SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) -The San Francisco 49ers re-signed linebacker Roderick Green on Wednesday, bringing back a solid pass rusher who was cut in training camp.
Green had been out of football since failing to make the 49ers' roster in final cuts. The fourth-year pro was claimed off waivers from Baltimore last year, and had 4 1/2 sacks in nine games with San Francisco.
Only six NFL teams have fewer sacks per passing play than the 49ers (2-6), whose defense has slumped during their six-game losing streak.
San Francisco had a spare roster spot after placing left tackle Jonas Jennings on injured reserve on Monday.
The 49ers also signed guard Sean Estrada to the practice squad. The rookie free agent was cut during training camp.
The moves also mean the 49ers will keep fullback Zak Keasey on the active roster while cutting ties with linebacker Hannibal Navies, who has a knee injury. Keasey was signed from the practice squad to the active roster before each of the 49ers' last three games.
