49ers offensive lineman Jordan Devey signed a one-year exclusive rights tender, the team announced on Monday afternoon.
Back in early March, the 49ers tendered Devey, giving him no outside negotiating power.
Last year, Devey started the first nine games for the 49ers at right guard before Andrew Tiller replaced him in the starting lineup. The 49ers acquired Devey on Aug. 18 from the New England Patriots in exchange for tight end Asante Cleveland.
He originally signed with Baltimore as an undrafted free agent on May 3, 2013, and spent training camp with the Ravens before being waived on August 30.
He was signed to the Ravens' practice squad on September 1, 2013, and was waived the following day. Devey was signed to the New England Patriots practice squad on September 3, 2013, where he spent the remainder of the season. In 2014, he saw action in seven games (four starts) along the offensive line for the Patriots.
A 28-year-old native of American Fork, UT, Devey played two seasons at Snow College (Ephraim, UT) before transferring to the University of Memphis. In his two seasons with the Tigers (2012-13), he started all 24 games he appeared in, earned Second-Team All-Conference USA honors in 2013, and started at left guard for the East team at the 2013 East-West Shrine Game.
