After the Cardinals declined to tender him as a restricted free agent, wide receiver Trent Sherfield is staying in the NFC West.

Per NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo, Sherfield will sign a one-year deal with the 49ers.

After entering the league in 2018 as an undrafted free agent, Sherfield had spent his three seasons with Arizona. He’s played most of his snaps on special teams for the past two years, but he has caught 28 passes for 340 yards with a touchdown in his career.

In 2019, Sherfield played 43 percent of Arizona’s special teams snaps. That figure went up to 50 percent in 2020, while he was on the field for just seven percent of the Cardinals’ offensive reps.

  1. Trent is a class act. Made it the hard way, and has lots ahead of him. Mistake by Cardinals to let him get away.

  2. Seems like a great special teamer with a chance to play WR in certain formations. Ultimately, 49ers ST needed a boost and they got it. You know AZ would have preferred to keep him…

  3. I don’t even like the Santa Clara football team but even I’m getting embarrassed for them at this point. The Cards #4 / practice squad WR is the big FA pick-up? Wow. Creating an art form out of tanking.

    Any more embarrassing than your team being referred to as the “One Year Dynasty” ?

  5. Hey Niners… Hey, hey, hey!!!! What are you doing nabbing one of AZ’s WR’s? (Why we outta). Actually Sherf is a great person and am happy to see him land with a class organization. Pls take good care of him and enjoy his production. Looking forward to our games in 2021.
