San Francisco 49ers Sign Veteran Wide Receiver

The San Francisco 49ers have signed veteran free-agent wide receiver Chris Conley to a one-year contract.

Conley had visited the team on Friday, and he previously played for the Kansas City Chiefs, Jacksonville Jaguars, Houston Texans, and Tennessee Titans.

While Conley's recent stints with the Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans in 2022 yielded only four receptions for 46 yards in nine games, with one start, his most productive season was in 2019 with the Jaguars. That year, he caught 47 passes for 775 yards and five touchdowns in 16 games on 90 targets.

Conley's experience and versatility will be valuable to the 49ers as he competes for a spot behind their top receivers, including Brandon Aiyuk, Deebo Samuel, and Jauan Jennings.

Despite primarily serving as a depth receiver throughout his career, Conley's potential contribution to the 49ers could provide additional depth to an already impressive group of receivers.

Over his eight-year career, Conley has amassed 217 receptions for 2,853 yards and 15 touchdowns on 217 targets and across 109 games played. Photo Credit:  Andrew Nelles / / USA TODAY NETWORK
