49ers sign DB Derrick Kindred to reserve/futures contract

Jan 3, 2020 at 6:21 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have signed former Cleveland Browns defensive back Derrick Kindred to a reserve/futures contract, according to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.


The Browns made Kindred a fourth-round selection out of TCU in 2016. He registered 45 combined tackles, a pass defensed, an interception, and a forced fumble through 16 games and two starts with the Browns in 2018. Kindred has recorded 148 combined tackles, 12 passes defensed, two interceptions, and a forced fumble during his three NFL seasons.

The Browns waived Kindred on April 1, 2019, and the defensive back spent the next four months with the Indianapolis Colts and a brief stint with the New York Jets before being waived on August 31, 2019.

Kindred is the second player this week signed by San Francisco to such a contract. The 49ers also signed former CFL defensive end Jonathan Kongbo to a reserve/futures contract.

A reserve/futures contract keeps a player tied to a team but doesn't go into effect until the start of the new league year.

The team used the vacant roster spot to sign offensive lineman Senio Kelemete to a one-year deal. Skule suffered a torn ACL during practice on Monday, June 7. Safety Tarvarius Moore was injured during the same session, suffering a torn Achilles. Last week, he underwent successful surgery to repair the damage. San Francisco made



PFF lists Jimmy Garoppolo's contract as 49ers' worst, Jason Verrett's as the best

Brad Spielberger of Pro Football Focus examined the NFC and named each team's best and worst contracts. He only looked at veteran contracts because, obviously, rookie deals offer great value. What makes a good contract? Value compared to production. It can't take up a lot of a team's salary cap, regardless of the position. However, you have to compare the contract to others who play the same position. "If an elite quarterback was making $30 million per year, with where the market is at this point at quarterback, that's great value relative to the position market," wrote Spielberger. So, which players are listed for the San Francisco 49ers? The best
