The 49ers added a special teams ace to their roster today. A day after Blake Costanzo signed with the Bears (note the 49ers didn’t seem to want him back) the 49ers have added his replacement. Some may ask why sign Cartwright and not Costanzo, well the answer is Cartwright can actually contribute in the running game and not just special teams. Wouldn’t be surprised to see Cartwright signing makes was for a Dixon release.
Jason LaCanfora first reported the signing, pending physical. Cartwright was a 7th round pick of the Redskins back in 2002. Last season he played with the Raiders.
