Sutton was let go by the 49ers on Friday, the team's official site reports.
Sutton spent three seasons in Chicago after being selected in the third round of the 2014 draft, but couldn't make the Vikings' 53-man roster prior to the 2017 season. He was cut heading into Week 1 of the regular season for a second straight season.
Sutton signed a contract Wednesday with the 49ers.
A former third-round selection in 2014, Sutton spent his first three seasons with the Bears, recording 82 tackles and seven pass breakups. After his release last May, he joined the Vikings but failed to make the 53-man roster and was cut after the preseason. He'll vie for a depth role with San Francisco if he cracks the final roster.

After being waived by the Bears a week ago, Sutton didn't take long to find a new home in the NFC North. A former collegiate standout at Arizona State, Sutton struggled to make an impact as a 3-4 defensive end during his three seasons with the Bears, compiling 60 tackles and no sacks in 36 career games (18 starts). Defensive tackle Toby Johnson was waived to create roster room for Sutton, who could have better luck fitting in as a tackle in a 4-3 scheme. He's expected to vie for a reserve role along the line in training camp.
Sutton (ankle) was released by the Bears on Thursday.
Sutton was selected by the Bears in the third round of the 2014 draft but he hasn't amounted to much more than a backup. He ended last season on injured reserve due to an ankle injury, but it isn't anticipated that the injury will force him to miss the start of the 2017 season.
Sutton (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Sutton's season comes to an end after he was spotted in a walking boot after Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers. He registered 15 tackles this season playing primarily as a reserve defensive end and special teams contributor. The Bears' defense has been ravaged by injuries this season, as Eddie Goldman is now the only nose tackle on the active roster.

If Sutton ends up having to miss any game action, expect starting nose tackle Eddie Goldman to see an even more expanded role along the Bears defensive line.
Sutton (elbow) logged five tackles in the Bears' 31-17 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday.
Sutton was initially listed as questionable to play, but ended up playing 45 of 68 defensive snaps for the Bears, finishing tied for fourth on the team in tackles. Barring a setback to his elbow in practice this week, he should be set to play once again in Week 4 against the Lions.
Sutton (elbow) is questionable to play in the Bears' Week 3 matchup against the Cowboys.
Sutton popped up on the injury report on Thursday, but practiced in full on Friday. He figures to see as many snaps as he can handle with fellow nose tackle Eddie Goldman (ankle) doubtful to play.
Sutton recorded 23 stops and four passes defensed over 13 games with the Bears during the 2015 season.
Sutton's stat line was almost identical to what he posted a season earlier as a rookie (22 tackles, two passes defensed in 15 games). The defensive lineman is still looking for his first career sack, and doesn't figure to offer much production in that category while the Bears continue to utilize him primarily as a 3-4 end.
Sutton (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN Chicago reports.
Sutton was limited during all three of the Bears' practices this week, but he'll be available off the bench in the defensive line rotation. The second-year tackle has supplied 16 tackles and no sacks across his 10 games on the season.
Bears defensive end Will Sutton (biceps) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders.
Sutton was expected to slide back to a bench role with Jeremiah Ratliff (ankle) returning from a three-game suspension, but both players are listed as questionable for Sunday, after logging limited practices throughout the week. If both suit up, Ratliff will probably get the start and play more snaps. Neither warrants IDP consideration.
Bears defensive end Will Sutton left Sunday's game against the Seahawks with a biceps injury, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Sutton had logged about 40 snaps in each of the Bears' first two games, but even before the injury surfaced, he looked bound for a decline in playing time. Jeremiah Ratliff will return from a three-game suspension during the Week 4 matchup with the Raiders, resulting in Sutton moving back to a bench role.
The Bears will see how Sutton progresses from the injury during the week of practice before determining if he will be available for the upcoming game.

They have, however, given the green light to cornerback Tim Jennings (ankle).
