The 49ers re-signed linebacker Mark Nzeocha to a one-year deal, the club announced Friday.

The 49ers originally acquired Nzeocha early in the 2017 season when he was signed off the Dallas Cowboys’ practice squad. He was originally a seventh-round draft pick of the Cowboys in 2015.

Nzeocha (6-foot-3, 240 pounds) appeared in 10 games with the 49ers and recorded four tackles on special teams. He was scheduled to be an exclusive rights free agent this offseason.

Nzeocha, 28, was born in Germany, where he played club football and was a member of the German National Team. He appeared in 39 games with 26 starts at Wyoming.
