49ers signed WR Tavon Austin.
Austin most recently recorded 19 touches for 247 yards and two scores as Dallas' "web-back" last year. The additions of both J.J. Nelson and Austin more importantly confirm that Deebo Samuel (foot) remains uncertain for the team's season opener on September 13. Perhaps Kyle Shanahan is the key to unlocking 29-year-old Austin's career 6.8 yards per carry as a misplaced receiver through seven NFL seasons.
