49ers agree to terms with ex-Seahawks tight end Morrah

Former Seahawks tight end Cameron Morrah will join Vernon Davis, Garrett Celek and, more than likely, a draft pick in Santa Clara this offseason after agreeing to a deal with the 49ers, a source confirmed.

Morrah, who played at Cal, was a seventh-round pick by the Seahawks in 2009. He has good size -- 6-3 251 pounds -- but an injury history. Seattle released him before the start of the 2012 season after he struggled with a toe injury. Morrah did not play last season.

Morrah, 26, never had more than nine catches in any of the three seasons he spent in Seattle, and he never has scored an NFL touchdown. News of his imminent signing first was reported by CBS Sports.

The 49ers had two draft-able tight ends, Stanford's Zach Ertz and San Jose State's Ryan Otten, at their facility today. They also have hosted Cincinnati's Travis Kelce, who like Ertz is considered one of the top 5 tight ends in the draft, and they have spent time with other would-be draft picks at the position.

That is, the team is widely expected to draft a tight end next week, and Morrah's addition is unlikely to alter those plans.
