The San Francisco 49ers made an attempt to reinforce their receiving corps by signing free-agent wideout and return man Keshawn Martin to a two-year deal, per a report. The move fills up the vacant roster spot left by the retirement of offensive tackle Anthony Davis.
San Francisco signed Martin to a two-year deal on Tuesday, per NFL insider Rand Getlin.
He has 62 receptions for 685 yards and five touchdowns over his four-year NFL career. San Francisco’s offense currently ranks 29th in the league with just 876 yards gained. The Niners passing game has also generated a lowly 526 yards, which stands at No. 30 overall. Martin got a lot of attention last year when he was rumored to take over Julian Edelman's spot when he went down last year with a foot injury. Another note is Martin has broken a 70-plus yard kick or punt return in three of his four NFL seasons.
