49ers add depth to receiving corps with Swain
The agency representing wide receiver Brett Swain says he has
agreed to a one-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers.
Rep 1 Sports tweeted the news Tuesday, when San Francisco worked
out potential replacements for the injured Joshua Morgan.
The 26-year-old Swain was cut in late August by Green Bay. He
had three tackles on special teams in the Packers’ Super Bowl win
over Pittsburgh. He has six career receptions for 72 yards, all
last year. He missed much of 2009 with a knee injury.
Swain grew up in San Diego and was a seventh-round draft pick by
the Packers out of San Diego State in 2008.
Morgan broke a bone in his lower right leg during Sunday’s 48-3
rout of Tampa Bay and required surgery.
