49ers claim CB Parnell Motley off waivers from Buccaneers

Oct 13, 2020 at 1:51 PM--

According to Field Yates of ESPN, the San Francisco 49ers have claimed rookie cornerback Parnell Motley off of waivers from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Buccaneers signed Motley (6-0, 180) as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma. In four seasons with the Sooners, he registered 176 tackles, 7.5 tackles for a loss, six interceptions, a touchdown, 33 pass breakups (fifth in school history), six forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries.

As a senior, Motley earned first-team All-Big 12 honors from the media and second-team honors from conference coaches.

The Buccaneers waived Motley on Monday and was a candidate to be signed to Tampa Bay's practice squad. The 22-year-old defender made the 53-man roster and contributed exclusively on special teams in his two game appearances (Weeks 3 and 4).

The 49ers have been devastated by injuries at cornerback. Richard Sherman has not played since Week 1, Dontae Johnson (groin) was inactive on Sunday against the Dolphins, and Emmanuel Moseley has been attempting to return from a concussion he sustained in Week 3.

K'Waun Williams, the 49ers' primary slot corner, landed on short-term injured reserve with an ACL sprain. Ahkello Witherspoon played through a hamstring injury against the Dolphins after Brian Allen started and struggled in his first in-game action since 2018.

Can the San Francisco 49ers pass the football deep downfield? Are they capable of it? Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice wonders that. A lot of fans wonder that too. The team certainly doesn't take a lot of deep shots against opposing defenses. They took one on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints, though, and it did not go well. Wide receiver Richie James had Saints safety Marcus Williams beat deep. Niners quarterback C.J. Beathard, out of the shotgun, threw the football toward the open receiver. "Toward." As in, in the direction of but not on target. Beathard underthrew the football, and San Francisco, once again, missed out on a big opportunity. It was Beathard's only snap of the game.
