Update: The San Francisco 49ers officially announced the signing of tight end Levine Toilolo to a one-year deal, which was first reported by Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The team waived safety Cameron Glenn to make room on the roster.


Toilolo (6-8, 268) spent his first five NFL seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, including the two seasons when 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan was the offensive coordinator with the team.

San Francisco already has one of the league's best tight ends in George Kittle and added Kaden Smith out of Stanford via the draft. The team also has veteran Garrett Celek.

The Falcons made Toilolo a fourth-round selection out of Stanford in 2013. He registered 21 receptions for 263 yards with a touchdown through 16 games and 10 starts with the Detroit Lions in 2018. Toilolo has caught 95 passes for 986 yards with eight touchdowns through his six NFL seasons.

Toilolo was the highest-graded pass blocker (87.0 grade) among tight ends while hauling in 21 of his 24 targets with no drops last season, according to Pro Football Focus.

The 49ers initially signed Glenn as an undrafted free agent out of Wake Forest University on May 3.
