The 49ers held a Gong Show workout for receivers on Tuesday, and a former member of the defending Super Bowl champions won the check for $516.32.
Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com reports that the Niners signed former Packers wideout Brett Swain.
Swain beat out T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Chris Chambers, Brian Finneran, Joe Hastings, and John Matthews for the job.
Swain appeared in all 20 games last year for the Packers, catching six passes for 72 yards. He also started a Sunday night game against the Patriots.
The addition of Swain was necessitated by the loss of Josh Morgan in garbage time of Sunday’s 48-3 win over the Buccaneers.
