The 49ers announced on Thursday that they have re-signed Shayne Skov. It’s a one-year deal for the linebacker.
Skov spent the last three seasons with the Niners, but he was dropped from the roster in May as the team made way for a host of undrafted free agents. The 6’3″, 247-pound ‘backer has appeared in 24 games for SF with two tackles on defense and 12 tackles on special teams.
Skov has ties to the area as a San Francisco native and Stanford University product. At Stanford, he had 355 tackles, 40.5 tackles for loss, 17 sacks, five forced fumbles, and 13 passes defensed.
Skov will give the Niners another linebacker to evaluate in camp after they dropped injured LBs Donavin Newsom and Jayson DiManche.
