WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — After starting for the Dallas Cowboys in the 2017 season, offensive guard and former Hoggard Viking Jonathan Cooper has signed with the San Francisco 49ers on a one-year contract.
Cooper, a former first-round pick for the Arizona Cardinals, spent years on New England and Cleveland before heading to Dallas during the playoffs of the 2016 season.
“Having started 27 games in four NFL seasons, Jonathan brings great experience to the interior of our offensive line,” 49ers General Manager John Lynch said. “We look forward to him competing for a starting job at guard, while also bringing a veteran presence to our locker room. Jonathan is a welcome addition to our team.”
The Wilmington-native appeared in 13 games for the Cowboys during their 9-7 season.
