According to John Clayton of ESPN, the 49ers are currently negotiating with Browns wide receiver Antonio Bryant. Bryant is in the Santa Clara/San Francisco area meeting with the team this weekend.
Rumors are going around that Bryant may have already signed a contract with the team and that it will be announced tomorrow. While likely, these rumors have not been confirmed by a creditable source yet and nothing will be known until Monday.
Bryant spent the last two seasons with the Cleveland Browns and was drafted in 2002 by the Dallas Cowboys. Known throughout his career as a troubled player, Nolan and the team may be willing to take a risk on him. Statistically, last season was his best year when he amassed 1009 yards receiving on 69 catches with 4 touchdowns.
Bryant may be able to improve a weak 49ers receiving group.
