Well it didn’t take Charly Martin long to find a new home! Just yesterday, Charly was released by the Seattle Seahawks. I don’t believe anyone expected Martin to be claimed but the receiver needy 49ers came calling. They claimed Martin and will bring the backup slot receiver into camp to compete for a job.
Many people thought the 49ers would have signed free agent Austin Collie, whom they brought in for a workout, but are playing the waiting game to see if their young players can step it up. Martin brings special teams play with him, something Collie probably would not be asked to do considering his propensity to get injured.
