation. She just disappeared on Kristin and then reappeared when they started filming again. The ball is in Kelly’s corner now.”

Henderson had not directly addressed the feud before Thursday’s episode, but a sneak peek at the rest of the season teased an emotional sit-down between the two women. Last week, she did appear to acknowledge the drama with a cryptic Instagram post that read, “Take a deep breath and remember who the f— you are.”

Gone are the days when you’d catch Kristin Cavallari yelling at her The Hills co-stars on top of a rooftop in downtown Los Angeles. Since first making her debut on Laguna Beach in 2004, the reality star has since become a wife, mom of three, and founder of her own jewelry, clothing, and home collections. And her “bad girl” image that we all loved so much? Well, that was all for the cameras — and it ended as soon as she met her husband Jay Cutler.

Jay made a bold first move … and it backfired.

Remember the infamous moment between Kristin and Justin Bobby during the final season of The Hills? (Jog your memory here.) Well, it was totally fake. In fact, it was around this time in 2010 that Jay Cutler, a quarterback for the Chicago Bears, first reached out to the reality star. “His sisters used to watch Laguna Beach so he knew who I was. In the middle of filming The Hills, I got a call from my publicist who said, ‘Jay Cutler wants to fly you to Chicago and take you on a date.’ I didn’t know who he was. I didn’t want a boyfriend at the time so I said no,” she recalled during an interview on Steve Harvey in 2017. Despite turning him down the first time, she met up with him while attending a Bears game in Chicago with her mom and cousin.

They had an instant connection: “We hung out two nights later, and that began a swift and intense romance. I flew back to Chicago at least every two weeks. When we were apart, we texted constantly, and he wrote me the sweetest love emails. He was the strong, manly man I wanted but had a sweet, romantic side as well,” she wrote in her book Balancing In Heels.

After eight months of dating, the couple got engaged in April 2011. However, they broke off their engagement in July of that year.

The couple called it quits for three long weeks.

Once the excitement of the engagement died down, so did the butterflies. It became clear to Cavallari that the couple — Cutler, especially — needed to change their ways if they wanted a long-lasting, happy marriage. “Jay and I got engaged really quickly after eight months and we had a lot of things that we needed to work on. I broke up with him because some things needed to change and the only way that he was going to see how serious I was, was if I broke up with him,” she said during an interview on Bethenny in 2013. “I knew it wasn’t the end. We got back together literally three weeks later.”

Together again, they agreed to get help from the professionals to better understand how they can best love one another. “I credit for saving our relationship,” she confessed. “She opened up our eyes to the other person’s perspective and gave us great tools for communication…we still periodically see her to this day,” she wrote in Balancing In Heels.

They wasted no time to start a family.

Shortly after getting back together, the couple held off on saying “I do” because they had something bigger in the works: They were expecting their first baby. On August 8, 2012, they welcomed son Camden Jack. The following year, the couple got married in Nashville, Tennessee. Since then, their family has grown by two: They welcomed son Jaxon Wyatt on May 7, 2014 and daughter Saylor James on November 23, 2015.

“Becoming a mom is where I blossomed. I finally feel like I’m where I’m supposed to be in my life and I’m very comfortable being a mom,” she told People in 2016. “I’m proud of the way that we’ve raised our kids. I’ve done a few controversial things apparently but I’m so confident in my decisions. My kids are happy and healthy, and that’s all I care about.”

Now, their family is at the center of Very Cavallari.

After staying away from the spotlight for a few years, Cavallari and Cutler made a joint decision to head back to the world of reality TV — but on their own terms. Very Cavallari, which follows the 32-year-old in Nashville as she juggles her career with motherhood, debuted on E! in July 2018. Although it’s initial focus was Cavallari’s new flagship store for her jewelry company Uncommon James, (she has since expanded her business portfolio with Little James, a kids clothing line and Uncommon James Home, a curated line of modern home goods), the real standout star was none other than Cutler, who recently retired from football.

“He really doesn’t want anything to do with reality TV, to be quite honest. But he’s doing it to support me and he understands what a good opportunity it is for me. And so my biggest concern with filming the show was just making sure that he was always comfortable,” she told Elle. “Before we started filming we talked beforehand about what we were willing to put out there, what we weren’t where in the house we could film — you’ll never see the master bedroom, for example. We both just wanted to make sure we have some stuff that’s just for us, that’s private.”

