49ers Sign TE Chris Blohm

Posted by Scott Kegley on August 8, 2011 – 8:08 PM

The San Francisco 49ers announced they have signed TE Chris Blohm to a three-year deal.

Blohm (6-4, 262) played collegiately at Yale, where he appeared in 30 games (17 starts), and registered 27 receptions for 270 yards with two touchdowns. In 2010, he was the recipient of the Greg Dubinetz Memorial Trophy, which is awarded to the Yale lineman who best exemplifies the spirit of Greg Dubinetz.

The 22-year old native of San Francisco, CA, starred at St. Ignatius High School and was named St. Ignatius Lineman of the Year and first-team all-conference as a senior.

Blohm will wear No. 47.

    This seems like a nice pick up to fill the hole due to injury…

    well, here’s another no namer signed but the coach must see something in him. maybe its the systems new found love for the TE position. Maybe this is going to give them some more looks to confuse the Defense with.

    Blocking TE that is all.

    Seriously, I hear you all complain so much about “another no namer” yet who do you guys know from college other than what you hear from the media? Do you conduct research on football players? Last I check you’re just another no namer typing behind the computer calling yourself a 49er fan. As a TRUE 49er fan, I stand behind us no matter what happens. As for you “no namers” why don’t you apply as a NFL Scout since you know soooo much about football players.

    Ashamed to be a fan. We sign an undrafted rookie blocking TE, and all some of the other fans can do is whine about how he’s a “no-namer”. Really? He’s a pure blocking TE as far as I’ve seen from watching tape, and doesn’t look to bad at it either.

    kid has solid numbers, maybe harbaugh can make something out of him

    True a lot of unknown names but i do think the niners are headed for a postive season. Go niners!

    Remember, Tom Brady and Kurt Warner were no namers! Sometimes there is a nugget there.

    We seem to get burnt when we don’t get our local guys. I’m sure we’re going to make good use of him!

    another yale TE? Eric Johnson comes to mind. seems like harbaugh is trying to build a foundation with quality people this season and will go for quality players next year

    The 49ers don’t recruit names, they recruit talent.

    wow @DYENNY that actually made me laugh out loud

  19. By Chris on Aug 9, 2011 | Reply

    I like to see the no namers as well. Better then signing a bunch of has beens for too much money and gettin nowhere! At least this way we have a chance to find something good!

    Can Ronald McDonald or Fred Flinstone bench 225 pounds thirty times? Give him a chance.

  21. By Rich on Aug 9, 2011 | Reply

    You gotta spell “Flintstone” before you can sign him.
    Kid has as good or better pro day numbers than Kyle Rudolph, top TE in the draft…not straightline fast, but srong (30 reps 225) and decent quickness. Role player

    Enough with the curse words! We need a veteran QB. Alex Smith has had plenty of chance to turn it around, we need a veteran QB who is successful!.

    Why does every post have to turn into an Alex conversation…Give it a rest, hes with us and we are stuck with him, so show him your support after all hes part of our team…Go Niners!!!

    DYENNY must b a seahawk or cardinal or a hard headed ram….just not a 9er

    Why complain about signing any TE? We have V Davis and D Walker, We all know if this new blocking TE even plays that either Vernon or Delani will be on the field also with the two TE set, whats it gonna hurt to have another blocker on the field with the ability to catch as well? As for Alex, he’s not to blame for all our losses, he’s a hard worker and he’s hungry, he will do great with the new system, he’s having a great training camp, he should have been playing the WC offense his whole nfl career.

    everyone thats keeps ranting on about signing no namers, or another lost year for frisco dont know jack about what they are talking about. as i see it, we have a new coach who turned a strugling stanford college team in 4 to win their first BCS title in program history. not saying frisco will win superbowl this year, but i feel harbaugh will turn the 49ers into a dynasty all over again. new guys or not, we have come a long way, and have added a few veterans to the roster in edwards, whitner,rogers, goodwin, and akers, i feel we have a solid start at this season and have something to prove as a contender this year

    Delaney Walker looked great at Wembley when Davis was injured. I like this signing. Yeah he’s primarily a blocking TE but he gives a big target sneaking into the flats in goal line situations and gives flexibility in formations.

    Imagine defending against 3TE 1RB and a WR and the flexibility that gives you, especially when Davis can line up in the a slot position too. Davis is the key to creating mismatches everywhere and other TE options will sell the run more. Maybe one of them will even line up at FB occasionally?

    Bring on the play action!

    Augustin you are obviously not from San Francisco. If you were you would never say frisco.

  31. By chazz for 9ers on Aug 10, 2011 | Reply

    Did any one remember the no namer, Jerry Rice? Or Steve Yound?

  32. By dmorris49 on Aug 11, 2011 | Reply

    I see nothing wrong with signing another TE. When running the west coast offense u need multiple TE’s . Think Brent Jones if u will ! I think he was a awesome TE for the 49ers in there heydays . GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO 49er’s !!!!!!

    You have not got anything to worry about now…. He’s been CUT..

  34. By JG on Aug 11, 2011 | Reply

    Chazz: Im from SF and I say frisco all the time. But thats just one more generalization from a lot of hot-air-spewin’ folks on this particular thread. And besides…They released this guy so the point is null.

    Go 49ers! Right now it game time.Later its blame time. Lets just go out there and work on the players we have, names or not and lets see what this years team can do.We need to make sure Alex Smith can throw down the field with confidence and execution. We have weapons can we tie them togather thats the question.Go 2011 49ers!

    Blohm has been waived.

    Hey you guys, JH is known for multipal tight end formations. Sometimes three on one play. So, before you start complaining, why not see what he has in mind. This could be something good. Go Niners!!!!

  38. By caballoLocox on Aug 12, 2011 | Reply

    Im cant wait to see 9ers play Saints…. but Harbaugh was a good College coach but hes no Bill Belichick… hes not gonna make a Miracle.. it takes time to be successful…. so you all better wait.

    With Alex Smith at QB its gonna be another Long Season!

    So better Quit the ” Luck NEXT YEAR” or “Superbowl all the way”

    CAUSE its annoying!

    On Blohm being a no-namer is a question of wait and see, for one you never know how a player might work out with the kind of offense and level of play of an NFL team. you just gotta keep the faith. Also once Harbaugh decided to stick with Alex Smith I figured he deserves another chance. If coach can do it for USC why not the RED AND GOLD. GO NINERS!

    According to the 49ers transaction link Blohm was waived 3 days after being signed to a three year contract.
