49ers sign LB Ray-Ray Armstrong to a 2-year extension

Dec 19, 2016 at 3:38 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers announced today that they have signed ILB Ray-Ray Armstrong to a two-year extension through the 2018 season.

"Ray-Ray had a strong offseason and was off to a good start in 2016 prior to being sidelined for the season due to injury," said general manager Trent Baalke in a statement released by the team. "He has continued to work hard in his rehab and is a young player with a bright future in front of him. We look forward to his continued development and contributions, both on and off the field."

Armstrong suffered a pectoral tear during the second half of the 49ers' Week 2 loss to the Carolina Panthers and was placed on injured reserve on September 20. He arrived in San Francisco after the 49ers claimed him off of waivers from the Oakland Raiders in November of 2015. He was not selected in the 2013 NFL Draft, but was signed as an undrafted free agent by the then-St. Louis Rams.

In two game appearances this season, Armstrong had nine tackles, one fumble recovery, and the first interception of his career. He appeared in five games and recorded three special teams tackles last season with the 49ers. Throughout his four-year career, Armstrong has appeared in 48 games and started five. He has 56 tackles, one sack, one interception, one forced fumble, and two fumble recoveries during that time.

Some fans are a bit too quick to write off defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw, feeling that he is yet another first-round misstep by the San Francisco 49ers. However, head coach Kyle Shanahan still believes in him and feels the defender's injury setbacks can still be overcome. Kinlaw entered the draft as a raw but physically gifted prospect that could develop into a force along the defensive line. That development has been stalled as the 49ers do what they can to manage the second-year player's injury. Kinlaw sustained a knee injury on December 20, 2020, against the Dallas Cowboys, forcing him to miss the season's final two games. He underwent a procedure after the 2020 season and then had what was described as a minor procedure to reduce swelling in the knee later in

On Tuesday, the San Francisco 49ers waived cornerback Davontae Harris, a day after activating the defender from injured reserve. Today, the team announced that it signed Harris to the practice squad. San Francisco initially claimed Harris (5-11, 200) off waivers from the Baltimore Ravens on August 17. He landed on injured reserve on September 1 due to a hamstring injury. The 26-year-old cornerback has recorded 50 tackles, four passes defensed, and a forced fumble through his three NFL seasons. In addition to the 49ers and Ravens (2020), the fourth-year player spent time with the Cincinnati Bengals, the team that made him a fifth-round draft pick out of Illinois State in 2018, and the Denver Broncos
