49ers sign tight end MyCole Pruitt to a one-year deal

Jun 2, 2021 at 2:54 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers are signing veteran tight end MyCole Pruitt, per the player's agent. The team worked out Pruitt on Wednesday, and the tight end visited with the Baltimore Ravens last week.


The 49ers later announced the signing of Pruitt to a one-year deal.

San Francisco also reportedly worked out veteran tight end Delanie Walker on Wednesday. It is unknown if anything will come of that.

The Minnesota Vikings made Pruitt a fifth-round selection out of Southern Illinois in 2015. He recorded five receptions for 49 yards with two touchdowns through 11 games with the Titans in 2020 and has been with Tennessee since 2018. Before that, the tight end spent time with the Chicago Bears and Houston Texans.

Pruitt, 29, has caught 32 passes for 343 yards with four touchdowns through his six NFL seasons. His Pro Football Focus run-blocking grade of 74.3 ranked seventh among NFL tight ends last season. However, Pruitt's pass-blocking grade saw a significant drop since back-to-back seasons in 2018 and 2019 with a grade of 79.0 or higher. That mark fell to 52.9 in 2020.

When Javon Kinlaw first joined the San Francisco 49ers, his defensive line coach, Kris Kocurek, would show him film of a younger Ndamukong Suh. Kinlaw watched Suh and Nick Fairley, two players who worked with Kocurek, in their prime. Kinlaw admired their violent playing style and ability to frustrate opposing offensive lines. The young defensive lineman was inspired. Kinlaw wants to be that type of player. He wants to one day be among the best ever to play the position. That, of course, means hard work and no time off. That has been the story of his offseason. Kinlaw hasn't had any breaks. He's been at the team's facility every day since February, working on improving. It's a much better situation than last offseason when he couldn't work in person with the team
