As we approach the offseason, it seems the San Francisco 49ers wide receiver position doesn’t seem to be a cause for concern for them, but it seems they might be signing a top star for that position soon.
According to ESPN’s Mike Clay, he predicted in free agency that the San Francisco 49ers are likely to sign Indianapolis Colts’ receiver T.Y. Hilton.
“If the Colts upgrade to Allen Robinson, that will means the end of Hilton’s time with the team that drafted him. Hilton will certainly be looking to join a contender in his age-32 season, and the 49ers are a fit. Deebo Samuel (2019 second round) and Brandon Aiyuk (2020 first round) form a potentially outstanding duo, but injuries and inexperience loom large. Hilton would bring reliability and a veteran presence to the wide receiver room.”
Hilton had a decent performance during this season, as he closed it out with 56 catches for 762 yards and five touchdowns. He has been a Pro Bowler for four years and has five 1,000-yard seasons, with the highest being of 1,448 yards in 2016.
We will have to see if he will be making his way to the 49ers eventually.
