Before the 2016 offseason program kicks off on April 4, look back at previous years on the practice fields.
The San Francisco 49ers announced on Monday that offensive lineman Jordan Devey has signed a one-year exclusive rights tender.
The 49ers acquired Devey (6-6, 320) in a trade with the New England Patriots on Aug. 18, 2015. Last season, he appeared in 15 games (nine starts) with the 49ers along the offensive line. He originally signed with Baltimore as an undrafted free agent on May 3, 2013, and spent training camp with the Ravens before being waived on Aug. 30. He was signed to the Raven’s practice squad on Sept. 1, 2013, and was waived the following day. Devey was signed to the New England Patriots practice squad on Sept. 3, 2013, where he spent the remainder of the season. In 2014, he saw action in seven games (four starts) along the offensive line for the Patriots.
A 28-year-old native of American Fork, UT, Devey played two seasons at Snow College (Ephraim, UT) before transferring to the University of Memphis. In his two seasons with the Tigers (2012-13), he started all 24 games he appeared in, earned Second-Team All-Conference USA honors in 2013, and started at left guard for the East team at the 2013 East-West Shrine Game.
