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.

San Francisco 49ers fans are confident their team will emerge with a victory over the Dallas Cowboys this weekend, the opening weekend of the NFL playoffs. Kyle Shanahan's squad has become a bit of a sexy Wild Card pick. The Cowboys are favored by three points, and the Niners are the road team. They boarded a Dallas-bound plane after Friday's practice and enter the matchup with a lot of confidence. The 49ers also could be healthier than they have been all season. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is still dealing with a thumb injury, but he delivered a gutsy performance in last weekend's regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams. He's just one of the



Packers praise 49ers WR Deebo Samuel: 'One of the more elite players in this league'

There's something significantly different about San Francisco 49ers on offense this week compared to where they were when they played the Green Bay Packers in Week 3 of the regular season. That difference is the role of wide receiver Deebo Samuel, whose emergence as a running back throughout the course of the season makes the 49ers more difficult to stop than they were when they fell 30-28 to the Packers at Levi's Stadium on September 26. Samuel had two carries for zero yards in that game, giving him a total of four carries for eight yards over his first three games. He had six total carries over his first nine games before exploding over the second half of the season to finish with 59 carries for 365 yards and eight touchdowns to go with his receiving stats of

On January 30, the San Francisco 49ers will play the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium for a chance to return to the venue two weeks later to play in Super Bowl LVI. This Niners season could be considered one of the greatest runs in NFL history. They aren't a top seed, division winner, or the most dominant team in the league. This year, they went from a struggling team to becoming the most-feared team in the postseason. After suffering an embarrassing 31-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 9, the 3-5 49ers' season looked to be on the brink of disaster going into a Monday night matchup with the hated 7-2 division rival Los Angeles Rams. Pat McAfee and A.J. Hawk of the Pat McAfee Show both picked the Rams to beat the 49ers, while shows such as

On Thursday, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel took to social media to defend his quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo, from critics. Garoppolo is one of the last four starting quarterbacks still preparing to play a game. This weekend, his Niners will travel to Southern California to face the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship Game. Many within the media have created the narrative that the talented 49ers have carried Garoppolo to this point, that the team is winning despite Garoppolo and not because of him. Samuel told Garoppolo's critics to check the only statistic he cares about—wins and
