Per Howard Blazer, the San Francisco 49ers have traded for lef...have signed long snapper Jon Condo. The 38-year old Condo has been to the Pro Bowl twice in his career. The Dallas Cowboys signed him after the 2005 NFL Draft as an undrafted free agent. From 2006-17, he was with the Oakland Raiders. In 2018, Condo was with the Atlanta Falcons, so there is your connection.

The 49ers waived long snapper Colin Holba in the corresponding move. Holba was filling in for Kyle Nelson, who is currently serving a ten-game suspension. Holba was signed back in early December 2018 when the 49ers found out about the suspension. Nelson still has four games remaining on his suspension and is expected to resume those duties, considering he signed a four-year extension through 2022.

There is the news you’ve all been waiting for, a new long snapper! The 49ers have just confirmed this signing as well. Condo will wear No. 59.

The team also signed OT Will Holden to the practice squad. Holden (6-7, 312) was originally drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in the fifth round (157th overall) of the 2017 NFL Draft. He appeared in 11 games (seven starts) for Arizona prior to being waived by the team on July 20, 2019. Holden was claimed off waivers by the Miami Dolphins on July 21 and later waived on August 27. He then signed with the Seattle Seahawks on August 29 and was waived on August 31.

A 26-year-old native of Green Cove Springs, FL, Holden attended Vanderbilt University (2012-16) where he appeared in 48 games (35 starts). Holden will wear No. 62. Holden played 147 snaps in 2018 for the Cardinals, with a PFF grade of 45.7.
