Apr 30, 2006 at 10:12 PM--


Ray Fittipaldo, of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, reports San Francisco 49ers RB Michael Robinson said he will embrace his role as a running back.

Robinson added, "I won't resist the chance because I understand the way the world works. I think for you to be successful on any level you have to be a football player first. You can't just limit yourself to whatever role you want to play." He said he will be used as a third-down running back and a slot guy who would come out of the backfield to do some thing. The team has said they would give him a shot at quarterback.

Right after the NFL Draft, teams scramble to contact players that were not taken during the seven rounds. The 49ers have already started their part.

ScarletKnights.com reports that the 49ers have signed undrafted rookie free agent WR Chris Baker of Rutgers.

Not only was he the team's number one receiving



All-Pro Trent Williams discusses his role on the 49ers and the success of Deebo Samuel

Fresh off a regular season in which Trent Williams—the highest-paid offensive tackle in the NFL—put up the highest single-season PFF grade ever, and made the NFL's All-Pro team, it's obvious the San Francisco 49ers offensive tackle is playing the best football of his career, which is impressive because the 11-year veteran has always been an elite offensive lineman throughout his career, making nine Pro Bowl teams.
