The 49ers added a veteran piece to their pass rush on Monday.

The team announced that they have signed Elvis Dumervil. Word of a planned workout with the team broke last week and it would appear that the Niners liked what they saw from the former Bronco and Raven edge rusher.

Dumervil missed eight games last season due to a foot injury and closed the year with two of his three sacks in the final three weeks of the regular season. He was released in March as Baltimore started getting younger on defense and had a quiet couple of months before landing with the Niners.

Dumervil, who played with 49ers General Manager John Lynch in Denver, will join Arik Armstead, DeForest Buckner, Aaron Lynch and others as defensive end options in Santa Clara this season.

  1. While the Seahawks and PFT are worried about the Kaep situation, the Niners keep making great moves. Good signing. Lynch is doing a great job so far!

  2. Armstead, Buckner, Thomas, Dumervil, Lynch….that line is looking strong. 49ers are coming to play. Forget the past 2 years, this is a completely new team. Gonna surprise some people.

  3. If they limit his snaps and make him a pass rush specialist I can see him giving them a few years of quality production.

    Rebuilding teams need guys like this that know their craft and can be an example for a young team. Especially in the 9ers case who have a very young front.

  4. if he even can get a few sacks, he will be better than most of the pass rushers in the roster. To date, we haven’t seen a thing from Tank Carradine or Eli Harold

  5. Looks like they will transitioning slowly from 34 to 43…Elvis has played both, but actually seems to fit better as 34 OLB than 43 DE. Guessing they will be very much a hybrid this year, and he will just be a pure pass rush-only guy.

    At least it wasn’t a Pats fan this time. They seem to make everything about themselves these days.

  8. He will be playing similar to how Fred Dean played for the Niners late in his career, coming in fresh on obvious passing downs such as 3rd and long.
