The San Francisco 49ers officially announced the following roster moves.

  • CB Luq Barcoo and WR Devin Funchess have been signed to the practice squad
  • WR Austin Watkins Jr. has been released from the practice squad

Two moves, the ones involving Funchess and Watkins, were reported yesterday. However, the Barcoo signing was not previously reported.

The 49ers Communications staff provided the following rundown.

Barcoo (6-1, 175) originally entered the NFL after signing with the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent on April 27, 2020. He appeared in three games (one start) and registered 10 tackles and one pass defensed as a rookie. Barcoo was waived by the Jaguars on August 19, 2021, and claimed off waivers by the Arizona Cardinals the following day. He went on to spend time on the Cardinals practice squad and was later released from the team on October 12.

A 23-year-old native of Chula Vista, CA, Barcoo attended San Diego State University for two years (2018-19), where he appeared in 24 games (13 starts) and finished with 75 tackles, 20 passes defended, and 0.5 sack. He transferred to San Diego State after two years (2016-17) at Grossmont (El Cajon, CA) College.

Funchess (6-4, 225) was originally drafted by the Carolina Panthers in the second round (41st overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft. Throughout his six-year career with the Panthers (2015-18), Indianapolis Colts (2019), and Green Bay Packers (2020), he has appeared in 62 games (41 starts) and registered 164 receptions for 2,265 yards and 21 touchdowns. He has also started four postseason contests and added nine receptions for 152 yards and one touchdown. After spending 2020 on the Reserve/COVID-19 Opt-Out List, he was later released by Green Bay on August 27, 2021.

A 27-year-old native of Farmington Hills, MI, Funchess attended the University of Michigan, where he appeared in 37 games (25 starts) and finished with 126 receptions for 1,715 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Watkins Jr. (6-3, 210) signed to the team's practice squad on November 3, 2021.
