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.
