The San Francisco 49ers have signed wide receiver Keshawn Martin to a two-year contract, according to a report from NFL insider Rand Getlin.
Martin (5-11, 195) is in his fifth NFL season and has 62 catches for 685 yards and five touchdowns on his career. Martin was a fourth-round draft pick of the Houston Texans in the 2012 draft and most recently played with the New England Patriots, for whom he started eight games and caught 24 passes for 269 yards and two touchdowns in 2015. Martin was released by the Patriots in the preseason during the final round of roster cuts.
Martin also has extensive experience as a return man, with 78 career kick returns (25.2 average, 75 long) and 94 punt returns (9.1 average, 87TD long).
Adding Martin would fill the roster spot vacated by offensive lineman Anthony Davis, who retired on Monday.
