49ers sign WR Swain

Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports the 49ers inked wide receiver Brett Swain, 26, a seventh-round selection of the Packers in 2008, to a one-year contract, said his agent, Bruce Tollner. He was among a trio of wideouts to work out for the team that reportedly included T.J. Houshmandzadeh, 34, Chris Chambers, 33, and Brian Finneran, 35.

Swain figures to have some familiarity with the 49ers’ system after spending his first three campaigns in Green Bay’s West Coast offense. He is also known for his sensational special-teams play, as he tallied a game-best three special teams stops in the Packers’ victory over the Steelers in Super Bowl XLV.
