49ers announce the signing of DE Dion Jordan to a 1-year deal. Jordan was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft but has bounced around from Miami to Seattle to Oakland. He'll offer some depth and competition at EDGE behind the likes of Nick Bosa, Arik Armstead, Dee Ford and Ronald Blair III. Niners hoping to avoid situation like late last season when injuries ravaged their depth on the edge and their defense hit a lull as the pass rush disappeared for a short stretch.

49ers offensive tackle Shon Coleman is a last-minute opt out for the 2020 NFL season. Coleman informed the team of his decision on Thursday, just before the deadline. Coleman joins wide receiver Travis Benjamin as the only two Niners to opt out for the season. Coleman is a cancer survivor, who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia when he was 18. The Niners have a bit less depth at offensive tackle now but should be OK with Justin Skule, Daniel Brunskill and Colton McKivitz as depth.

Oft-injured TE Reed agrees to deal with 49ers

Jordan Reed and the 49ers have reached agreement on a one-year contract that is heavy on incentives for the tight end, who has a lengthy concussion history.

49ers general manager John Lynch said no players have informed him that they are opting out for the season as of yet.
