The San Francisco 49ers added some depth to their offensive line Friday.
NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported that the Niners are signing veteran offensive lineman Senio Kelemete, per a source informed of the situation.
The signing comes after San Francisco saw swing tackle Justin Skule go down with a torn ACL.
Kelemete provides flexibility, having played both guard and tackle during his nine-year career. In stints with the Cardinals, Saints and Texans, the lineman compiled 42 career starts.
Last year in Houston, the 31-year-old made five starts at left guard. In San Francisco, Kelemete will provide a veteran depth with the ability to fill in as a starter if needed.
