49ers waive CB Zach Franklin and sign CB Asa Jackson

The 49ers announced on Tuesday morning that they have waived injured CB Zach Franklin and signed CB Asa Jackson.

Jackson is signing a one-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers. Back in the 2012 NFL Draft, Jackson was a draft pick of the Baltimore Ravens. For his career, he's appeared in 22 games, totaling 34 tackles and four passes broken up. He's spent time with the Ravens and the Lions through his five-year career.

Franklin was an undrafted free agent signed in 2017. He was released to make room for Jackson on the roster.

Welcome to the squad, Asa Jackson!
