According to the 49ers' website, Jerry Rice Jr. was one of 64 prospects who took part in the workout. The younger Rice didn't have gaudy college numbers, but the workout gave him a chance to show what he can do.

Rice Jr. had nine catches for 69 yards in three seasons with the UCLA Bruins before transferring to UNLV. He caught 11 passes for 86 yards and a touchdown in his senior season with the Rebels.

The elder Rice played 238 games over 16 seasons with San Francisco. He hauled in 1,281 passes for 19,247 yards and 176 touchdowns while with the team, and those numbers helped him make 12 Pro Bowls as a 49er.

San Francisco took Rice with the 16th overall pick in the 1985 NFL draft, and the 49ers were rewarded with three Super Bowl championships. Now, the team will have the opportunity to add the legend's son if it so chooses.
