Blair was expected to re-sign with the 49ers back in April but apparently things hit a snag. Instead, he lands back with his longtime former defensive coordinator, new Jets HC Robert Saleh.
Blair has been out since 2019 while rehabbing an injury. However, if he’s healthy he could be a nice rotational piece for New York.
Blair, 28, is a former fifth-round pick of the 49ers back in 2016. He played out his four-year, $2.61 million contract and made a base salary of $630,000 in 2019 and re-signed on a one-year deal last offseason.
Blair was cut by the team back in March a few weeks before he was scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent.
In 2019, Blair appeared in nine games and recorded 21 total tackles, seven tackles for loss, three sacks, and one fumble recovery.
