The San Francisco 49ers made a roster move on Tuesday, signing cornerback Kyle Sebetic to their practice squad. According to Aaron Wilson, the team worked him out on Monday, before making the decision today to add him.
Sebetic (6'0, 197 lbs) originally signed with the New York Giants in 2014 as an undrafted free agent. The Giants waived him on near the end of training camp that year. He spent a week on the team's practice squad in November, but was otherwise a free agent. He signed with the Green Bay Packers in March 2015, but was part of final roster cuts in early September. He signed to Green Bay's practice squad on October 14 and was waived on December 8.
There's not a whole lot of information about Sebetic, as he appears to have flown under the radar in college at Dayton. Our friends at Big Blue View wrote about him leading up to 2014 training camp, and Acme Packing Company had some thoughts about Sebetic after Green Bay signed him.
Cornerbacks Tramaine Brock and Dontae Johnson were both listed on last week's injury report, but were probable and played. Sometimes a practice squad signing indicates a need for depth due to injury. In this instance though, the 49ers current practice squad did not have a defensive back on it. I could see the addition being mostly to add a body for the scout team.
The 49ers practice squad currently has eight members:
QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson
WR DiAndre Campbell
TE Jamie Childers
OT Donald Hawkins
DT Kaleb Ramsey
DL Marcus Rush
CB Kyle Sebetic
NT Garrison Smith
