The San Francisco 49ers officially signed DB Derrick Kindred to a futures contract for the 2020 season on Friday.
Here’s the updated list of futures signings for the 49ers:
- DE Jonathan Kongbo
- DB Derrick Kindred
Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.
Kindred, 25, is a former fourth-round pick of the Browns back in 2016. Cleveland waived him back in April and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Colts.
Indianapolis elected to cut Kindred during the preseason and he was later claimed by the Jets. Unfortunately, New York moved on from his soon after.
In 2018, Kindred appeared in all 16 games for the Browns and recorded 43 tackles, one interception, a forced fumble and a pass defense. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 90 safety out of 93 qualifying players.
