NFL Free Agency: FB Rock Cartwright Joins 49ers According to Report

The San Francisco 49ers continue to make some waves in free agency as the NFL Network's Jason La Canfora is reporting that veteran fullback Rock Cartwright is heading West across the Bay, jumping ship from the Oakland Raiders to join to 49ers for the 2012 season.

Rock is a special teams assassin and bruising tailback that will certainly help fill some the FB void the 49ers had, who used converted rookie Bruce Miller there much of the year after playing defense in college while Moran Norris is a free agent this year. The 10 year veteran will see most of his time as a backup and on special teams.

Just a few days ago he won the Raiders Commitment to Excellence Award for the second straight time for his outstanding character and determination. Cartwright spent his first eight seasons with the Washington Redskins, before heading to the Raiders for the pervious two.
