Raiders signed DE Tank Carradine, formerly of the 49ers.
A 2013 second-rounder, Carradine has only 5.5 career sacks but is decent against the run. He also generated some pressure on 214 snaps last season. In between, he was sidelined by a high-ankle sprain. Capable of playing multiple positions, he will hunt for rotational work in Oakland. Mar 16 - 10:55 PM

NBC Bay Area's Matt Maiocco expects the 49ers to extend free agent DL Tank Carradine.

With Carlos Hyde and Eric Reid likely to test free agency, Carradine and Brock Coyle are the 49ers' top candidates for new deals. Carradine had a slow start to his career, but graded out positively over eight games (214 snaps) last year and can play multiple spots. An early-down run stopper, Carradine shouldn’t be a difficult re-sign.

49ers activated OLB Tank Carradine (ankle) from injured reserve.

Carradine has been sidelined since Week 3. He should return Sunday after practicing the last two weeks and will give the 49ers another pass rusher on the outside. Ray-Ray Armstrong was waived to open a spot for Carradine.

49ers placed OLB Tank Carradine on injured reserve with a high-ankle sprain.

Carradine went down in last Thursday's loss to the Rams. He can resume practicing in six weeks and return to game action in eight. Elvis Dumervil is ticketed for the biggest uptick in snaps in Carradine's absence.

49ers OLB Tank Carradine (ankle) is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.

It's the standard timeline for high-ankle sprains. There was concern Carradine could be shut down for the season, but he'll likely avoid IR. Elvis Dumervil should pick up Carradine's snaps.

49ers OLB Tank Carradine suffered a high-ankle sprain in Thursday's Week 3 loss to the Rams.

He's going for an MRI and the results could determine whether he lands on I.R. A decision will likely be made by Monday. Carradine has totaled seven tackles and one sack over 80 defensive snaps this season.

49ers signed OLB Tank Carradine to a one-year extension through 2017.

The deal includes a $1.25 million signing bonus. Carradine was scheduled to be a free agent next spring, but the 49ers wanted at least another year to see if his transition to outside linebacker pays off. The 2013 second-round pick will play a rotational role this season. Carradine has managed four sacks through his first 23 NFL games.

49ers DE/OLB Tank Carradine has dropped his weight into the mid-260s and is expected to focus on outside linebacker in 2016.

The 40th pick in the 2013 draft, Carradine has been an ineffective sub-package defensive lineman to this point in his career. He has four sacks through 23 career games (1 start). Carradine came out of Florida State weighing 276 and ballooned into the 290s in recent seasons. 2016 is his contract year.
Mon, Mar 21, 2016 04:24:00 PM

49ers DL Tank Carradine is expected to be used more as an edge rusher in 2016.

Carradine bulked up to nearly 300 pounds as the 49ers tried to shoehorn him in at defensive end in their 3-4 scheme. He started cutting weight last season and is now down to around 270 pounds. Carradine sat out his rookie year recovering from ACL surgery and has just four sacks across 23 games in the two seasons since. He is entering the final year of his rookie deal.
Mon, Feb 22, 2016 10:48:00 AM

The 49ers intend to use third-year DE Tank Carradine as a sub-package pass rusher.

Bulked up to 295 pounds -- nearly 20 above his Combine weigh-in -- 6-foot-4 Carradine projects to replace RE Glenn Dorsey in pass-rush situations. Carradine earned negative marks in both pass rushing and run stopping from Pro Football Focus last year. He'll likely rush from a three-technique position.

49ers DE Tank Carradine says he's up to 295 pounds.

Carradine, who missed his entire rookie season as he recovered from a torn ACL, weighed in at 276 at last year's Combine. As Rotoworld's Josh Norris points out, it could be an indication he's being groomed for a Justin Smith-type role. With Smith still going strong, however, Carradine should begin 2014 as a situational pass rusher.

49ers DE Tank Carradine had a procedure to remove a "mass of scar tissue" from his surgically-repaired right knee.

Coach Jim Harbaugh made the disclosure in his Thursday Combine presser. When Carradine underwent the operation is unclear, but Harbaugh hinted he's 100 percent. "He looks like a different guy now," Harbaugh said. "Just what we saw when he did practice with our football team and now this procedure that's been done, I'm even more excited." Carradine declared himself "fully recovered" in January, but made no mention of the follow-up surgery. Being eased into his NFL career, Carradine will likely start out 2014 as a situational pass rusher.

49ers DE Tank Carradine (ACL) has declared himself "fully recovered."

Coach Jim Harbaugh has "great hope" Carradine can carve out a role in 2014. "There’s a path there," Harbaugh said. "Nobody owes anyone a career in professional football. Your career is literally your business. But I have great faith that (Carradine has) what it takes." The No. 40 overall pick of last April's draft, Carradine likely would have been a first-rounder if not for his medical concerns. He lived in the opposing backfield at Florida State. Carradine will likely start out 2014 as a situational pass rusher.

49ers placed DE Tank Carradine on injured reserve, ending his season.

A year removed from tearing his ACL at Florida State, Carradine was activated off the reserve/NFI list in October, but had yet to be active. The No. 40 overall pick of April's draft, Carradine wasn't selected with contributing in 2013 in mind. It's unclear where his knee is at, but in theory, Carradine should be a full participant in the 49ers' offseason program. He'll likely begin 2014 as a situational pass rusher.

49ers activated DE Tank Carradine (ACL surgery) from the reserve/NFI list.

The No. 40 pick of April's draft, the 49ers selected Carradine five months into his recovery from a torn right ACL. Despite the injury, Carradine was still able to run a 4.93 40 in the run up to the draft, but the 49ers wisely opted to take things slow with his rehab. Speaking Tuesday, Harbaugh said the Niners would continue to be cautious with their rookie end. "He’s still coming along," Harbaugh said. "He’s getting the feel back from playing 11-on-11 football. But it’s coming." Carradine's snaps will be limited if he's active for Week 10.
