We can remove another NFC West unrestricted free agent from the pool of available players.

Cameron Morrah, a Seattle Seahawks seventh-round draft choice from the Tim Ruskell era, agreed to terms with the San Francisco 49ers. He joins Jason Jones and Alan Branch as the only UFAs from the Seahawks to join another team this offseason. Morrah spent the 2012 season on injured reserve.

Injuries have severely limited Morrah to this point in his career.

A 39-yard reception from Matt Hasselbeck during a memorable 41-36 playoff victory over the New Orleans Saints stands as a career highlight for him. The reception set up one of four Hasselbeck touchdown passes.

This signing carries interest in the NFC West almost entirely because Morrah played for another team in the division. His addition to the 49ers' roster should not significantly affect the team's approach to the draft. Morrah has played in 27 regular-season games and two postseason games, however, so he does have some experience.
