49ers sign Ray-Ray Armstrong to two-year extension
The 49ers announced Monday that they have signed linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong to a two-year contract extension.
Armstrong has been on the team’s injured-reserve list since September due to a chest injury. The 49ers claimed Armstrong via waivers in Nov. 2015.
He had nine tackles, one fumble recovery and one interception in two games this season before the injury.
“Ray-Ray had a strong offseason and was off to a good start in 2016 prior to being sidelined for the season due to injury,” 49ers General Manager Trent Baalke said in a statement. “He has continued to work hard in his rehab and is a young player with a bright future in front of him. We look forward to his continued development and contributions, both on and off the field.”
Before the extension, Armstrong would have been eligible for free agency following the season.
Also Monday, the 49ers added linebacker Carl Bradford via waivers and signed tight end Jim Dray. Tight end Blake Bell and linebacker Nick Bellore were placed on IR.
