49ers sign fourth-round pick Quinton Patton


Quinton Patton, the 49ers draft pick who got so excited when he was drafted that he bought his own plane ticket and showed up in San Francisco before he was allowed to under league rules, is officially under contract.

The 49ers have announced that Patton, one of their two fourth-round picks, has signed his four-year rookie contract.

In two seasons at Louisiana Tech, Patton started all 25 games at wide receiver and was first-team All-WAC in both seasons. He caught 183 passes for 2,594 yards and 24 touchdowns in his two college seasons.

The 49ers have also announced that they claimed long snapper Kyle Nelson off waivers from the Chargers and waived punter Anthony Santella.

    As a close friend of the Pattons and to those in their extended family, I can honestly say nobody loves talking, watching, learning and playing football as much as youngster Quinton

    I’m definitely more excited about this kid than I ever was for Jenkins.. however, I hear that Jenkins has made some progress this off season. We will see.

    Damn, I hate hearing the news about one of our Dallas natives, Crabtree. He and Dez we’re going to light it up. Please work hard and and get back on the field. They need you, there is no REPLACEMENT for you.
