The 49ers signed Newsome to a reserve/future contract Tuesday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Newsome signed with the 49ers' practice squad in mid-November and spent the remainder of the campaign there. The North Carolina product was selected by the Bears in the sixth round of the 2021 NFL Draft and made three appearances for Chicago during his rookie season. He spent time with Kansas City before latching on with San Francisco and will get to stick around the 49ers' organization during the offseason.

2021 Fantasy Outlook
With the Bears placing slot receiver Anthony Miller on the trade block this offseason, it's no surprise that they selected the 5-10, 190-pound Newsome in the sixth round of the 2021 Draft. During four years at North Carolina, Newsome manned the slot often and arrives in Chicago boasting precise route running. However, playing a position that largely relies on agility in the NFL, he didn't place above the 17th percentile in either of two agility drills at his pro day. Plus, he isn't fast for his size, as his 4.57 40 time checked in at just the 25th percentile. The Bears did end up trading Miller, but only after Newsome suffered a broken collarbone during spring practices, forcing him to the sideline for the start of training camp. He'll have a tough time earning snaps early on.
