The Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers’ continued their seemingly relentless offseason jabs at one another this weekend when the 49ers’ signed away WR Chris Harper from the Seahawks practice squad, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. Harper’s deal is reportedly a three year deal. It is unknown exactly how Jim Harbaugh plans to use him in San Francisco’s offense, but there is some speculation that Harper will make a position change to help fill former tight end Delanie Walker’s role from last season. Harper—a rookie out of Kansas State—measures in at 6’1” and 235 lbs. which is actually quite similar to Walker, who departed San Francisco for Tennessee via free agency this offseason. This means there actually could be some merit to the rumored position switch. Harper was expected to add some physicality to Seattle’s receiving core this year but ended up being a roster casualty during the final waive of cuts after being outperformed this preseason by fellow receivers Stephen Williams and Jermaine Kearse. The Seahawks tried and successfully placed Harper on the practice squad after waiving him but San Francisco swooped in and eventually won the bidding war over the receiver. Ironically, many draft pundits had compared Chris Harper to his new teammate Anquan Boldin this offseason after being drafted by Seattle. Who better for the young man to learn from than the Super Bowl hero himself? Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
