49ers re-sign DB Jimmie Ward to 1-year deal

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers have re-signed defensive back Jimmie Ward to a one-year deal.

The team announced the deal on Monday after agreeing to terms last week on a contract to bring back the 2014 first-round pick.

The 27-year-old Ward has played only 51 games over five seasons because of various injuries. He has experience playing both cornerback and safety and offers versatility for San Francisco.

He has 207 career tackles with 20 passes defensed, two sacks and two interceptions.
