49ers re-sign long snapper Taybor Pepper to a 2-year deal

Feb 4, 2021 at 8:40 AM--


Long snapper Taybor Pepper revealed via Twitter on Thursday morning that he has re-signed with the San Francisco 49ers. It is a two-year deal, according to his agent.


The signing means that the 49ers' specialists — Pepper, kicker Robbie Gould, and punter Mitch Wishnowsky — are all signed through the 2022 season.

The Green Bay Packers signed Pepper as an undrafted free agent out of Michigan State in January of 2017. He spent time with the Miami Dolphins before signing with the 49ers on September 30, 2020.

Pepper, 26, appeared in 12 games for San Francisco this past season. He was scheduled to become a restricted free agent next month.

The 49ers Communications staff provided the following rundown.



Pepper originally entered the NFL after signing with the Green Bay Packers to a Reserve/Future contract on January 27, 2017. He appeared in four games for Green Bay in 2017 prior to being placed on the Injured Reserve List on November 3, 2017. He later signed a Reserve/Future contract with the New York Giants on December 31, 2018, and was waived by the Giants on August 31, 2019. Pepper signed with the Miami Dolphins on September 2, 2019, where he went on to appear in all 16 games for the Dolphins. He was waived by Miami on May 27, 2020.

A 26-year-old native of Saline, MI, Pepper attended Michigan State University where he played in all 54 games at long snapper and registered 10 tackles on special teams. His 54 games played for the Spartans were tied for the most among any player in school history.

Jimmy Garoppolo is setting himself up for a nice payday next year. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback is scheduled to be a free agent, and his market is expected to be much improved compared to this past offseason. Garoppolo expected to be elsewhere this season, even after his trade stock plummeted following offseason shoulder surgery. With no one interested in a quarterback going through rehab, Garoppolo signed a restructured one-year deal with the 49ers to serve as Trey Lance's backup. The one caveat being that San Francisco couldn't use the franchise tag on him in 2023, allowing him to test the free agent market freely. Garoppolo entered the season looking to support Lance and do what he could in his role as QB2. However, everything changed in Week 2 when
