Apparently, keeping extra kickers is what all the cool kids out West are doing.
Longwell hasn’t kicked in the league this season after being released by the Vikings in May, but was apparently convincing in the workout.
There was no word on a corresponding roster move. Hauschka returned to kick two field goals after the injury, though punter Jon Ryan handled kickoffs in Sunday’s win at Washington.
The 49ers are carrying two kickers at the moment, with Billy Cundiff coming aboard as insurance for veteran David Akers.
