49ers to host WR Jerry Rice Jr. for a tryout
May 19, 2014 at 3:12p ET
Rice, who is the son of Hall of Famer Jerry Rice, announced the news via Twitter:
Despite not signing with the Ravens, he told The Baltimore Sun that the team noted his “hands, competitiveness and quickness and will have him on their emergency list of players to consider.”
The 5-foot-11, 185-pound wide receiver, who caught 11 passes for 86 yards for UNLV in 2013, has a rare opportunity to play for his father’s team. Rice Sr. helped the 49ers win three Super Bowls.
