49ers Claim Sheldon Day From Jaguars

The 49ers claimed defensive lineman Sheldon Day off waivers from the Jaguars, the team announced on Monday.Sheldon Day

Day was waived on Saturday when the Jaguars activated rookie Dede Westbrook. A fourth-round selection in 2016 coming out of Notre Dame, Day has appeared in 22 games, logging 11 tackles, two sacks and one pass defensed. With the move, the second-year defender will be reunited with San Francisco defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, who spent three seasons in Jacksonville as a linebackers coach before heading west.

A Second Team All-American at Notre Dame, Day posted 15.5 tackles for loss as a senior in 2015, the most by a Fighting Irish player since Derek Landri in 2006.

    Wonder when Tank will be activated or if he even will. I actually really like out front 7 when all are healthy but our secondary is terrible. We should go hard after a corner back or two in free agency especially with guys like Trumane Johnson out there. With all the cap we have and good draft picks we will have we should be able tot turn that defense aground and the o line as well.
