Jun 20, 2016 at 2:28 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers announced the re-signing of RB Kendall Gaskins to two-year deal on Monday.

Gaskins was waived by the team on May 6 in order to make room for 12 undrafted free agent signings. After spending 2014 on the 49ers practice squad, Gaskins appeared in nine games in 2015 and had 38 yards rushing in 16 attempts after being promoted to the active roster on October 31.

The team had an open roster spot after RB Jarryd Hayne abruptly retired to pursue playing in the 2016 Summer Olympics. Other running backs on the 49ers roster include Carlos Hyde, Shaun Draughn, DuJuan Harris, second-year player Mike Davis, and rookie Kelvin Taylor.

Gaskins played college football at Richmond and went undrafted in 2013. He has spent time on the roster or practice squad of the Buffalo Bills, Tennessee Titans, and New York Giants.
