The 49ers included a dozen roster moves in the announcement confirming they have exercised their option on defensive lineman Arik Armstead‘s contract for the 2019 season.
Seven of those moves involved undrafted rookies joining the team. The 49ers have signed Houston wide receiver Steven Dunbar, San Diego tight end Ross Dwelley, Dartmouth quarterback Jack Heneghan, South Carolina offensive lineman Alan Knott, Syracuse offensive lineman Jamar McGloster, Frostburg State defensive lineman Niles Scott and Houston safety Terrell Williams.
They have to earn their position every week. Davis drove two hours each way to practice while she was attending college in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. She wouldn’t get home until past midnight, and had to get up the next morning early to go to class. Last Halloween, she pulled all-nighters for three days in a row because she was in charge of making her field group’s Halloween costumes. At night, she hot glued Peter Pan and dwarf costumes together, and during the day she struggled to stay awake in class. I came to class one day and my eyes were bloodshot, and people were like, are you on drugs?
If he gets one, it won’t be for a while. General Manager Brandon Beane said on WGR Monday that the team wants to see how Benjamin fits into new offensive coordinator Brian Daboll’s system over the coming months before opening up talks about a new deal.
Benjamin joined the Bills in a trade with the Panthers during the 2017 season and caught 16 passes for 217 yards and a touchdown while dealing with a knee injury. Benjamin had surgery after the season, but has been at offseason workouts with the team this month.
Benjamin is set to make just over $8.45 million after the fifth-year option on his rookie deal was exercised. Benjamin is joined at the top of the receiver depth chart by Zay Jones and the Bills drafted a pair of receivers on Saturday to flesh out a thin group.
