The San Francisco 49ers are signing former Colts running back Marlon Mack. After a troubled 2022 offseason, Mack found a team after Niners running back Elijah Mitchell suffered an injury that will keep him off the field for 6-8 weeks.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the news via Twitter on Tuesday.
Mack was drafted in 2017 by the Indianapolis Colts, playing five seasons there before his contract expired. In 2022 offseason, he signed with the Houston Texans, was released and re-signed onto their practice squad, then released again.
In 2021, Mack played in just six games. He rushed 28 times for 101 yards and failed to score a touchdown for the second-straight year. His best season came in 2019, in which he rushed for over 1,000 and eight touchdowns.
