Korey Toomer in San Francisco to finish where his father left off

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers linebacker addition had a father who tried out for the 49ers years ago.

The San Francisco 49ers signed Korey Toomer on Wednesday adding some linebacker depth. Following the signing, Toomer had an interesting tweet regarding his history with the team:

I’ve been trying to find information on Toomer’s father but haven’t found anything concrete. There’s a Kyle Toomer that played in the late ‘80s for UNLV according to sports reference.

As for Toomer? He played at Idaho before getting into the NFL. So how can you go wrong with a guy who went to the University of Idaho? He’s shown some flashes later in his career while with the San Diego Chargers, so maybe he can get everything put together with the 49ers.
