Details on the 49ers roster move on Tuesday to add a safety to the team's 10-man practice squad.



The San Francisco 49ers announced on Tuesday that they have signed safety Vinnie Sunseri to the team’s practice squad. 

Sunseri (6-0, 210) was originally drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the 5th round (167th overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft out of the University of Alabama. He saw action in nine games for the Saints in 2014 where he registered five tackles on defense and six tackles on special teams. After missing the entire 2015 season, he was released by New Orleans on April 25, 2016 and then signed with the New England Patriots on July 24, 2016. Following his release from the Patriots on Sept. 3, he was added to the team’s practice squad on Sept. 6 and was later released on Oct. 24.

At the University of Alabama, Sunseri appeared in 34 games (14 starts) where he registered 105 tackles, 12 passes defensed, four interceptions, 1.5 sacks, three fumble recoveries and one forced fumble.
