The 49ers officially ended Josh Morgan’s season on Wednesday, and they signed a familiar name to help build receiver depth. A familiar last name at least.
San Francisco signed undrafted rookie receiver Kerry Taylor to the team’s practice squad. That’s the nephew of longtime 49ers receiver John Taylor, who caught the game-winning touchdown in Super Bowl XXIII.
Morgan underwent surgery this week to insert screws into his broken right leg/ankle. He’s a free agent at the end of the year, and coach Jim Harbaugh called it a “priority” to re-sign Morgan. He was leading the team’s wideouts with 220 yards this year.
