SANTA CLARA, Calif .– The San Francisco 49ers continued their commitment to hold their own on Monday, bringing Jaquiski Tartt back to safety.
Tartt has agreed to a one-year deal that will keep him in San Francisco for a seventh season, the team said.
“We are very pleased to have Jaquiski back on our team,” said General Manager John Lynch in a statement. “Jaquiski is an extremely experienced and versatile player who has excellent communication skills for our defense. Welcome back Quiski!”
To keep Tartt, the 49ers have the option of running it back with the same security quartet they started with last season when he switched to Jimmie Ward, Marcell Harris and Tarvarius Moore.
The Niners agreed on a one-year contract with Tavon Wilson on Monday. Wilson is expected to be fighting for a roster slot.
Along with Tartt, the Niners have devoted most of their free-agent resources to maintaining the left tackle against Trent Williams, full-back Kyle Juszczyk, corner kicks Jason Verrett and Dontae Johnson, and the defensive tackle against DJ Jones.
The 49ers originally picked Tartt in the second round of the 2015 NFL draft.
Tartt’s time with the Niners was interrupted by injuries such as shoulder, forearm and toe problems. He finished three seasons with an injured reserve and appeared with the team in only 36 of 64 possible games in the last four seasons.
In 2020, Tartt ended up in an injured reserve in November because he was limited to 30 tackles and one interception in seven games due to turf toes.
The 29-year-old Tartt has 301 tackles, four interceptions and four sacks in 66 games.
