49ers Re-Sign Brett Swain, According To Reports

Yea, so, that happened. According to a tweet by Brett Swain's representative, the 49ers wide receiver has agreed to terms with the team. I would imagine it is somewhere around the league minimum and he will be back to compete for special teams playing time in training camp.

The 49ers were forced to press Swain into duty late last season thanks to a variety of injuries to the wide receiver corps. As we head towards 2012 training camp, fingers remaining crossed that will be less of an issue. The 49ers will roll out Michael Crabtree, Mario Manningham, Randy Moss, Kyle Williams and Ted Ginn Jr.

That does not factor in any possible wide receiver additions in the draft. I remain convinced the 49ers will add one more in the draft and an assortment of receivers in rookie free agency. Wide receiver is a position where it would not be surprising to see them use a first round pick, and it would not be surprising to see them wait it out and use a later round pick, hoping to find a diamond in the rough. For now though, Brett Swain will not be that diamond.
