Report: 49ers sign special teams standout/WR Kassim Osgood

According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk,the San Fransisco 49ers have signed special teams standout Kassim Osgood.

Osgood has been known throughout the years as a great gunner on special teams. After spending 7 years with the San Diego Chargers, he signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars where he was actually given a chance to play on offense. He only accumulated 1 touchdown on 11 receptions. He played 3 years for the Jaguars and spent last season with the Detroit Lions.

It is strange that Osgood was never given much of a chance to play at receiver often. In his first two years with the Chargers, Osgood caught the ball 28 times for 586 yards. At this point in Osgood’s career, this might be the best thing that could of happened to him.
