Ivory Coast’s Kemoko Turay became new 49ers player

After the good taste in his mouth left by his performances last season with the Indianapolis Colts, defensive wing Kemoko Turay was signed by the San Francisco 49ers, team where he has an agreement for one season.

The quarterback digger recorded 5.5 catches in 13 games, until today the maximum of his career, which began in 2018 and which totals 12 catches.

To endorse his good moment

At 26 years old, Turay joins to reinforce a strong 49ers defensive line that last year ranked fifth best in the NFL in terms of pass catches, with 48.

Originally from Abidjan, Ivory Coast, this player came to the NFL selected in the second round by the Colts in 2018.

Although he has only played in 38 games in four years due to an ankle injury he suffered in 2019, which required a lengthy rehab, San Francisco officials hope this season could be the breakout of his career.

Kemoko Turay has the backing of coordinator DeMeco Ryans, who has Nick Bosa as his leader, and the way the 49ers played last year, they are expected to establish themselves as a tough opponent to beat throughout the season.

Grateful to the Colts

“I want to thank Colts Nation for the opportunity they gave me from the day I was drafted and the fans that I have come to love and have been able to respond to and get to know so much. I appreciate all the love they showed me when I arrived. I appreciate the culture, what we stand for. I learned a lot and will always be a Colt,” notes part of a message from Kemoko on his social media addressed to his former Indianapolis teammates.

In other relevant free agency moves, the Green Bay Packers announced the signing of receiver Sammy Watkins; while the Dallas Cowboys announced the departure of kicker Hunter Niswander; and the Houston Texans reached an agreement with cornerback Steven Nelson.
