The San Francisco 49ers announced Thursday they had signed a free agent safety to a one-year contract.
And no, it’s not Charles Woodson. The 49ers announced they have reached a deal to re-sign Darcel McBath.
McBath appeared in all 16 regular season games and three playoff games for the 49ers last season. He made a key tackle of Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker on a fake field goal try in the first half of the Super Bowl that helped allow the 49ers to remain within reach for their second half comeback.
McBath was non-tendered by the 49ers making him an unrestricted free agent. McBath recorded just seven tackles on the season serving primarily on special teams.
The 49ers have now signed two safeties in the last week after having Woodson in for a free agent visit. The market remains quiet for Woodson with the 49ers being his only scheduled visit so far in free agency.
