Hayne said he had only given a verbal commitment to the 49ers yesterday, leading many to believe the 27-year-old would sign a future’s deal with the NFL side.
However, the 49ers confirmed on Wednesday that Hayne had signed for three years as an undrafted free agent.
Hayne is guaranteed US$100,000, a rare offer for a free agent with no NFL experience.
“Hayne comes from an athletic family as his father, Manoa Thompson, is a former professional rugby league player who represented Fiji on the national rugby team,” the 49ers said in a statement.
The former Eel also attracted interest from the Detroit Lions and Seattle Seahawks, however the San Francisco lifestyle is believed to have played a major role in his choice.
