The San Francisco 49ers announced Thursday that they’ve officially signed veteran DE/OLB Elvis Dumervil to a two-year contract and waived OL Evan Goodman in a corresponding move.
“Elvis is a proven pass rusher in this league whose credentials speak for themselves,” said 49ers General Manager John Lynch. “We are ecstatic to add another piece to what we feel is shaping up to be a formidable defensive front.”
Dumervil, 33, is a former fourth-round pick of the Broncos back in 2006. He spent six years in Denver before signing a five-year, $26 million contract that included $8.5 million guaranteed with the Ravens.
Baltimore cut him loose this past March in a move that freed up $6 million of available cap space.
Unfortunately, Dumervil’s 2016 season was limited to just eight games, as he spent half of the year on the PUP list. In 2016, Dumervil appeared in eight games for the Ravens and recorded 11 tackles, three sacks, two forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery.
