49ers sign punter Justin Vogel to a one-year deal

Mar 19, 2019 at 3:37 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have signed former Green Bay Packers punter Justin Vogel to a one-year deal, the team announced on Tuesday.

The 49ers were without a punter after allowing Bradley Pinion to leave via free agency. He signed a four-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after four seasons in San Francisco.

The 49ers also officially announced the re-signing of restricted free agent running back Raheem Mostert, news that was first reported last week by his agent.

Below is a rundown of Vogel's football career, as provided by the 49ers Communications staff.

Vogel (6-5, 220) originally entered the NFL after signing with the Green Bay Packers as an undrafted rookie free agent on May 5, 2017. He appeared in all 16 games as a rookie and punted 71 times for 3,155 yards (44.4 average), posted a 41.6 net average and had 19 punts downed inside the 20-yard line. A 2018 Pro Bowl alternate, his 41.6 net punting average ranked seventh in the NFL and was the highest by a Packers punter since 1976, while his two touchbacks on the season were the fewest by a Green Bay punter with at least 70 punts. Vogel was waived by Green Bay on May 4, 2018 and was later claimed off of waivers by the Cleveland Browns on May 7, 2018. After spending training camp with Cleveland, he was waived on September 1, 2018.

A 25-year-old native of Tampa, FL, Vogel attended the University of Miami where he played in 39 games and registered 183 punts for 7,876 yards, a 43.0 average and had 67 punts inside the 20. As a senior in 2016, he appeared in 13 games and registered 64 punts for 2,803 yards and a career-high 43.8 gross average, which ranked second in the ACC.

The San Francisco 49ers never received a trade offer that made them reconsider their stance that Deebo Samuel must remain on the roster. He's not just a wide receiver for the team. Last season, Samuel showed that he could do it all, contributing 1,770 all-purpose yards and 14 total touchdowns receiving and rushing during his breakout third-year campaign. The 2022 NFL Draft is behind us, and Samuel remains on the roster after recently requesting to be traded. The 49ers hope to mend the relationship between team and player. However, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, Samuel remains intent on leaving the 49ers. "It appears he is still dug in, still wants to be traded
