49ers re-signing DE Ronald Blair to a one-year deal, per report

Mar 17, 2020 at 11:16 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers are re-signing defensive end Ronald Blair to a one-year deal, preventing him from hitting free agency, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.


Blair, 27, landed on injured reserve on November 13, 2019, after suffering a torn ACL during Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks. The fact that Blair could not be brought in for a physical may have impacted his market. The defender last week posted a video of himself running just four months after the injury.

There was some concern that the Cleveland Browns might try to sign Blair away from San Francisco. The Browns have two former 49ers assistants on their coaching staff. Former defensive backs coach Joe Woods is the team's defensive coordinator while pass-rush specialist Chris Kiffin was hired to be the defensive line coach.


The 49ers made Blair a fifth-round selection out of Appalachian State in 2016. He finished this past season with 21 combined tackles and three sacks through nine games.

Blair has recorded 88 combined tackles, 13.5 sacks, and a forced fumble through his four NFL seasons, and proved himself to be a valuable part of the 49ers' defensive line rotation.

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 5 contest against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Today's practice report looked very much like what head coach Kyle Shanahan previewed beforehand. There was no Jimmy Garoppolo, as the quarterback continues to recover from a calf injury. "I mean, it could go up to game time," Garoppolo said before practice about Sunday's game status. "We've done it before up to game time. And it's really just about getting the mental reps while I can out there today, see where I'm at tomorrow and everything." There was no Trent Williams, who, like Garoppolo, was injured this past weekend against the Seattle Seahawks. San Francisco continues to be cautious

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 5 contest against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Things are starting to trend towards rookie quarterback Trey Lance making his first NFL start. Jimmy Garoppolo missed his second consecutive practice after suffering a calf injury during Week 4. That makes it unlikely the veteran starter will be healthy enough to lead the offense against the Cardinals. Tight end George Kittle also missed his second consecutive practice. He is dealing with the same calf injury that sidelined him for most of last week. However, he still played this past weekend against the Seattle Seahawks. If Lance does start, he will probably have left tackle Trent Williams helping keep
