Jets sign former 49ers wide receiver

Quinton Patton signed with the Jets on Thursday, the team announced.

The 49ers selected the wide receiver in the fourth round (128th overall) of the 2013 draft.

He caught just three passes in each of his first two seasons in San Francisco.

In 2015, he registered 30 catches for 394 yards and one touchdown.

Last season, he recorded 408 receiving yards on 37 receptions.

In the 49ers Week 14 loss to the Jets, Patton caught four passes for 31 yards.

Patton visited New York last weekend.

Report: 49ers UFA linebacker to visit Seahawks

Gerald Hodges is in search of a new team and he's looking at a division rival of the 49ers.

The unrestricted free agent is scheduled to visit the Seahawks on Wednesday, according to ESPN.

Acquired in October of 2015 from Minnesota for a sixth-round pick, the four-year pro played in 25 games over the past two seasons with the 49ers.

In his time with San Francisco, the former fourth-round pick recorded three sacks, two interceptions and one fumble recovery.

But he was not considered a fit for the new 49ers under general manager John Lynch and coach Kyle Shanahan. Hodges was deactivated for a game late in the season at Atlanta for breaking team rules. He did not offer an explanation or apology

The 49ers have signed three linebackers through two weeks of free agency: Malcolm Smith, Brock Coyle and Dekoda Watson.