Their kids remain totally off-limits. “I don’t really show my kids on social media. Right now, they’re five, four, and two. When they’re old enough to make that decision, that’s one thing but right now I just want to keep them kids,” she told E! during an interview at the NBCU Upfronts in 2018.

Successful TV show aside, the happy couple remains focused on what’s most important: their kids. Despite their busy schedule, Cavallari makes sure they always give their kids the attention they need. “I’ve learned how to manage my time working on all three while still being a hands-on mom, picking the kids up at school, packing their lunches, I do swim classes with the boys,” she told TODAY. “I want to be that mom. I don’t want a nanny picking my kids up. I want to be there.”

So, any hope for baby #4? As of right now, it seems like it’s a hard no. “We feel like a very complete family, especially because I got my girl,” she told US Weekly earlier this year. “Things are just, so great so why rock the boat?” From the looks of it, the only thing they’re adding to their crew are chicks, goats, and other animals for their Nashville farm.

How Did Kristin Cavallari & Jay Cutler Meet? The Seemingly Random Couple Got Off To A Rocky Start

You could never have convinced me as a Hills fan that Kristin Cavallari would be the one cast member who would end up the most conventionally “settled down.” I need to remember that she is no longer that 18-year-old girl going on trips to Cabo with her BFFs and getting involved in dramatic love triangles with Brody Jenner — after all, she’s 28 now and a lot has happened. In 2010, the reality star’s life changed when she started dating a Chicago Bears quarterback, so how did Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler meet, anyway?

Their story seems to have begun around 2009. In a 2013 interview with A Drink With, Cavallari openly shared that Cutler was the first to show interest and that it was from a distance. She said,

I will tell you what really happened. I got a call from my publicist that Jay wanted to fly me out to Chicago and take me out. I didn’t know who he was! I had to google him. I was in the middle of filming The Hills so I was like, “I don’t want a boyfriend in Chicago,” and passed on it.

Well, she’s definitely a girl who knows what she wants. After she finished taping The Hills, she found herself at a pre-season game. Coincidence? Maybe it was fate. She continued,

A year later I was here visiting my mom and we ended up going to a pre-season game. I had forgotten all about it and my mom said, “Didn’t Jay Cutler ask you out?” Long story short I ended up meeting him and when he walked in I was like, “Oh my goodness!” I thought he was really cute.

After that meeting, it didn’t take very long for something to blossom. By January 2011, she was already telling press that she was “in love” and the two were reportedly engaged by April of the same year. Three months after they got engaged, the couple called off their impending wedding and Cavallari was left “devastated.” Wow, that is a lot to have happen within such a short time span, but real love will always find a way.

Later that year, she appeared on Dancing With the Stars and fans were shocked to see Cutler cheering her on in the crowd. The couple confirmed that their engagement was back on, and soon after that, they announced they were pregnant with their first child, Camden, who was born in August 2012. Less than two years later, they welcomed their second son, Jaxon.

And they show no signs of slowing down. On May 11, 2015, Cavallari announced that she was once again pregnant and would be welcoming baby number THREE! She shared the news via her Kristin Cavallari app (who knew?) and said, “We’re at it again! Thrilled to announce baby number 3 is on the way! The cutler crew just keeps growin’!”

Now, the couple seems to be more in love than ever. Cavallari shared with Michigan Avenue Magazine after the birth of their second child:

Jay is a great dad… He’s incredibly hands-on, and he has been since day one. It’s so sweet seeing him with Camden and Jax, and there’s nothing sexier than seeing your husband as a great dad. I couldn’t ask for a better partner in this situation.

A huge congrats to the couple!

There Will Be No More Baby Cutlers For Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler

Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler have made a lot of changes in the last few years. After Cutler retired from the NFL, the couple packed up their lives and headed to Tennessee. There they’ve built a life, a farm, and a budding accessories business. It seems like just about anything is possible for the famous couple, but there is one major life event that is entirely off the table – adding an additional baby. Cavallari and Cutler admit that they have no plans on adding any additional Cutlers to their family, and they are perfectly happy with the decision.

