49ers attempted to claim former Chiefs FB John Lovett, who went to the Packers

Jul 31, 2020 at 8:00 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers attempted to add a fullback to their roster. Field Yates of ESPN reports that the team put in a claim for former Kansas City Chiefs fullback John Lovett. The Green Bay Packers, however, were awarded Lovett on Thursday.


The Chiefs released Lovett on Wednesday. He was a quarterback for Princeton in college. The Chiefs signed Lovett as an undrafted free agent in 2019, converting him to a hybrid who could potentially contribute at fullback, running back, and even tight end.

Lovett landed on injured reserve with a shoulder injury after one preseason appearance with the Chiefs.

San Francisco has two fullbacks on its roster — starter Kyle Juszczyk and rookie Josh Hokit. The team continues to seek help for All-Pro tight end George Kittle, and has reportedly had internal discussions about the possibility of adding veteran Delanie Walker or Jordan Reed.

Former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens looked pretty fast while showing that he still has some NFL-level speed, even at 46 years old.

Former 49ers quarterback Alex Smith cleared for football activity

Alex Smith had been through a lot since his horrific leg injury on November 18, 2018. There was so much doubt that the former No. 1 overall pick by the San Francisco 49ers would ever play football again after a life-threatening infection, several surgeries, and a lengthy rehab that followed. Through the lens of an E:60 documentary, "Project 11," football fans received a glimpse of what Smith endured as he worked back from a gruesome compound fracture of his right leg. The quarterback isn't just lucky to have his leg; he is fortunate to be alive. Smith was with his third NFL team at the time of the injury and was five years removed from his time in the Bay Area. It was his first season with Washington, and maybe—just maybe—it won't be his
