49ers sign CB Darqueze Dennard to a one-year deal

Mar 25, 2022 at 2:18 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers announced the signing of cornerback Darqueze Dennard to a one-year deal. He played 21 snaps as an emergency replacement last season during the 49ers' Week 18 win over the Los Angeles Rams. While Dennard was active for the team's two final playoff games, he did not play a defensive snap in either matchup.

The 49ers Communications staff provided the following rundown.



Dennard (5-11, 202) was originally drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals with the 24th overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft. Throughout his eight-year career with the Bengals (2014-19), Atlanta Falcons (2020), New York Giants (2021) and 49ers (2021), he has appeared in 87 games (30 starts) and registered 288 tackles, 27 passes defensed, four interceptions (one returned for a touchdown), two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. He has also played in one postseason contest and added two tackles and one forced fumble.

In 2021, Dennard spent time on the Indianapolis Colts and Giants practice squads and appeared in one game with the Giants prior to being released from the team on December 28, 2021. He then signed to the 49ers practice squad on January 4, 2022 and later appeared in one game for the team and registered one tackle.

A 30-year-old native of Jeffersonville, GA, Dennard attended Michigan State University, where he appeared in 44 games (40 starts) and finished with 167 tackles, 20 passes defensed, three forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and 1.0 sack.

One week after Washington Commanders star receiver Terry McLaurin was a no-show at mandatory minicamp, the 26-year-old reached an agreement with the organization, signing a three-year, $71 million deal, according to Adam Schefter. Further contract details came out about McLaurin's deal, as Schefter revealed that the former Ohio State receiver got a $28 million signing bonus, which serves as the largest of all time by a receiver. Additionally, McLaurin gets $53.154 million guaranteed, penciling right behind fellow fourth-year receiver A.J. Brown, who received a four-year, $100 million deal from the Philadelphia Eagles with $57 million guaranteed. Here's the full

Another NFL wide receiver has seen his bank account grow this offseason. Earlier today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Washington Commanders are signing Terry McLaurin to a three-year extension worth up to $71 million in new money with $53.2 million guaranteed. That's nearly $23.7 million annually in potential new cash and about $17.7 million in new guaranteed money. Meanwhile, everyone is still waiting to see how the San Francisco 49ers resolve their situation with their star wideout, Deebo Samuel. It wasn't that long ago that he requested to be traded after watching several of his peers earn big paydays this offseason. Many, including star tight end George Kittle,



One area Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers must improve

Two massive games. Two double-digit 4th quarter leads. Two heart-breaking losses. You can stop right there and fans of the San Francisco 49ers know exactly what you're talking about. Painfully, the franchise that once referred to itself as "Camelot," and became the first NFL team to win five Super Bowls, has experienced some difficult losses. There were three consecutive heartbreaking losses in the Jim Harbaugh days. And now Kyle Shanahan's 49ers have lost two big games, Super Bowl LIV in February 2020, and the NFC Championship Game earlier this year. And we're not even discussing the dark years when the team struggled under the likes of Dennis Erickson, Mike Nolan, Jim Tomsula, and Chip Kelly. Those names make me want to throw up.

Bruschi: 49ers' Trey Lance has 'most to prove' among second-year QBs

The quarterbacks from the 2021 draft class will be linked together and compared for a long time. Most received a significant amount of playing time during their rookie seasons. The one who did not was San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance. He started just two games and spent most of his freshman NFL season learning behind veteran Jimmy Garoppolo. The upcoming season will be different, though. Lance is slated to become the 49ers' full-time starter, with Garoppolo likely to be shipped out of Santa Clara. One ESPN analyst believes Lance has the most to prove among the 2021 first-round quarterback class that also includes Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, Justin Fields, and Mac Jones. "He is the one that has the most to prove because you almost have to prove your
