The 49ers and KR/PR Specialist Ted Ginn Jr, have agreed on a new one year deal. With the return of Ginn, the 49ers do not need to look for another return specialist in the draft.
Ginn hopes to see action at the WR spot, but with the additions of Manningham and Moss, that might be hard.
In his first career tour as an unrestricted free agent, Ginn visited the Minnesota Vikings, Baltimore Ravens and Detroit Lions this offseason. But ultimately, Ginn left his heart in San Francisco.
“The 49ers are my heart,” Ginn said in Thursday’s conference call with the local media. “We went so far that I just felt like coming back was the best thing for me and my family.”

Josh Johnson has no idea how much he'll play behind 49ers starter Alex Smith, or if the backup job is even his to earn ahead of second-year pro Colin Kaepernick.

The 49ers toyed with Peyton Manning like a dog discovering a lost squeaky toy that had just a little bit of squeak left.

But then, Manning signs with the Broncos.Now, the 49ers are left scrambling to get...

Maybe a free-agent visit to Miami wound up benefitting Alex Smith in the long run. The quarterback signed a three-year contract on Tuesday and if reports of the original offer from the San Francisco 49ers are accurate, Smith is better off having been part of the Peyton Manning circus. While the 49ers flirted with Manning, and eventually lost out to the Denver Broncos, Smith explored...
