49ers sign Raymond Ventrone, waive Jason Schepler

The 49ers just announced they’ve signed veteran backup safety and special-teamer Raymond Ventrone to a two-year contract. To make room on the roster for Ventrone, the 49ers waived fullback Jason Schepler.

Ventrone was a special-teams standout on the Cleveland Browns when current 49ers’ special teams coach, Brad Seely, was the Browns’ special teams coach, and current 49ers’ offensive consultant, Eric Mangini, was the Browns’ head coach.

Perhaps Mangini and Seely convinced Jim Harbaugh the 49ers needed another special teams player more than they needed another fullback.

Do you think Ventrone will make the final 53-man roster? Why or why not?
