With the Niners possibly going to a two-back set in 2009, they could use a good fullback to lead the way, and one guy that could be a big asset is Jets FB Tony Richardson. Here is a report from the NY Post about Richardson possibly coming aboard as a free agent:
Jets FB Tony Richardson could be headed to San Francisco when he becomes a free agent at the end of the month. The 49ers have just made former Jets running back coach, Jimmy Raye, their offensive coordinator and Richardson has a habit of following his coach. Richardson, 37, told the Sacramento Bee that he has not talked to the Jets about coming back next season and that signing with the 49ers is a possibility.
“That’s the one thing I’ve learned about the National Football League — you never say never,” Richardson said. “Free agency starts in February, so you never know. Never say never.”
