Report: WR Jones to visit Seattle today

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee is reporting that former San Francisco 49ers receiver Brandon Jones will visit the Seattle Seahawks today.

Jones, 27 was recently released by the 49ers. The Seahawks have a tie with San Francisco with front office executive Scot McCloughan, who worked as general manager for the Niners.

At 6-1, 212 pounds, Jones had injury issues with the Niners, only finishing with one catch for 18 yards last year for San Francisco.

McCloughan signed Jones to a five-year, $16 million deal last year as a potential deep threat, but he ended serving mostly as a special teams player.

Seattle currently has 10 receivers on the roster right now.

Jones is the latest former San Francisco player the team has showed interest in after trading for defensive tackle Kentwan Balmer this week, the first player McCloughan drafted while with San Francisco.
