I am the newest member of the 49ers— Ricardo Lockette (@RicardoLockette) September 24, 2012
Lockette is filling the void left by rookie Nathan Palmer, who was signed by the Indianapolis Colts earlier today. Palmer joined the 49ers training camp as an undrafted player out of Northern Illinois University and impressed during the preseason with six catches for 93 yards and a touchdown.
The Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted free agent signed Lockette in 2011. He was cut during the final roster cuts in 2012, but resigned with the team onto the practice squad after clearing waivers. Lockette saw limited time in 2011, but played against the 49ers, finishing against his new employers with one reception for 44 yards.
