49ers Sign Joseph-Day, Cowboys Miss Defensive Boost Opportunity

FRISCO — The position of the San Francisco 49ers is certainly that they need a defense because of the injury. Obviously, this is a spot for the Dallas Cowboys that they need in the same spot…not so much.

Sebastian Joseph-Day, who was waived by the Chargers late last week, will be signed by the Cowboysand#039; rivals in San Francisco, bringing run-stopping talent, QB-bullying ability and Super Bowl experience to the lineup. The Niners have dealt with injuries in recent weeks with D-linemen Javon Hargrave and Arik Armstead … and that’s why adding veteran depth makes sense.



But Cowboys critics will surely wonder why Dallas — with Johnathan Hankins (ankle) still out and rookie Mazi Smith now rushing into action — couldn’t make a similar move. To be honest, it is still unknown which teams besides the Niners tried to sign the player. Joseph-Day played in all 14 games for the Chargers this season, recording a career-best three sacks and a career-high 11 quarterback hits.

He appears to have been released by the cap, as he is playing on a three-year, $24 million contract with the Chargers through 2022 after winning the Super Bowl with the Rams last season. Partly because of that trade, Joseph-Day accepted waivers and was free to sign with a team of his choice. He now has a one-year contract with NFC Super Bowl favorite San Francisco.
