Associated Press – The San Francisco 49ers have signed undrafted punter and kickoff specialist Colton Schmidt to a three-year contract. The 49ers announced the deal Monday. Schmidt will compete against punter Andy Lee and kicker Phil Dawson, likely serving as the backup and providing breaks for each during training camp.
