San Francisco 49ers Players with Reserve/Future Contracts for 2012: Fan’s Look
As the San Francisco 49ers look ahead to the 2012-13 NFL season, the team has already made some roster transactions in the form of reserve/future contracts for 2012. By signing these players to future deals, the 49ers will have these street free agents under contract when the league's year begins on March 13. Here's a look at the 10 players currently signed by the 49ers to reserve/future deals.
After being released by the 49ers on Sept. 3, the 49ers added the 2010 All-American to the practice squad for the entire season.
College: South Carolina
Like Beeler, Hall was a former player under coach Jim Harbaugh at Stanford and was re-signed to the practice squad one day after being released.
FS Mark LeGree
College: Appalachian State
A two-time All-American at Appalachian State, LeGree was drafted in the fifth round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks and was a member of the 49ers' practice squad for two weeks last season.
College: San Diego
When LeGree was released from the practice squad on Nov. 15, Matthews, who has seen time on the active roster with the Jacksonville Jaguars, took his spot on the squad. Matthews is one of four players to have Harbaugh as his college coach.
CB Cory Nelms
This former track star spent the entire season on the practice squad and will likely return to that spot in 2012.
WR Kyle Nelson
College: New Mexico State
College: Fresno State
A native of Elk Grove, he was a two-time all-WAC selection and spent the end of last season on the Ravens' practice squad.
