Former Eagles DT Hassan Rideway Agrees to Terms with 49ers
Former Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Hasan Ridgeway, has agreed to terms with the San Francisco 49ers.
ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that the deal is for one-year and worth $1.2 million, wiyh $1 million in guaranteed money.
The 27-year old played in all 17 regular-season games last season. The defensive tackle accumulated 20 tackles (one for loss), two sacks and one forced fumble.
He has been a solid rotational piece for the team, but has struggled to stay on the field due to injury, missing 18 games during his three seasons in Philadelphia.
He is known as more of a run-stuffing defensive tackle and should fill that role in San Francisco.
The Eagles will have to find someone to replace him in the defensive tackle rotation, after he appeared on roughly a third of the Eagles' defensive snaps last year.
The Eagles could bring in a veteran free agent, find someone in the draft or turn to 2021 sixth-round draft pick Marlon Tuipulotu (6'3/305), to step into that rotational run-stuffing role in 2022 with Fletcher Cox and Javon Hargrave.
