Foster and the 49ers are awaiting word from the Santa Clara County District Attorney's office about possible charges against Foster for domestic violence and other issues. "We'd love Reuben to be on this team," York told NBC Sports Bay Area at the owners meetings in Orlando, Fla. "And we'd love him to participate for us. But if he's not doing things off the field that allow us to be able to rely on him, or he's doing something that we're not comfortable with off the field and it's proven that's what's going on -- I think the guys have said then you're just going to have to move on."

"Jeremiah has been quite disruptive during his career despite his limited opportunities playing behind some top tier defensive ends," 49ers general manager John Lynch said. "He is a wonderful fit for our scheme and our locker room. We expect Jeremiah to be productive on defense while also providing us an exceptional player on special teams. He's another guy who fits the mold of a 49er."
Injuries have hindered the career of the 25-year-old Attaochu, who appeared in only four games with the Los Angeles Chargers last season and eight in 2016.
A second-round draft pick of the Chargers in 2014, Attaochu flashed his pass-rushing potential in 2015, when he started 12 of 15 games and collected 6.0 sacks and 52 tackles -- both career highs. In four seasons, he appeared in 38 games (13 starts) and had 92 tackles, 10 sacks, two passes defensed and two forced fumbles.

At $27.5 million a year, Garoppolo's deal is the largest per-year average salary on a long-term contract in NFL history. The 49ers could have used the franchise tag to ensure they kept Garoppolo for a year, but they wanted to get a long-term deal completed to indicate he is their quarterback for the foreseeable future. Although he has started only seven NFL games -- two with the New England Patriots in 2016 and five with the 49ers in 2017 -- he has a perfect record in those starts, having won all seven.
