Cornerback Antone Exum Jr. re-signed with the San Francisco 49ers on Wednesday, the team announced.

The 6-foot, 219-pound Exum signed a free-agent contract with the 49ers on Nov. 7. He made one start in his two game appearances, making three tackles.

Exum, 27, was selected by the Minnesota Vikings in the sixth round (182nd overall) out of Virginia Tech in the 2014 NFL Draft. In three seasons with the Vikings, he appeared in 27 games (two starts) and registered 18 tackles, two fumble recoveries and one forced fumble along with 13 tackles on special teams.

After spending the 2016 season on injured reserve, Exum was waived by Minnesota on Sept. 16.

Exum played in 44 games (35 starts) for Virginia Tech, including starts in the final 30 games. He finished his collegiate career with 186 tackles, 36 passes defensed, six interceptions, five forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and 1.5 sacks.
