Biography

Whitner, a 5-10, 208-pound safety entering his ninth season out of Ohio State, is a Cleveland native who attended Glenville High School. Selected to the Pro Bowl each of the past two seasons with San Francisco, helping the Niners to the league’s final four each year, Whitner started all 16 games last season. He totaled 103 tackles, 12 passes defensed, two interceptions, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery, garnering All-NFC honors from the Professional Football Writers of America (PFWA).
Originally selected by Buffalo with the eighth overall pick in the 2006 draft, Whitner has started 113 of his 116 career games. He has totaled 782 tackles, 46 passes defensed, 10 interceptions, eight forced fumbles, six fumble recoveries, two defensive touchdowns and 1.5 sacks.
 
Whitner spent five seasons (2006-10) with the Bills before signing as an unrestricted free agent with San Francisco, where he played three years (2011-13). Whitner helped the 49ers advance to the NFC Championship game all three seasons, including a trip to Super Bowl XLVII.
 
With the Buckeyes, Whitner started 18 of 35 games, registering 164 tackles, nine passes defensed, five interceptions, five sacks, two forced fumbles and one blocked punt returned for a touchdown. During his final season as a junior, he helped Ohio State finish fifth in the nation in total defense.
