49ers Sign Special-Teamer Don Jones

The 49ers have agreed to a deal with special teams ace Don Jones, the club announced. Jones, a safety by trade, signed a two-year pact.Don Jones (Vertical)

Jones, 26, has played for two clubs per season in each of the last three years. That’s the life of pure special teamer who doesn’t often see the field on defense. Since entering the league, Jones has only started one career game, and that came last year with the Texans. Overall, Jones played on nearly 40% of Houston’s special teams snaps despite appearing in only nine games with the team after being cut by Cleveland.

San Francisco ranked 17th in special teams DVOA in 2016, and was below-average on both kick and punt returns.

    Keep the moves coming. Love most of them except Barkley lol. Hopefully we as a real solid defensive player like Poe soon and maybe even a offensive lineman

    We need to sign another really good player and have a good draft and it will be a good start
