One-time 49er Kentwan Balmer is now in Seattle, and the Seahawks have the early lead in landing another ex 49er, receiver Brandon Jones. Jones is visiting the Seahawks today, according to his agent, and the Vikings are interested in bringing him in tonight. The Raiders and Titans are among five additional teams who have shown interest. Jones caught only one pass for the 49ers last year. However, he's a big receiver with speed who averaged more than 12 yards a catch in four seasons with the Titans. Jones had just recovered from a hamstring strain when the 49ers waived him yesterday.
