The 49ers have replaced their replacement.

With news that Ziggy Ansah has torn his bicep and will miss the remainder of the season, the Niners are taking another crack at filling the vacant edge rusher slot, signing former Raider Alex Barrett. Barrett has been signed and released by the 49ers four times over the past five years before his promotion from the practice squad on Tuesday.

Barrett, 26, joined the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Raiders practice squad in 2019, but has never appeared in a regular season game. Barrett replaces Ansah who was himself brought in due to long-term injuries to Nick Bosa (ACL), Solomon Thomas (ACL) and Dee Ford (Back/Neck).
