Packers signed DE Quinton Dial, formerly of the 49ers.
Dial never rose above rotational status in San Francisco, but was decent as a situational player. Dial has only 4.5 career sacks, but occupies space with his 6-foot-5 frame, and is sturdy against the run. Sep 5 - 4:02 PM

Date:

Free agent DE Quinton Dial is visiting the Packers on Monday.

Green Bay seems to be making a point of signing 49ers cast offs after adding OLB Ahmad Brooks last week. Dial is a solid player, but he did not fit in San Francisco's new defensive scheme. That would not be a problem with the Packers.

49ers released DE Quinton Dial.

Dial was given a three-year extension which included a $3.3 million signing bonus last February, but he is no longer a fit with the new coaching staff. He should latch on somewhere else.

49ers DE Quinton Dial (sprained MCL) will be ready for Week 1.

It's a bit surprising since Dial's injury occurred only four days ago, but the word comes straight from coach Chip Kelly. Dial could have a key rotational role along San Francisco's outrageously-thin defensive line.

49ers DE Quinton Dial suffered a sprained MCL Friday night against the Packers.

Knee sprains usually carry a two-to-four week timetable, which puts Dial's Week 1 status in serious doubt. Dial started the first two preseason games at right end.

49ers signed DE Quinton Dial to a three-year, $12 million extension through 2019.

The deal contains $5 million guaranteed. Dial played 662 defensive snaps last season, making 15 starts after the 49ers overhauled their defensive line following the release of LE Ray McDonald and retirement of RE Justin Smith. A 2013 fifth-round pick, Dial played really played well the final month of the year, so the 49ers possibly see it as a chance to buy low on an ascending player. Dial turns 26 this July.

49ers NT Quinton Dial could start Week 11 against the Giants with Ian Williams (leg) out.

Dial got his first career sack filling in for Williams against the Saints last week, and should play a sizable role for the 49ers on Sunday. NT Glenn Dorsey (biceps, IR/recall) could also return this week.

49ers activated NT Quinton Dial (toe) from the reserve/NFI list.

A fifth-round pick from Alabama, Dial missed the first six weeks while recovering from toe surgery. He'll provide defensive line depth with Glenn Dorsey (hamstring) and Ray McDonald (biceps) questionable for Sunday's game. Dial can play both nose tackle and five-technique end in the 49ers' 3-4 defense.

49ers agreed to terms with No. 157 overall pick DE Quinton Dial on a four-year contract.

A solid but unspectacular talent, Dial is considered "50-50" by CSN Bay Area to make the team. Dial will likely be a five-technique end on defense, but he'll be a regular game-day inactive if he manages to crack the 53-man roster.

CSN Bay Area doesn't consider 49ers fifth-round DE Quinton Dial a lock for a roster spot.

Beat writer Matt Maiocco puts Dial's odds of making the team at 50-50. Fifth-round picks generally make the roster, but are never locks. Dial is part of an 11-man 49ers' draft class, leaving him even less room for error than usual.

49ers selected Alabama DE Quinton Dial with the No. 157 overall pick.

Dial visited the 49ers during the pre-draft process. He will most likely play the five technique end spot in the 49ers three man front. There's nothing flashy about Dial's game, but he flashes an anchor and was a consistent player at Alabama. Dial only registered eight tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks.
