WR slot veteran allegedly re-signed with 49ers

The 49ers used Willie Snead as a backup last season. Snead returned to San Francisco's roster on Wednesday morning, according to KPRC2's Aaron Wilson.

The slot receiver signed a one-year deal. After adding Chris Conley, the 49ers reunited.

Snead and Conley may not fit on San Francisco's 53-man roster due to Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk, Jauan Jennings, Danny Gray, and Ray-Ray McCloud. 

Snead will get another shot as an insurance option for the 49ers.

Snead has two 800-plus-yard seasons at New Orleans, in 2016 and 2017. In 2018, the Ravens' slot target had 651 receiving yards.

Snead, 30, lived in Baltimore for three years before moving around. After spending 2021 with the Raiders and Panthers, the 49ers signed Snead.

In four 49ers games last season, Snead played 30 offensive snaps and 38 special teams.

Snead should fight for a similar position this year, barring a 49ers star's injury.
