Darcel McBath DB SF 11 Months

49ers released S Darcel McBath (foot) with an injury settlement.

McBath was sent to injured reserve last week, but can now re-sign with the 49ers when he's healthy. McBath was one of the 49ers' top special teamers last season.

49ers placed S Darcel McBath on injured reserve with a left foot injury, ending his season.

McBath, a key special teams player, was re-signed to a one-year contract in March, but he injured his foot while covering a punt against the Chiefs last week. The 27-year-old played just six snaps on defense this preseason.

49ers re-signed S Darcel McBath to a one-year contract.

McBath wasn't tendered an offer as a restricted free agent last week, so he's likely coming back at the veteran's minimum. The former second-round pick out of Texas Tech doesn't contribute much on defense, but he's a key special teams player for the Niners. McBath recorded seven tackles last season.

49ers signed S Darcel McBath.

Other than quality special teams work, McBath has put nothing on tape since the Broncos took him in the second round of the 2009 draft. The Niners appear to be taking a flier while they wait for FS Dashon Goldson to sign his franchise tender.

Jaguars waived S Darcel McBath.

McBath, 26, has been a bust as the 48th overall pick in the 2009 draft. Though more quietly than Knowshon Moreno, he was one of Josh McDaniels' bigger blunders in Denver. McBath has started one game through three NFL seasons.

Jaguars signed DB Darcel McBath, formerly of the Broncos.

The Jags announced McBath as a cornerback, even though he mostly played safety at Texas Tech and with the Broncos. He'll give Jacksonville a three-game audition to perhaps be a member of the 53-man roster in 2012.

Broncos waived S Darcel McBath.

Denver's 2009 second-round haul will go down as one of the worst draft rounds in NFL history. McBath, Richard Quinn, and Alphonso Smith are all gone before their third season with the Broncos. McBath has been held back by injuries, but he at least led the team in special teams tackles as a rookie. The other two contributed nothing.
