The San Francisco 49ers signed free agent offensive lineman Senio Kelemete to a one-year contract on Friday.

The 49ers waived/injured offensive lineman Justin Skule to make room for Kelemete. Skule sustained a torn ACL earlier in the week.

Kelemete, 31, has made 42 career starts at multiple positions, including five starts (14 games) at left guard with the Houston Texans in 2020.

He was originally a fifth-round pick of the Arizona Cardinals in 2012.

Kelemete appeared in one game with Arizona in 2012, 57 games (22 starts) with the New Orleans Saints from 2014-17, and 30 games (20 starts) with the Texans from 2018-20.

Skule, 24, has played in 31 regular-season games since being selected by San Francisco in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft. He made 12 starts at tackle and guard.
