Report: 49ers Sign Former Colts S Antoine Bethea To Four-Year Deal

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the San Francisco 49ers signed former Colts S Antoine Bethea to a four-year, $23 million deal.

With S Donte Whitner reportedly signing a four-year, $28 million deal with Cleveland, the 49ers were left with a huge void at the back end of their defense, as the only other safeties on the roster with substantial experience were second-year S Eric Reid, and S Craig Dahl, who recently took a $525,000 pay cut.

Bethea has spent his entire eight-year career with the Colts, and put up a solid season last year registering 110 combined tackles and 2 interceptions.

We have Bethea at #62 in our 2014 Top 100 Free Agent List.
