With Deebo Samuel and Richie James Jr. on the shelf, the 49ers signed Tavon Austin last week. Now without Jalen Hurd for the entire season and knocks to interior linemen Ben Garland and Weston Richburg, San Francisco called on more reinforcements.
The 49ers have signed WR Jaron Brown and OL Hroniss Grasu pending COVID 19, according to Ian Rapoport.
