The San Francisco 49ers have signed WR Brandon Carswell to a two-year contract. In order to make room for Carswell on the roster, the team waived TE Cameron Morrah.

The Bay Area native graduated from Milpitas High School, where he earned San Francisco Chronicle All-Metro First-Team and San Jose Mercury News All-Area MVP honors, as a senior.
