5 Still Unsigned Free Agents San Francisco 49ers Should Contact

Head coach Jim Harbaugh and the 49ers coaching staff may still be considering the addition of free agents in 2013.

It may be hard to believe, but the San Francisco 49ers still have some needs.

As the 49ers move forward through Organized Team Activities (OTAs), the team is developing its depth charts, determining which players are leading position battles, and figuring out who shall start as well as those who will serve as backups.

Prior to OTAs, the 49ers enjoyed a solid 2013 draft, coming away with 11 players to bolster an already-strong NFL franchise.

Some of these prospects may fill immediate needs.  Rookies like safety Eric Reid, tight end Vance McDonald and wide receiver Quinton Patton may have that immediate impact on the 49ers' 2013 season.  Others, like linebacker Nick Moody or injured running back Marcus Lattimore, may have to wait their turn to climb the depth charts.

In spite of the additions, San Francisco still has some legitimate concerns heading into 2013.  While most of the starters are all but in place, there are some possibilities of reaching out to free agents still on the market.  The 49ers could afford to sign a few players that may help establish depth or perhaps even acquire a starter.

Make no mistake, San Francisco wants to get back to the Super Bowl in 2014 and win it all this time.  If that means signing a free agent or two at this point during the offseason, even if to just compete for playing time and roster depth, the 49ers would do it in a heartbeat.

Here are five still-remaining free agents that San Francisco should consider signing to play 2013 in a 49ers uniform.
