The San Francisco 49ers announced Friday that they’ve re-signed S Dexter McCoil and placed rookie S Terrell Williams on injured reserve with a knee injury.
McCoil, 26, wound up going undrafted out of Tulsa back in 2013. He signed on with the Edmonton Eskimos in 2014 and played safety for them during his two years in the CFL.
The Chargers signed him to a future/reserve contract last year only to cut him loose during the season. McCoil was claimed off of waivers by the 49ers, but was waived after this year’s draft.
In 2017, McCoil appeared in 10 games for the Chargers and 49ers, and recorded five tackles and no interceptions.
