“I was up in the air,” he explained. “I wasn’t absolutely sure since of me coming off the injury. I wasn’t absolutely sure they’d want me back again right here or not. They did. That was a fantastic matter for me. I felt like I left a ton on the discipline previous yr so I’m happy to be again below.”

The 49ers on Monday signed nine-calendar year veteran Tavon Wilson. Young safeties Tarvarius Moore and Marcell Harris are also on the roster to compete for employment along with setting up free safety Jimmie Ward.
