New 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan has managed to take at least one member of his former team’s offense along with him to the Bay Area.

According to Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network, the 49ers are signing former Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Aldrick Robinson to a two-year contract. The deal is worth up to $6 million.

Robinson caught 20 passes for 323 yards and two touchdowns in Shanahan’s offense last season. He also played under Shanahan in Washington for three years from 2011-13. In 36 games in D.C. with Shanahan, Robinson caught 29 passes for 602 yards and five touchdowns.

  1. Garçon, Goodwin, Kerley and Robinson. It ain’t the prettiest group, but it’s miles above what the 49ers have had in a long while.

  2. OK, I’m not sure I’m getting this?! Can they just bank the $$$ they’re not spending this year and bring it out next offseason without any problem, to get the QB, etc., etc., etc., that they’ll still/also need next year? Isn’t there also a spending floor they have to spend up to, at the least?
    Besides, how about hiring some good players as opposed to iffy players who are part of Shanahan’s extended family of players. We all know what can happen (besides nepotism) when we hire relatives… sometimes the help they provide isn’t the greatest, right?

  3. I watched this guy since training camp. He plays hard and fast and stands out when on the field, but admittedly less so when Julio was out there. This is a good pick-up for the 49ers, unfortunately.
