The San Francisco 49ers have been very busy so far during free agency. The team has announced that it has signed former Houston Texans DB Don Jones to a two-year deal.

Jones was drafted out of Arkansas State by the Miami Dolphins in the seventh round of the 2013 NFL Draft. The 26-year-old has played in 56 games during his career and registered 37 tackles and one forced fumble on special teams. In 2016, Jones played in nine games for Houston and tied for the team lead with 11 special teams tackles.

Jones has also spent time with the New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints, and Cleveland Browns. Last season, he played four games with Cleveland before being released on October 4. Jones was then signed by Houston on October 19 and appeared in the final nine games of the season as well as both of the team's playoff games.
