Default 49ers Sign Rossum

The 49′ers made a minor roster today, picking up just released kick returner Allen Rossum, who was let go by the Steelers on Saturday. Rossum was a late training camp addition for the Steelers, and was their primary kick returner last season, taking one back against the 49′ers for a touchdown in their week three contest at Heinz Field. Overall, Rossum took back 38 kicks for 885 yards for a 23.3 average. He also plays conerback, but really plays that role on a limited basis. Last season at corner he made just five tackles for the Steelers.

It appears SF is now starting to pick up the pieces we have no use for.

happy to see he found a team. He was just mediocre last season as a returner. I think the coaching staff will have something in mind when looking for a returner that can field a punt and get some return yards.

The answer is either in the draft or waiver wire.

He actually gave me some piece of mind. The only bone headed move I THOUGHT he made was when he went to grab the ball after one of the defenders had touched it. As it turns out, that was a smart move on Rossum's part due to a rule that many of us were not aware of. Until the Steelers show that they can fix the special teams, getting rid of him was not a good move IMO.
