Right after paying his full NFL profession in the Jap time zone, Tyler Kroft is heading west.

The veteran restricted conclusion has agreed to terms on a one particular-yr deal with the San Francisco 49ers, per his agent Mike McCartney. The staff has due to the fact announced the news.

Kroft has manufactured a lengthy job out of filling the role of a traditional limited stop for the Bengals, Costs and Jets from 2015-2021. He is averaged just 14 receptions for every time, but his 2017 output of 42 catches, 404 yards and seven touchdowns in Cincinnati stands as proof he can grow to be a high-quality receiving option when called on.

Kroft heads to San Francisco, wherever Kyle Shanahan values lesser-identified restricted ends to participate in reverse superstar George Kittle and provide as quality blockers with the capability to get open and capture passes. He’ll be a part of a roster crammed with these players (Ross Dwelley, Charlie Woerner, Troy Fumagalli) and provide with him seven seasons worth of wisdom to lend to his youthful counterparts. Thanks to Shanahan’s inclination to use several restricted finishes at once, Kroft could carve out a worthwhile part for himself with a crew on the lookout to develop upon its visual appeal in the NFC Championship Video game.

The 49ers waived defensive lineman Chris Slayton to make place for Kroft.
