Brandon Lloyd started his NFL career with the San Francisco 49ers in 2003. Now, he gets a chance to revive it with the team that initially drafted him.

The 49ers have agreed to a one-year deal with the free agent wide receiver, and Lloyd will join what is becoming a crowded depth chart. The Niners currently have Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin, Quinton Patton and Kassim Osgood as safe bets to be locked into their roster, and San Francisco is also expected to take a receiver in the draft.

Lloyd, who did not play last season, was most recently employed by the New England Patriots in 2012. For his career, he has 385 receptions for 5695 yards and 35 touchdowns. He played for the 49ers from 2003-2005 before being traded to the Washington Redskins. In 2005, he caught Alex Smith‘s first career touchdown pass.
