49ers sign RB Keon Lattimore to practice squad

It's not exactly a huge transaction, but still worth noting.  The 49ers signed free agent RB Keon Lattimore to their practice squad.

Lattimore (5-11, 225) signed with the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted free agent following the 2008 NFL Draft and was released on August 30, 2008. He was signed to the Jacksonville Jaguars practice squad on December 10, 2008, where he spent the remainder of the season. Lattimore re-signed with Dallas on May 1, 2009 and was released on September 5.

Lattimore, a 25-year-old native of Baltimore, MD, played collegiately at Maryland. He finished his Maryland career with 1,744 yards and 19 touchdowns rushing. As a senior, he led the Terps with 805 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns.

Maybe Shaun Hill needs a fellow Terp to fire him up.  On a barely related note, for the folks here who have lived in the greater Washington, DC area (I went to undergrad in DC), how many of you are Maryland fans?  I have to admit that Maryland fans always seemed to talk an inordinate amount of crap even though they hadn't won anything.  Prior to them winning the basketball national title I worked at the ESPNZone in Washington, DC and dealt with them on a fairly regular basis during basketball season.  It seemed like while Duke and UNC were battling for ACC honors, Maryland was the third wheel with an inferiority complex.  If we have any Maryland fans here I'd love to get an explanation for this.  It's pretty off-topic, but I might as well take advantage of this rare opportunity.
