The San Francisco 49ers have been in need of depth at the tight end position ever since Delanie Walker elected to sign with the Tennessee Titans in March.
With only Vernon Davis and Garrett Celek as the only two true tight ends on the roster, the 49ers were in need of additional help. According to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com, the 49ers are expected to sign former Seattle Seahawks tight end Cameron Morrah.
Morrah played college football in the Bay Area at the University of California-Berkeley and was a seventh round selection by the Seahawks in 2009. Morrah has struggled with injuries the last two seasons. He played in just nine games in 2011 as a toe injury forced him to begin the season on the physically unable to perform list. The toe continued to be an issue for Morrah last year as he landed on injured reserve at the end of training camp.
Morrah has appeared in 27 games in four years and has 16 catches for 194 yards.
