The San Francisco 49ers have signed former Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive tackle Leonard Wester to a reserve/futures contract, according to Chris Biderman of the Sacramento Bee.


The Buccaneers signed Wester as an undrafted free agent out of Missouri Western in 2016. He signed on with the Jacksonville Jaguars on April 4, 2019, but was waived with an injury designation during the team's roster cuts on August 31, 2019, and reverted to injured reserve.

The Buccaneers waived Wester with an injury settlement on September 6, 2019.

Wester has appeared in 27 games with one start in his three NFL seasons from 2016 through 2018.

Wester is the fourth player the 49ers have signed to a reserve/futures contract this month. The team also signed defensive end Jonathan Kongbo, defensive back Derrick Kindred, and defensive back Chris Edwards.

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.
