NFL Free Agency 2012: Geoff Schwartz, 49ers, Begin Contract Negotiations, According to Report

According to the San Francisco Chronicle's Eric Branch the San Francisco 49ers and free agent lineman Geoff Schwartz have begun contract negotiations, looking to fill the void of Adam Snyder departing for the Arizona Cardinals.

"We're excited - we think San Francisco could be a great fit," said Deryk Gilmore, Schawrtz's agent. "We have to reach agreement on little things. If we can do that, I could see him being a Niner blocking for Alex (Smith) ... Hopefully, San Francisco knocks us out."

Gilmore also noted that Schwartz enjoyed meeting both head coach Jim Harbaugh and quarterbacks coach Geep Chryst during his visit as well.

Schwartz, the seventh-round pick of the Panthers in 2008, sat out last year with a hip injury but played every snap for Carolina in 2010, starting at both right guard and right tackle, possibly providing some extra versatility on the O-line for San Francisco if he decides to sign with them.
