SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Linebacker Larry Grant and wide receiver Brett Swain have signed one-year contracts to remain with the San Francisco 49ers.

The 49ers announced Tuesday that Grant signed a one-year deal he had previously been tendered. Drafted in the seventh round by San Francisco in 2008, Grant spent three seasons with the St. Louis Rams before returning to the Bay Area last season.

He set a career-high with 30 tackles and had two sacks and one forced fumble for the NFC West champion 49ers last season. Grant also had 10 tackles on special teams.

Swain was picked up by San Francisco after being released by Green Bay during training camp last year. He had two catches for 15 years in five games.
