The San Francisco 49ers officially signed eight free agents on Thursday.

Here they are, courtesy of CSN Bay Area:

  • C Sherman Carter (Tennessee State)
  • RB MarQueis Gray (Minnesota)
  • LS Kevin McDermott (UCLA)
  • DB Darryl Morris (Texas State)
  • G Patrick Omameh (Michigan)
  • NT Mike Purcell (Wyoming)
  • DB Lowell Rose (Tulsa)
  • P Anthony Santella (Illinois)

MarQueis Gray is the most fascinating addition, as he is an extremely versatile player. He is listed as a running back, but has played as a wide receiver and quarterback as well for Minnesota, excelling at all three positions.

The 49ers have 83 players on their 90-man roster as of now.
