In need of depth at wide receiver, the San Francisco 49ers have signed Mohamed Sanu to a one-year deal.

Kyle Shanahan hinted at the addition during a new conference on Monday.

"We'll see how these injuries go, but I love Sanu," Shanahan said. "He's a hell of a player, so him being out there is always a possibility ... I wouldn't rule that out at all. He's available and he's definitely a guy I really respect and I think everyone in this league respects. So, we'll see how it goes this week."

Sanu was expected to report to the 49ers on Tuesday night. Due to COVID-19 protocols, the earliest the wide receiver could practice is Friday.
