The San Francisco 49ers will be without starting safety Jaquiski Tartt for the rest of the season after Tartt went down during Week 9 after suffering from a turf toe injury. On Tuesday, San Francisco lost safeties Johnathan Cyprien and Jared Mayden to the injured reserve. The Niners will need someone to help on their special teams’ units and fill Cyprien and Mayden’s void.

The 49ers are bringing in safety Deiondre Hall for a workout, according to NFL Draft Diamonds. Hall was drafted in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears. He’s played 87 snaps in his career and has been out of the NFL since 2018. He has not played more than seven snaps during the regular season since his rookie year with Chicago.

That season, the Bears lined Hall up as an outside cornerback, slot corner, and even as a dime linebacker. Hall also played on special teams, which is where he’d likely end up playing with San Francisco if he were to sign. Hall’s combine testing numbers show he’s a good athlete. As evidenced by his 4.68 40-yard dash, he’s not a burner, but Hall jumped 37” in the vertical, ran a 4.06 short shuttle, and had a 7.07 3-cone at just over 6’ and a shade under 200 pounds.
