Good luck to Norris.
The San Francisco 49ers announced Tuesday that fullback Moran Norris has been signed as a free agent.

Norris (6-1, 254) is entering his sixth NFL season after spending one season with New Orleans in 2001 and the last four seasons with the Houston Texans.

Norris was originally a fourth-round draft choice in 2001 by New Orleans out of Kansas. Norris was claimed by Houston off waivers from New Orleans prior to the start of the 2002 season. During his NFL career, Norris has been utilized on special teams and as a part-time starter at fullback. He also has been used as a kickoff returner.

Last season in Houston, Norris played in all 16 games with five starts and had one reception for four yards and 12 special teams tackles.

Yeah the muscle on that team has gotten stronger with Norris and the addition of Vernon Davis.

I was on the Norris bandwagon as well. Good luck to him and hope he does well with SF.

Wish he could have hung around with us for some time paving ways...but understand the Kubiak decision.

I fear you are quite right on that one.

One of the best blocking FBs in the league IMO. I do understand why Kubiak let him go.

Poor Moran. He went from a bad team (last season) to a worse team. At least the money is good.

Because he cannot do anything BUT block. Kubiak wants a FB with some receiving skills too.

Good luck to Moran, he did a good job while he was here, but he just wasn't a passing threat like we have now with Cook and Hill. He should do a nice job blocking for Frank Gore next year. :thumbup

I liked him a lot although he didn't fit into Kubiak's system, so I'm happy to see him go someplace that will use him (hopefully).
