The 49ers are adding talent to their defense.
NFL Media's Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport reported Monday that outside linebacker Samson Ebukam and the 49ers have agreed to a two-year, $12 million contract that can be worth up to $13.5 million with incentives.
Ebukam, 25, recorded 31 tackles and 4.5 sacks last season with the Los Angeles Rams. The edge rusher has recorded 14.0 sacks in his four-year NFL career. He also has 28 QB hits, including seven last season.
In two games against the 49ers last season, Samson recorded three tackles, one QB hit and one pass defensed.
Ebukam had a 56.9 Pro Football Focus grade in 2020.
