Linebacker Roderick Green, perhaps the most talented pass rusher on the 49ers' roster, was re-signed today. He was scheduled to become a free agent at 9 p.m. Thursday. Green was released prior to the 2007 season but was brought back in early November when the 49ers' pass rush fell flat early on. The 49ers first acquired Green in early September of 2006 before releasing him later that month. He was picked up again Nov. 7 -- the same as 2007 -- and finished third on the team with 4 1/2 sacks in 2006. He had two sacks last season.
