According to Howard Balzer, the San Francisco 49ers brought in 14 free agents for workouts on Wednesday including:
- CB Alex Carter
- CB Michael Jordan
- CB Tarvarus McFadden
- S Marwin Evans
- S Nick Orr
- S Terrell Williams
- LB Travis Feeney
- LB James Onwualu
- QB Jack Heneghan
- QB Nic Shimonek
- QB Logan Woodside
- TE Ben Koyack
- TE Marcus Lucas
- RB Jeremy Langford
Of this group, the 49ers signed McFadden to their practice squad on Thursday.
Langford, 26, was taken with the No. 106 overall pick in the fourth round of last year’s NFL draft by the Bears. He was in the second year of his four-year, $3.139 million rookie contract and set to make a base salary of $615,000 for the 2017 season when the Bears cut him loose coming out of the preseason.
The Ravens signed Langford to their practice squad soon and was on and off of the unit before eventually catching on with the Jets in December. New York brought Landford back on a futures deal this past January but cut him loose before the draft.
Langford signed on with the Dolphins this summer but was among their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason.
In 2016, Langford appeared in all 16 games for the Bears and recorded 62 rushing attempts for 200 yards (3.2 YPC).
Koyack, 25, is a former seventh-round pick of the Jaguars back in 2015. He was waived a few months later and signed to the Jaguars practice squad.
Jacksonville brought Koyack back on a futures contract the following season and he managed to make the 53-man roster each of the past two seasons. The Jaguars signed him to a one-year exclusive rights contract back in April only to waive him from injured reserve with a settlement at the start of the regular season.
In 2017, Koyack appeared in 16 games for the Jaguars and caught five passes for 38 yards receiving and no touchdowns. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 35 tight end out of 71 qualifying players.
