Just re-signed 49’ers wide out Bryan Gilmore has been penciled in as the number 3 receiver on the squad, and he couldn’t’t be more thrilled with the development. “This is the place I want to be,” he said. “I did everything I could to make the team (in training camp). You have to move on. The NFL doesn’t owe anybody anything. It’s a privilege to play in the NFL.”
Gilmore came back to the team on Tuesday as the 9’ers released Taylor Jacobs. Tackle Patrick Estes was also signed, and the team released fullback Zak Keasey to make room for him. Gilmore tried to make it on other teams that needed help at the wide out spot – he worked out for the Texans, Rams and Raiders.
Right now though, he is getting ready to help out starters Arnaz Battle and Darrell Jackson, who make up one of the weakest wide out units in the league. “That’s what I’m preparing for,” he said. “We’ve got some great wide receivers. Darrell Jackson and Arnaz Battle, give them chances, they’ll make plays. It takes a lot for everything to happen on offense. You can’t blame one particular person or group.”
