06:58 AM ET 05.07 | San Francisco isn't shy about getting creative with its second tight end, which makes the addition of MarQueis Gray that much more interesting. [Gray] was recruited at the University of Minnesota to play quarterback. But when he arrived there, the Golden Gophers already had a solid passer, Adam Weber, and they used Gray as a wide receiver his first two seasons. Gray caught 42 passes for 587 yards and five touchdowns in 2010. The following season, he moved to quarterback where he ran a read-option style offense. ... When [his senior] year ended, it was clear NFL teams felt his best position was tight end. That's where he lined up in the Texas vs. Nation all-star game, and he's been training with former NFL tight end Ben Utecht.

The Patriots might have a job for him on the field goal unit if he can run a snowplow.

Chances of making the 49ers 53 man roster; Slim and None. Chances of making the practice squad; Slim.
