49ers Free-Agent Target No. 2: Wide Receiver Quincy Enunwa

Given the injuries to Jalen Hurd and Deebo Samuel, it’s likely the Niners are going to favor health as a major priority in their remaining NFL free agency plans.

That would probably eliminate former New York Jets wide receiver Quincy Enunwa from the target list, as he’s appeared in just 12 regular-season games the past three years. But while the availability and production during that span has been questionable, at best, there are still plenty of ample reasons why Enunwa could be a legitimate target to round out the back end of San Francisco’s receiving depth chart.

Hurd, 6-foot-4, was pegged to be a strong mismatch nightmare for Kyle Shanahan’s offense. Enunwa, 6-foot-2 and 225 pounds, possesses the size and strength the 49ers are generally lacking at the position.

The Niners lack experience here, too, particularly among the players pegged to make the 53-man roster.

Enunwa, a former sixth-round pick of the Jets, has a six-year career under his belt and can boast of a productive 2016 campaign in which he managed 857 receiving yards and four touchdowns on a sub-par Jets offense. For the sole purposes of guiding and advising some of San Francisco’s younger receivers, the team could do a lot worse than exploring whether or not a player like Enunwa could offer up anything to bolster this questionable group.
