Fooch’s update: The 49ers announced the signing. Also, he’s the 89th player, not 90.
The San Francisco 49ers is officially filling the last spot on their 90-man roster. The team is signing offensive lineman Mike Person, according to NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport.
It has been a winding road through the NFL for Person, who originally entered the NFL as a seventh round pick of the 49ers. The team drafted him in 2011, and after a year with the team was released at the end of 2012 training camp. He then spent a week with the Indianapolis Colts, a little over a season with the Seattle Seahawks, a season with the then St. Louis Rams, and season and a half with the Atlanta Falcons, a couple months of a season and offseason with the Kansas City Chiefs, and then 12 games last season again with the Colts.
Over seven seasons, he has appeared in 43 games with 18 starts. He originally entered the league as a tackle, but his past two seasons of play have been at center. Most notably, he started 14 games at center for the 2015 Falcons. Their offensive coordinator that year was Kyle Shanahan.
This is likely for at or near the league minimum, but if it is for more than that, it’s worth noting this does not impact the comp pick formula anymore. The deadline for that was Tuesday.
