49ers sign offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill after AAF disbands

49ers

The 49ers signed offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill, who most recently played for the San Diego Fleet of the now-defunct Alliance of American Football.

Brunskill (6-foot-5, 260 pounds) spent the past two seasons on the Atlanta Falcons’ practice squad after entering the NFL in 2017 as an undrafted rookie from San Diego State.

He started eight games with the Fleet as an offensive tackle.

Brunskill becomes the second former member of San Diego's AAF franchise to sign with the 49ers. The club last week signed defensive lineman Damontre Moore to a one-year deal. Moore recorded seven sacks for the Fleet during their eight-game season.

The 49ers worked out Brunskill earlier this week and announced on Friday he was signed to a one-year contract.

Brunskill appeared in 54 games at San Diego State after switching from tight end to offensive line prior to his senior season. As a senior in 2016, he earned second-team All-Mountain West honors after starting 14 games along the offensive line.
