Rams Claim NT Mike Purcell Off Waivers From 49ers

The Los Angeles Rams officially claimed NT Mike Purcell off of waivers from the 49ers on Wednesday.

Purcell, 25, wound up signing on with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Wyoming back in 2013. He was unable to make the 53-man roster during his rookie season but was later signed to their practice squad.

Purcell returned to San Francisco on a future/reserve contract and eventually worked his way onto the active roster towards the end of the 2014 season.

The 49ers re-signed him to a one-year exclusive rights contract a month ago.

In 2016, Purcell appeared in 15 games for the 49ers and recorded 26 tackles, no sacks and a forced fumble.
