Brandon Jones Signs with the Seahawks
Jones, 27, signed a five-year, $16.5 million contract with the 49ers in 2009 but never really fit in. He played eight games for the 49ers and caught only one pass for 18 yards. The 49ers released him last week. He spent his first four seasons with the Tennessee Titans and caught 112 passes for 1,380 yards.
The Seahawks are overstuffed with wide receivers, but they found room for one more on Sunday when they signed former Titans and 49ers wideout Brandon Jones, according to John Clayton of ESPN.
The Seahawks may want a receiver with special teams value, but the top five spots on the Seahawks wideout depth chart seem accounted for. (Unless Deion Branch or T.J. Houshmandzadeh get cut, which seems unlikely.) Perhaps Jones could make it as a sixth receiver and bump Ben Obomanu or Ruvell Martin off the team.
Jones becomes the second 49ers reject this week to land in Seattle, joining Kentwan Balmer.
