49ers Sign DT Willie Henry To Futures Deal


The San Francisco 49ers officially signed DT Willie Henry to a futures contract for the 2020 season on Wednesday.

The full list of futures players’ the 49ers have signed include: 

  1. DE Jonathan Kongbo
  2. DB Derrick Kindred
  3. DB Chris Edwards
  4. OT Leonard Wester
  5. DT Willie Henry

Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.

Henry, 25, is a former fourth-round pick of the Ravens back in 2016. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $2,723,393 rookie contract and was set to make a base salary of $720,000 for the 2019 season when Baltimore cut him loose coming out of the preseason. 

The 49ers brought him in for a workout earlier this month after leaving tryouts for the  Eagles, Patriots, Cowboys, Bills, Texans, and Raiders throughout the season without a contract. 

In 2018, Henry appeared in three games for the Ravens and recorded three tackles and one sack.
