When the 49ers signed WR Brandon Jones in February to a five-year, $16.5 million deal with $5.4 million guaranteed, they weren't sure if Isaac Bruce would retire and hadn't drafted Michael Crabtree.
With Bruce and Crabtree in the mix, where does Jones fit in?
"The best way I can," said Jones, who had 41 catches for 449 yards and a touchdown last season for the Tennessee Titans. "I want to get on the field. I want to make plays. That's my job to do. That's what I'm going to do. I see myself fitting in wherever they want me to fit in. I want to help the team win."
Jones, 6-foot-1 and 212 pounds, has made himself known at practice.
"He's got some wheels, and he's got much stronger hands than I thought," Hill said. "He's really surprised me with how strong his hands are in traffic, going up and making plays. He's got some range to him, and he's shown that in the last few days."
