Wide Receiver Marlon Moore signed on March 19, 2013 (1-year, $630K)
HT: 6 ft 0 in WT: 190 lb
Former Team: Miami Dolphins
2012 Stats: 6 receptions, 116 receiving yards, 1 receiving touchdown (14 games)
The 49ers already have a lot of depth at wide receiver, so the signing of Marlon Moore was to give the special teams a fast option at gunner. This is likely the only way Moore will make the final roster as the 49ers have five spots at wide receiver already taken up by Michael Crabtree, Mario Manningham, Kyle Williams, A.J. Jenkins and newly acquired Anquan Boldin. Moore will also serve as insurance at receiver with Manningham and Williams coming back from knee injuries. He has only started two games since 2010.
One concern for Moore at wide receiver is he could not get into the rotation at receiver with the Dolphins despite their offense being depleted at the position. Moore is a native of Sacramento, CA and played collegiately at Fresno State.
