“He’s not ready to practice from a security standpoint and for his own health,” Harbaugh said, via ESPN. “We understand that and pulled him off.”
Pierce, a restricted free agent, didn’t attend past voluntary offseason workouts. He’s set to earn a non-guaranteed base salary of $3.095 million in 2019. He will be a free agent in 2020.
Based on ESPN’s Jamison Hensley, the defensive tackle appeared thicker than his listed playing weight of 340 lbs.
“He is not ready for this clinic nonetheless,” Harbaugh said. “I think you could tell.”
An undrafted free agent signing in 2016, Pierce impressed through his first few seasons. As a rotational player, Pierce made the fifth-highest grade for an inner defender from Pro Football Emphasis and has been the fourth-best from the run.
If he doesn’t get on the practice field this week, the next chance is through training camp in late July.
