Lawrie signed by 49ers

While a door closes for one former Yale tight end, one opens for another.

Three days after Chris Blohm was cut by the San Francisco 49ers, Nate Lawrie was picked up by the team.

Lawrie, originally drafted in the sixth round of the 2004 NFL draft by Tampa Bay, appeared in 25 NFL games with the Buccaneers, New Orleans Saints and Cincinnati Bengals. He has four NFL catches, two coming in the 2008 season with the Bengals.

Lawrie has played in the UFL with the Sacramento Mountain Lions and took part in some drills at Yale's pro day with the hopes of getting another shot at the NFL.

Blohm was signed by the 49ers as an undrafted rookie free agent on Aug. 8 but was cut three days later.