Why don’t Kristin and Jay want any more children?

Cavallari doesn’t have much of a filter. She’s unabashedly honest about her feelings on many topics, and it doesn’t seem like anything is off-limits. The famed TV personality has told her television audience about the colonic she and Cutler had as a date before they were married. She also regaled disturbed dinner guests with a tale about Cutler helping her unclog a milk duct while she was nursing. It’s no surprise that she has a definitive opinion about her family and that she’s willing to share those thoughts.

Cavallari admits that while she adores being a mother, she’s not particularly interested in going back to changing diapers and feeding babies in the early morning hours. Speaking with Life and Style Magazine, Cavallari alleges things are running smoothly now that her youngest child is four, and she’s not really interested in taking a step back. Instead, Cavallari is focusing on enjoying life with her “very complete” family and building her business.

How many kids does the couple have?

Cavallari and Cutler married in June 2013, in a cozy and simple ceremony in Tennesse. The couple’s first child, then less than a year old, was pushed down the aisle by two flower girls, according to People. After their wedding, the couple set up shop in Chicago were Cutler was playing for the Chicago Bears. He eventually retired from the NFL after a short stint with the Miami Dolphins in 2017.

During his time in the NFL, Cutler and Cavallari continued to add to their family. The couple’s first son, Camden Jack, was born in 2012. They welcomed their second child, Jaxon Wyatt, in 2014. The couple completed their family in 2015 with their only daughter, Saylor James.

What happens when I want my kids to model for @littlejamesclothing but I also want to keep their privacy

A post shared by Kristin Cavallari (@kristincavallari) on Nov 10, 2019 at 9:54am PST

Cutler and Cavallari have chosen to keep their children out of the public eye. They did not appear in Season 2 of Very Cavallari, and they will not be appearing in the third season of the show, either. The kids are also mostly kept off social media. While Cavallari does share photos of her kids, their faces are always strategically hidden to give them a sense of anonymity.

What’s next for Kristin and Jay?

Cavallari and Cutler might not be willing to go back to diapers and sleepless nights, but that doesn’t mean they are ready to sit back and relax, either. Now that Cutler isn’t tied to the NFL, Cavallari is free to build her business and her reality TV career, and that’s just what she is doing. The third season of Very Cavallari will premier in January 2020. Cavallari promises that the third season will start with a bang and cover some pretty heavy topics, according to Life and Style Magazine.

On top of the show, Cavallari isn’t against the idea of showing up on The Hills: New Beginnings. The hit show pulled in many familiar faces, but Cavallari and her archnemesis, Lauren Conrad, were both surprisingly absent. Conrad, for her part, has stepped away from the reality TV world and is, instead, focused on her design business and her family.

Cavallari is also busy growing her company, Uncommon James. The jewelry and accessories business has grown to include an offshoot company, Little James. Little James is a children’s apparel business.

Bears fans won’t have much of a rooting interest in Super Bowl LIV aside from an office pool, prop bet or other wagers that keep them at the edge of their seats, but there is at least one ‘football reason’ to pay close attention to the players on the field.

Several Chiefs and 49ers are scheduled to hit unrestricted free agency in March, and many of them are fits to fill needs on the Bears roster.

His path to the field has been blocked by Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins, but he has familiarity with Matt Nagy’s offense and would instantly provide the kind of juice the passing game needs.

Ben Garland (iOL, 49ers)

The Bears’ need along the offensive line isn’t limited to any single position. They need a starter at guard to replace the retired Kyle Long, and they need more options at tackle in the event of further regression by Charles Leno, Jr. and Bobby Massie.

Enter Garland, whose steady and reliable play as San Francisco’s starting center will make him a hot commodity on the open market. He has experience at guard, too, which will be attractive to teams like the Bears who have interchangeable parts in James Daniels and Cody Whitehair already on the roster.

Jimmy Ward (Saf, 49ers)

One of the big-ticket free agents of the offseason, Ward would be a dynamic addition to a Bears secondary that already features the NFL’s highest-paid safety, Eddie Jackson. Ward was the 10th-highest-graded safety in the league, per Pro Football Focus, and will be a priority for 49ers GM John Lynch this offseason.
