Jerry Rice Jr. Gets a Shot With 49ers

Wide receiver Jerry Rice Jr., son of Hall of Famer Jerry Rice, will attend the San Francisco 49ers' rookie minicamp, in a report by ESPN.

Rice Jr. is the son of legendary 49ers wide receiver Jerry Rice. He played collegiately for UCLA and UNLV, where he caught 20 passes combined.

He said via Twitter on Monday that he is "working for the next opportunity ... Appreciate the Ravens for getting my feet wet. Now preparing for #49ers this weekend."

"Yeah, I'll tell you, Jerry Rice, Jr. has done a nice job," Harbaugh told the Ravens' official website on Saturday. "First of all, he is a really good athlete. He doesn't have his dad's size, but he's sure got his athleticism. When you watch him run, he runs in a real similar way.

"And the other thing is he's got that West Coast offense down. He has probably had that playbook since he was in the cradle. He knows all the rules on the crossing routes and what to do, very good hands, very smooth athlete. He did a real nice job."

Rice Jr., 5-foot-11 and 185 pounds, isn't as tall or as big as his father. Still, John Harbaugh said the way Rice Jr. runs is comparable to Jerry Rice -- and that he has a complete understanding of the West Coast offense that his father used to become a Hall of Fame reciever.


The three-day minicamp begins Friday and runs through Sunday, with Jim Harbaugh presiding over the events.
