The 49ers hosted visits with three wide receivers this week: Chaz Schilens, Mario Manningham and Brandon Lloyd.

It appears as if they won't have a chance to negotiate Lloyd's return to San Francisco, as reports are indicating the athletic receiver has reached an agreement with the New England Patriots.

In 2010, Lloyd led the league with 1,448 yards receiving, when he caught 77 passes, 11 of them for touchdowns.

Schilens signed with the Jets on Friday, and Manningham is said to be in talks with the Rams.
