49ers re-sign Ross Dwelley, Marcell Harris to one-year deals

Mar 5, 2021 at 2:14 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have announced the team has re-signed tight end Ross Dwelley and safety Marcell Harris to one-year deals. Both were scheduled to become restricted free agents.

The 49ers have declined the 2021 option for linebacker Mark Nzeocha, who becomes a free agent. He was scheduled to have a base salary of $1.45 million and count $1.6 million against the salary cap this year.

San Francisco signed Dwelley as an undrafted free agent out of San Diego in 2018. He registered 19 receptions for 245 yards with a touchdown through 16 games with the 49ers in 2020. Dwelley, 26, has caught 36 passes for 350 yards with three touchdowns through his three NFL seasons.

The 49ers made Harris a sixth-round selection out of Florida in 2018. He registered 37 tackles, three passes defensed, and two forced fumbles through 16 games this past season. Harris, 26, has recorded 111 tackles, eight passes defensed, and five forced fumbles through his three NFL seasons.

San Francisco initially signed Nzeocha off of the Dallas Cowboys practice squad on September 25, 2017. He registered 19 tackles, two passes defensed, a sack, one interception, and one forced fumble through 47 games and three starts over the past four seasons. The linebacker also added 20 tackles on special teams.

The 49ers weren't sure exactly what they were going to get when they signed cornerback Darqueze Dennard late last season during a period of absence among the team's defensive backs, but he was able to deliver beyond their expectations, perhaps putting him in a position for a significant role on this year's squad. The 49ers added Dennard to their practice squad on January 4 of 2022 while multiple cornerbacks were dealing with illness and injury. They later elevated him to the active roster for the team's regular season finale, a 27-24 road overtime win over the Rams that helped push the 49ers into the playoffs. Dennard played 21 defensive snaps in that game and raised some eyebrows among the team with his performance -- both during the game and in practices
