The 49ers have re-upped long snapper Kyle Nelson for four years, according to ESPN’s Field Yates.

The only complication is that Nelson won’t be available for the first six games of the season as he still has a half a dozen games left in his 10-game ban, stemming from a violation of the league’s policy on performance enhancing substances.

Nelson, who’s been with the Niners since 2014, was previously suspended six games in 2011.
