Wiggins Signs With 49ers

Elk Grove grad Kenny Wiggins gets a second chance with the Niners
One of the nicest young men to ever play football here in Elk Grove, Kenny Wiggins, will get a second chance to make the roster of the San Francisco 49ers next season.



The 49ers announced last week they have signed Wiggins along with offensive guard Garrett Chisolm to Reserve/Future contracts.
Chisolm (6-6, 299) was originally signed by the Miami Dolphins as an undrafted free agent on 7/28/11, and later added to their practice squad on 9/4. Chisolm was later released by the Dolphins on 9/20. He also spent time on the Carolina Panthers and Baltimore Ravens practice squads in 2011.
Wiggins (6-6, 314) was signed by the 49ers as an undrafted free agent on 7/27/11, and was later released following training camp. He was signed to the Baltimore Ravens practice squad on 11/28 and spent the remainder of the season with the unit.
Wiggins, a 23-year old native of Elk Grove, CA, appeared in 42 career games at Fresno State. As a Bulldog, he earned All-Western Athletic Conference first-team honors as a senior in 2010 and All-WAC second-team in 2009.
