49ers re-sign defensive lineman Damontre Moore; place Ronald Blair on injured reserve

Nov 13, 2019 at 10:17 AM--

It looks like defensive lineman Damontre Moore, a preseason fan-favorite, is rejoining the San Francisco 49ers, according to the player's agent.

The move comes after the loss of defensive end Ronald Blair, who suffered a season-ending torn ACL during Monday night's overtime loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Shortly after the reported move, the 49ers officially announced that Moore has been signed to a one-year deal and the team has placed Blair on injured reserve.

Moore spent this past offseason with the 49ers. A former third-round pick by the New York Giants in 2013, he has also played for the Miami Dolphins, Seattle Seahawks, Dallas Cowboys, and Oakland Raiders. The Raiders released him on December 24, 2018.

Moore caught on with the San Diego Fleet of the now-defunct Alliance of American Football league for the startup's abbreviated inaugural season. The 49ers initially signed Moore on April 5 and waived him on August 31 as part of the team's 53-player roster cut-down.

Moore has recorded 83 tackles, 10 sacks, four passes defensed, and two forced fumbled through six NFL seasons.

Blair finishes the season with 21 tackles and three sacks through nine games this season, his fourth with San Francisco since the team made him a fifth-round draft pick out of Appalachian State in 2016.

San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh spoke with team reporter Keiana Martin as part of this week's State of the Franchise event. Saleh was asked how his group follows up a season during which the defense finished as the No. 2 ranked unit in the league. And how does it do so amid an abnormal offseason limited by the COVID-19 pandemic? "It's really the same message we've been having since the first day we arrived in that you just want to try to get better every single day," Saleh said. "Ignore the stats, ignore the noise, ignore all the things that people try to perceive you as, and focus on what you can do as an individual to get a little bit better every single day."

San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh is likely on a path to a head coaching job in the NFL. That could happen sooner rather than later. That could have happened in January, but the Cleveland Browns opted to go with former Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski over Saleh. That bought 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan at least another year with his defensive coordinator. Shanahan didn't hide his excitement after Saleh didn't get the job. "I was pumped," Shanahan told reporters in January. "... I was extremely excited. I definitely have some empathy for Saleh. I know anyone who goes through that process and stuff, we're all competitive,
