San Francisco 49ers signing veteran safety Tony Jefferson

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the San Francisco 49ers have signed veteran safety Tony Jefferson.

Jefferson most recently played for the Baltimore Ravens, but he hasn't played since sustaining a torn ACL in 2019.
In February 2020, he was released by the team.

Jefferson, 29, signed a four-year, $19 million contract with the Ravens in 2017, but he never lived up to his billing as a prized free-agent acquisition.
He failed to make impact plays on a consistent basis, totaling two interceptions, two forced fumbles, and 11 passes defensed in 35 games.

 

 

Jefferson spent his first four seasons with the Arizona Cardinals after going undrafted in 2013.
Jefferson has 450 tackles, four interceptions, and 22 passes defensed in seven seasons.
