SANTA CLARA, Calif. (May 5, 2005) -- Linebacker Saleem Rasheed re-signed with the San Francisco 49ers, agreeing to a one-year tender offer.
Rasheed, a third-round draft pick in 2002, has played sparingly in his three seasons with the 49ers, both because of injuries and the club's depth at his position. He made 25 tackles and recovered one fumble last season as a backup.
The 49ers, who will open their second offseason minicamp May 6 at their training complex, also re-signed fullback Steve Bush. The nine-year NFL veteran joined the club late last season and caught a touchdown pass in the regular-season finale at New England.
