49ers sign DT Robert Nkemdiche to one-year deal

Jul 26, 2022 at 11:31 AM--


General manager John Lynch announced that the San Francisco 49ers have signed defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche (KIM-dee-chee), a former first-round draft pick, to a one-year deal. He was one of three defensive linemen who worked out for the team on Monday.

It was reported last week that the team was signing Nkemdiche, but Lynch insists the decision didn't come until this week.

"I know it was reported last week, but that person must have been Nostradamus because we had a workout," Lynch said. "We had not decided. There were three guys here working out. He did shine in the workout, so he'll be a part of us moving forward. We're excited about that."

The Arizona Cardinals drafted Nkemdiche (6-3, 296) out of Ole Miss with the No. 29 overall pick in 2016. He registered 15 tackles, a quarterback hit, and a pass defensed through nine game appearances with the Seattle Seahawks last season, per Pro Football Reference.

Nkemdiche's best season came in 2018 with Arizona, when he had 32 tackles and 4.5 sacks on his way to a career-high Pro Football Focus grade of 58.1.

Nkemdiche, 27, has recorded 59 tackles, 10 tackles for a loss, 11 quarterback hits, 4.5 sacks, and three passes defensed in 38 game appearances (six starts) through his five NFL seasons with the Cardinals, Miami Dolphins, and Seahawks.

Schefter: Commanders were set to send multiple picks to 49ers for Jimmy Garoppolo before surgery nixed deal

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch never named the specific teams expressing interest in Jimmy Garoppolo earlier in the offseason. Last week, ESPN's Tim Keown and Nick Wagoner revealed that the Niners expected the quarterback to be shipped to the Washington Commanders, an option that evaporated when Garoppolo opted to undergo shoulder surgery. Today, ESPN's Adam Schefter revealed some more minor tidbits about the trade that never happened. "The deal would have involved multiple draft picks, according to sources," Schefter wrote, "but was disrupted by the surgery to Garoppolo's throwing shoulder, which prompted the Commanders to move on from their

It wasn't from the Week 1 loss to the Chicago Bears. Willis was inactive for the game. The 49ers didn't learn about the injury until Monday. Willis will undergo a "clean-up procedure," and the team placed him on its injured reserve list. #49ers DE
