49ers To Re-Sign Jaquiski Tartt

The 49ers aren’t done signing safeties. After adding Tavon Wilson earlier this morning, the team is now keeping one of their own in the fold. San Francisco is re-signing Jaquiski Tartt, sources told Peter Schrager of NFL Network (Twitter link).

Schrager reports it’s a one-year deal, although financial terms weren’t immediately available. The 49ers drafted Tartt 46th overall back in 2015, and he’s been a starter for them almost ever since. He started about half his games in his first two years, but has started every game he’s appeared in over the past four.

Injuries have limited him, as he hasn’t played in more than 12 games since 2016. Last year he started seven games before turf toe landed him on IR. He had 30 tackles, four passes defended, and an interception in those seven games.

John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan have made retaining their own guys a priority this offseason, re-signing players like Trent Williams, Jason Verrett, Kyle Juszczyk, and others. Tartt, a Samford product, turned 29 last month.
