The San Francisco 49ers were reportedly one of three teams in the running to acquire rugby star Jarryd Hayne. He will officially announce his decision today. According to The Daily Telegraph, that decision will be the Detroit Lions.
The press conference will be held in Sydney, Australia.
The former Parramatta Eels star clocked in a 4.53 40-yard time. Hayne, who is 27 years old, quit the National Rugby League only 4 months ago.
Hayne won two Dally M Medals for the NRL's player of the year in 2009 and 2014. During a press conference, Hayne shockingly announced his departure from rugby for the NFL in October.
He hopes to play running back in the NFL, but will also likely be used as a return specialist.
