  • 49ers' Matt Cole: Healthy scratch for Week 16

    Cole (coach's decision) is inactive for Saturday's game against the Cardinals.

    San Francisco has plenty of depth at the wide receiver position for Week 16, with Richie James, River Cracraft and Jordan Matthews all available as depth options behind Brandon Aiyuk and Kendrick Bourne. The 24-year-old Cole just signed with the 49ers on Christmas Eve, so it's less than surprising he wasn't able to crack the lineup within such a short span.

  • 49ers' Matt Cole: Signed by San Francisco

    Cole was signed to a two-year contract by the 49ers on Thursday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Cole, who attended Division II McKendree University in Illinois, has been with the Dolphins' practice squad throughout his rookie campaign. He has yet to make an NFL appearance, but that could change soon given the two-year contract and the 49ers' depleted receiver corps. Cole could also contribute on special teams, as he returned both kickoffs and punts as a collegiate player.
