The Seahawks have some big bucks wrapped up their wide receivers, but their most productive receiver signed with them for a $17,500 signing bonus. Undrafted rookie free agent Doug Baldwin is leading the team in catches and yards, and he has been the third most productive rookie receiver in the league, behind only first round picks Julio Jones and A.J. Green. Baldwin was considered small and slow by many teams, but scouts overlooked his long arms, jumping ability, suddenness and ability to separate. Even though Baldwin was undrafted, many teams were interested in signing him after the draft. In fact, Jim Harbaugh, who coached Baldwin at Stanford, wanted him on the 49ers, but Baldwin chose to sign with the rival Seahawks over the 49ers in part because the 49ers had drafted a receiver, Ron Johnson, in the sixth round, and Baldwin thought he would have a better chance in Seattle.

For anybody who questioned whether new coach Jim Harbaugh could turn around the downtrodden San Francisco 49ers in a hurry, his team is giving every indication this year will be different from the franchise’s struggles over much of the past decade. How different? How about Sunday’s 48-3 thrashing of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a team that beat the Niners by three touchdowns last season.
Jim Harbaugh said today the 49ers are preparing to be without wide receiver Joshua Morgan for an “extended time” and will sign another wide receiver or elevate a wideout from the practice squad to fill Morgan’s spot. Morgan will have surgery today after breaking a bone in his lower right leg, Harbaugh said. It’s possible the injury will end Morgan’s 2011 season

SEATTLE, Wash. -- Perhaps even more surprising than the Seattle Seahawks' 36-25 Sunday win over the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium — the franchise's first win in New York since 1983 — were the key contributions made by two undrafted free agents. Receiver Doug Baldwin and cornerback Brandon Browner came to the NFL on different career paths, but they're both making...
