Former Pitt Tight End Nate Byham signed a four-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers. The Niners drafted him in the sixth round of the NFL Draft this Spring.
Byham joins several Pitt Alumni out in San Francisco including last year's draft pick Scott McKillop, Andy Lee, and Shawntae Spencer, who's been offering some advice during the recent minicamp sessions:
As a proud University of Pittsburgh alum, Spencer was pleased to see another Panther drafted by the 49ers in consecutive seasons. Spencer approached rookie tight end Nate Byham in the locker room on Thursday to check in and offer advice. "He said it’s been tough and I told him, ‘Just keep swinging. Keep your head up and stay positive.’"
He's also been busy out there making charity visits. The 49er website has some video up of their new signee.
