The San Francisco 49ers announced that they have signed defensive lineman Darryl Johnson to a one-year deal and waived wide receiver Shae Wyatt. The moves come as the team begins its mandatory minicamp, with practices on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The 49ers Communications staff provided the following rundown.

Johnson (6-6, 253) was originally drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the seventh round (225th overall) of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Throughout his four-year NFL career with the Bills (2019-20), Carolina Panthers (2021), and Seattle Seahawks (2022), he has appeared in 38 games (one start) and registered 21 tackles and 2.0 sacks.

Johnson was waived by the Carolina Panthers on August 30, 2022, and was claimed off waivers by the Seahawks the following day. He went on to appear in four games (one start) and recorded three tackles.

A 26-year-old native of Kingsland, GA, Johnson attended North Carolina A&T University for four years (2015-18), where he appeared in 36 games (24 starts) and added 116 tackles, 19.0 sacks, six passes defensed, five forced fumbles, and three fumble recoveries. He earned All-American and All-MEAC honors as a junior in 2017.

Wyatt (6-0, 188) originally signed with the team as an undrafted rookie free agent on May 2, 2023 out of Tulane University.
