49ers Sign S Lewis Baker and LB Mark Washington

Not major news, but the 2009 roster is beginning to take more and more of a defined shape. I don't believe that either of these players will be stealing much time from the usual starters, but quality bodies on the practice squad with enough skill to challenge our starters during the week is very important. Terms of the contracts were not announced.

Safety Lewis Baker (6-2, 202 lbs) rejoins San Francisco after being signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the 49ers out of Oklahoma in 2008. He spent training camp with San Francisco and was released prior to the start of the 2008 regular season. Baker played in 50 career games with 19 starts at Oklahoma, seeing action at both safety and linebacker.  

Linebacker Mark Washington (6-3, 245 lbs) was originally signed as a free agent by the 49ers following the 2007 supplemental draft out of Texas State-San Marcos. He spent 12 weeks on San Francisco’s practice squad that year before being signed to the active roster by the Miami Dolphins. Washington went on to play in three games in 2007 for the Dolphins.
