Bergstrom, 34, is a former third-round pick of the Raiders back in 2012. He played out his rookie contract with the Raiders before signing a two-year, $5.75 million deal that included $1.5 million guaranteed with the Texans back in 2016.

Bergstrom was set to make a base salary of $1.25 million for the 2017 season when the Texans released him. From there, he played for the Cardinals and Ravens before catching on with Washington in 2017. 

The Washington Football Team re-signed him on two consecutive one-year contracts before signing with the 49ers’ practice squad as a free-agent back in October. He’s bounced on and off San Francisco’s active roster this season. 

In 2019, he appeared in all 16 games for Washington and started six at guard. 

Boddy-Calhoun, 26, wound up signing on with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent out of Minnesota back in 2016. He was waived a few months later and claimed off of waivers by the Browns.

After being declined a restricted contract by Cleveland, he signed a one-year deal with the Texans back in March but was among their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason. 

The Texans re-signed him back in March of 2019 but cut him loose after claiming CB Vernon Hargreaves off waivers from the Buccaneers. The Colts signed him toward the end of last season but declined to tender him a qualifying offer as a restricted free-agent. 

In 2019, Boddy-Calhoun appeared in three games for Houston and Indianapolis and recorded 13 total tackles, two sacks, and one forced fumble.
