The 49ers announced the signing of linebacker Brock Coyle on Friday.

The 49ers have been one of the busiest teams in adding veteran players, and Coyle gives them depth at linebacker and experience on special teams. Coyle, 26, played in 12 games and started three for the Seahawks last season.

The Seahawks did not offer Coyle a restricted free agent tender.

Coyle made the Seahawks as an undrafted rookie in 2014. He’s played in 35 games and seven postseason games and recorded his first career sack last season.

    I was gonna make fun of Seattle fans because we added one of your guys, but they have no idea who he is. They’ll just say “he sucked anyways. I’ve been a fan since 1976, so I know, even if I was born in 1996.”

    Ok special teams guy but not a starter, which means he’s instantly your best LB

    He’s been good on special teams. That’ll help the Niners who will be punting a lot.

    exactly Osiris, you gotta feel bad for these poor niner fans tho, a true dumpster fire continues unabated for the last two decades. They have all this money and they don’t know how to spend it. They paid an overrated fullback like he’s the second coming of Marshawn Lynch…….SAD

    Good hard player. Not a starter.

    Wow seattle trolls are out in full force on niner news.

    Well since the first comment was a diss against Seahawk fan, and the lil guy is wearing a Hawk uni…..is it really trolling. Clara sure knows how to spend that 100 mil under the cap.

    I predicted that the Seahawks would not be able to sneak him past waivers. Coyle played well in 2015, when Wagner was recovering from a turf toe that sidelined him for several games. I am glad the Niners got him. They really need to add depth in the ILB position since they let Gerald Hodges and Michael Wilhoite go as free agents.

    Considering a couple recent 49er signings, I’m surprised it’s not Brady Coyle.

    … make that Brodie Coyle…. you know what I mean…

    Wow how much of a podunk town is Seattle for them to have an inferiority complex about the location of the Niners stadium? Must be all the meth.

    And with Hoyer and Coyle the Niners final pieces are in place. They’re almost guaranteed a top 3 pick again next year.

    I hope to hear a big time signing from the Niners. They haven’t signed any huge contracts yet – maybe they’ll get Hightower.

    This Brock costs a lot less than the other Brock, i.e. Osweiler.
