49ers among teams interested in cornerback David Amerson

49ers among teams interested in cornerback David Amerson

According to Ian Rapoport of The NFL Network, the Texans have already gotten that effort underway by setting up a visit with former Oakland Raiders cornerback David Amerson.

Amerson, 26, was recently released by Oakland after the hiring of new coach Jon Gruden.

Amerson was only able to manage six games played in 2017 due to a concussion and a mid-foot sprain and was awful when he was on the field. At 6-foot-1 and 205 pounds, he fits the profile the 49ers want in their cornerbacks.

The Raiders were forced to cut cornerback David Amerson to save themselves from a three-year commitment worth almost $22 million after a season in which he struggled mightily. The only two outside cornerbacks signed for the upcoming season are Ahkello Witherspoon and Greg Mabin.

Okafor, who played his college basketball at the University of CT, was originally selected by the Charlotte Bobcats with the second overall pick of the 2004 NBA Draft and proceeded to spend the first eight years of his career with the organization, capturing the Rookie of the Year award. But the other starting cornerback spot is in flux heading into 2018. It appears San Francisco will be looking to make an upgrade in free agency and the draft, although Johnson could be brought back to compete for a roster spot.

The Texans are definitely hoping to improve their secondary after losing A.J. Bouye to the Jacksonville Jaguars last season, where he earned his first Pro Bowl nod. He has eight interceptions in 68 career games. Norton was hired to be a 49ers assistant this offseason before taking the job as Seahawks coordinator days later.
