The San Francisco 49ers announced an addition to their 90-man offseason roster Friday afternoon. Defensive lineman Kapron Lewis Moore has signed a reserve/future contract. This will go along with Tuesday’s signings of offensive tackle Christian DiLauro, tight end Marcus Lucas, cornerback Tarvarus McFadden, wide receiver Jordan Smallwood, guard Najee Toran, and safety Terrell Williams.
As Fooch noted Tuesday, these contracts usually do not include any guaranteed money, but instead are placeholder contracts for the offseason workout program and training camp. Reserve/future contracts are used for players who were not on a 53-man roster at the end of the previous season, and primarily are used on recent practice squad players.
Here’s the rundown on Lewis-Moore from the 49ers including his college and NFL experience:
Lewis-Moore (6-4, 315) was originally drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the sixth round (200th overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft. In three seasons with the Ravens (2014-16), he appeared in five games and registered five tackles. He signed with the Chicago Bears on January 6, 2017, was waived by the team on August 29, 2017 and later signed to the Ravens practice squad on October 10, 2017, where he spent the remainder of the season. He then signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars on February 6, 2018, was placed on the Injured Reserve List on July 31 and was later released on August 9.
A 28-year-old native of Weatherford, TX, Lewis-Moore attended the University of Notre Dame (2008-12), where he appeared in 45 games (42 starts) and registered 180 tackles (79 solo), 12.0 sacks, 22 tackles for a loss, five forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries.
