49ers sign DB Jarnor Jones to practice squad; release LB Ben Boulware

Sep 12, 2017 at 1:11 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers have announced the signing of defensive back Jarnor Jones to the team's practice squad. To make room for the addition, they have released linebacker Ben Boulware, who was officially signed to the 49ers practice squad seven days ago.

Jones (6-3, 209) was originally signed by the Atlanta Falcons as an undrafted free agent on May 1 and later waived by the team on September 1. He spent two seasons (2015-2016) at Iowa State University after stops at North Carolina State University (2012-13) and Georgia Military College (2014).

With the Iowa State University, he appeared in 24 games, had 11 starts, and registered 78 tackles, 11 passes defensed, three sacks, and one interception.

Boulware was originally signed as an undrafted free agent out of Clemson by the Carolina Panthers following the draft. He saw limited action during the preseason and had just one tackle for Carolina during that time. Boulware was released by the Panthers on September 2.

In 2016, Boulware led the Tigers with 131 tackles in 14 starts while recording 11.5 tackles for loss and four sacks. It was enough to be named the Jack Lambert Award winner. The two-year starter for Clemson recorded 352 tackles, 26 for a loss, 8.5 sacks, five interceptions, 41 quarterback pressures, 10 passes defensed, six forced fumbles, and four fumble recoveries over 53 games and 31 starts during his college career.

Boulware was named the defensive MVP for the Tigers in the 2017 College Football Playoff National Championship.

49ers re-sign LB Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles to a one-year deal

The San Francisco 49ers announced they have re-signed linebacker Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles to a one-year deal. They opted not to tender the defender, initially a restricted free agent. That allowed allowing Flannigan-Fowles to become an unrestricted free agent and re-sign with the Niners on what we can presume is a more team-friendly deal. San Francisco signed Flannigan-Fowles (6-2, 223) as an undrafted free agent out of Arizona in 2019. He registered 22 tackles, a tackle for a loss, a sack, and a quarterback hit through 17 game appearances with the 49ers last season, per Pro
