The 49ers lost a number of rotation pieces on their defensive line this offseason, but reportedly re-signed a key veteran on Friday.

Kerry Hyder will return to San Francisco on an undisclosed deal according to Ian Rapoport. Along with Drake Jackson, Hyder will likely be a primary backup on edge behind Nick Bosa and Clelin Ferrell.

This is the third contract Hyder has signed with the 49ers, first joining the team in 2020, then playing a year with the Seahawks before re-signing with SF on a one-year deal last season.

Hyder had a breakout year in 2020 with 8.5 sacks, but hasn’t been able to reach anything near that production since. Hyder played just 36% of the team’s defensive snaps last season, nearly half of what he did during his first go-around in 2020. He had one sack in 16 games played.
