49ers re-sign DE Cassius Marsh to a two-year deal

Feb 7, 2018 at 12:23 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have re-signed an ex-Patriots player that was acquired mid-season last year. No, not that one.

The 49ers announced that the team has re-signed defensive end Cassius Marsh to a two-year deal.

"Since joining the team late last season, Cassius has impressed us with his unique skill set and the tremendous energy and passion he brings to all phases of the game," said 49ers general manager John Lynch via a statement issued by the team. "Cassius is a great example of our desire to reward our own players with contract extensions as we continue to build out our roster. We're excited to have him as a 49er moving forward."

The 49ers initially claimed Marsh off of waivers from the New England Patriots on November 22, 2017. He appeared in each of San Francisco's final six games of the season. During that time, he registered 11 tackles, two sacks, and two forced fumbles.


Marsh entered the NFL as a fourth-round draft pick by the Seattle Seahawks in 2014. He played college football at UCLA before spending three seasons with Seattle. On September 2, 2017, the Seahawks traded Marsh to the Patriots in exchange for 2018 fifth- and seventh-round draft picks. He played in nine games with New England with one start and was credited with 14 tackles and a sack before being waived on November 21, 2017.

In four NFL seasons, Marsh has compiled 85 combined tackles, six sacks, and four forced fumbles. He was scheduled to become a free agent in March.

ESPN predicts 49ers' Kyle Shanahan as Coach of the Year based on NFL feedback

This could be an interesting year for San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan. He has just one winning record in his four seasons with the team. Many will argue that last season was a fluke. It was a six-win campaign marred by a historic number of injuries. The team had just come off a Super Bowl appearance, but the injuries completely transformed the roster by Week 2. Most expect the 2021 49ers to more resemble their 2019 counterparts than last season's version. And now, Shanahan has a new toy to feature in his offense—No. 3 overall pick Trey Lance. Lance won't start. That job belongs to veteran quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Lance will see the field,

The San Francisco 49ers announced three practice squad players being protected this week as the team prepares for its Week 1 matchup against the Detroit Lions. They are wide receiver Travis Benjamin, quarterback Nate Sudfeld, and cornerback Dee Virgin. Benjamin could provide the 49ers with some punt return flexibility heading into Sunday's game. Sudfeld could be insurance in case rookie Trey Lance is unavailable. Lance suffered a chipped bone in the index finger of his throwing hand during San Francisco's preseason finale. Cornerback Emmanuel Moseley is dealing with a hamstring injury, which might explain the decision to protect Virgin. NFL teams can protect up to four practice squad players per week from being signed by other teams. In addition, teams can
