Giants eyeing Estes ... as a tight end

Mike Nolan said this week that he thinks Patrick Estes has potential and that he'd like to see the recently released left tackle back on the 49ers' roster at some point. But that's not stopping Estes, who cleared waivers yesterday, from making two stops in the Big Apple next week.
Estes will work out for the Jets on Monday as an offensive lineman. On Tuesday, he will visit the Giants, who are eyeing him as a tight end. Estes, of course, played tight end at the University of Virginia, and was converted to left tackle after he was drafted by the 49ers in the seventh round in 2005. His agent told me today that Estes has resumed catching footballs -- something he hasn't done regularly since 2004. The Giants showed interest in Estes prior to the 2005 draft. Estes was 280 pounds in 2005. He was around 310 pounds before getting cut.
Estes was released on Wednesday so that the 49ers could sign defensive end Atiyyah Ellison.


Matt was born in Blacksburg, Va., and attended the University of Virginia. He graduated in 1995, went to Northwestern for a journalism degree a year later, and got his first job at a South Carolina daily in 1997. He joined The Bee as a Metro reporter in 1999 and started covering the 49ers in 2003. His favorite player of all time is Darrell Green.
