The San Francisco 49ers announced today the signing of WR Ryan Whalen to a one-year deal. To make room for Whalen, the team has waived S Jered Bell.

Whalen, who will wear No. 81 with the 49ers, was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the sixth round of the 2011 NFL Draft. He appeared in 17 games over three yeas with the Bengals and had 11 receptions for 80 yards. He was released in August of 2014 and then signed by the Minnesota Vikings a year later, but only spent a month with his new team before being released on September 5, 2015.

Whalen played college football at Stanford, where he appeared in 48 games with 27 starts throughout his four-year career.

49ers Twitter and Facebook are melting down. All it took was one ugly loss, and many fans have already turned on the coaching staff, and the young quarterback, while declaring the season over.
