49ers sign G Brian De La Puente to future contract

New, comments

We have our first "blast from the past" signing of the offseason.  The 49ers announced they've signed former Cal Bear, guard Brian De La Puente to a future contract.  Basically that means they have his rights and if he makes the team, he'll get an actual contract.  The 49ers originally signed DLP (much easier to type) as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2008.  He had his ups and downs in training camp, and made it to the last round of cuts.  The 49ers could not sneak him through waivers though, as he was signed by the Chiefs to their active roster.

Since then DLP has spent time on the Seahawks and Panthers practice squads.  DLP is 6'2, 308 lbs, and given some of the question marks at the guard position, should get a decent shot to provide some depth for the team out of training camp.
