Nathan Gerry is heading West. The veteran linebacker is signing with the 49ers, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic. John Clark of NBC Sports Philadelphia was first with the news.

The 2017 fifth-round pick out of Nebraska had spent his entire career with the Eagles, appearing in 46 regular-season games and six postseason games (including three during Philly’s 2017 run to a Super Bowl championship). After serving as mostly a backup during his first two years in the pros, Gerry started 12 of his 16 contests in 2019, finishing with 78 tackles, 2.5 sacks, two interceptions (including a pick-six) and five QB hits.
