49ers among teams interested in David Amerson

Getting fired is never a great feeling, but there is an upside for NFL players who get released between the Super Bowl and the start of the new league year.

There’s a lot less competition for jobs than there is when free agency opens up, which means that you get a lot of eyes on you once you hit the open market. Cornerback David Amerson is in that position right now.

He’s visited with the Bears and Texans and reportedly has other meetings lined up. None of those is with the 49ers, but that could change.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports that Amerson’s agent included the Niners on a list of teams that have expressed interest in his client. Amerson was released by the Raiders last week after he missed 10 games during the 2017 season.

Ahkello Witherspoon, Greg Mabin and K'Waun Williams are the 49ers corners under contract for next season.

  1. The 49ers have not extended the contracts of those defensive backs who will be free agents, and they have not extended Carlos Hyde yet. May be they are evaluating whether to re-sign these players or move on.

    Amerson really is a disappointment, he has all the tools but he lacks heart.
    Perfect fit for the 49ers.

    You might want to worry about your old, injured and declining team! You’ll lose Graham, Sheldon richardson, Paul Richardson, etc. not to mention Avril and Chancellor’s careers are likely over with major injuries. You’re headed for the basement so enjoy the ride, your team is done!

  4. The Niners brought in nearly 35 new players last year – if you include the guys that they IR’d like Malcolm Smith and Joe Williams, etc. I don’t see the Niners resigning any of the free agents they have in the secondary – I’m not even sure that Jimmie Ward will be back. Via the draft and FA I think you’ll probably see three new guys to go with Colbert, Tart, Witherspoon and K’waun Williams.

  5. I remember him saying getting cut by Washington was a wake up call and he quit playing video games and started to take football more seriously. It showed on the field until he got paid. Then he looked just like he did in Washington.

  6. That pic says it all.

    Perfect defense. Had that ball picked the whole time it was in the air. Stood there flat footed and waited for the ball to get there. The WR went up and got it for a TD.
