Reportedly, the 49ers have added more depth to their defense this offseason.
NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo reported Saturday, citing sources, that the 49ers have agreed on a contract with defensive back Myles Hartsfield.
The terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
Signed as an undrafted free agent in 2020, Hartsfield has spent the past three seasons with the Panthers and is coming to San Francisco after Carolina refused to offer the 25-year-old despite rumors of a return from both sides.
The defenseman had his most productive year during the 2022 NFL season, totaling 59 tackles, two passes defensed and one forced fumble in 15 games played.
With the 49ers, Hartsfield reunites with former Panthers defensive coordinator and interim head coach Steve Wilks, who is now San Francisco’s defensive coordinator following the departure of DeMeco Ryans.
Hartsfield now joins a 49ers defense with a bevy of new faces, including former Atlanta Falcon Isaiah Oliver, former Pro Bowl selection Javon Hargrave and former No. 4 overall pick Clelin Ferrell.
