Less than a month after waiving him, the 49ers have re-signed offensive guard Al Netter, the club said Monday.
The 24-year-old Netter has had stints on the 49ers’ practice squad in each of the last two seasons. He also spent time on the Titans’ practice squad in 2013. A Northwestern product, the 6-foot-6, 310-pound Netter entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with San Francisco in 2012.
Netter figures to again vie for a reserve role with the 49ers, who have 10 guards listed on their roster. Mike Iupati and Alex Boone are the Niners’ starters. According to the NFL’s transaction report listing Netter’s June release, the offensive lineman still has practice squad eligibility.
