The San Francisco 49ers officially reinstated RB Glen Coffee from reserve/retired list and then placed him on waivers Friday.
This is interesting, considering that Coffee has been out of the NFL for several years now. Typically, when a team reinstates someone from the reserve/retired list, it’s because they’re looking to make a comeback in the NFL.
Coffee, 29, is a former third-round pick of the 49ers back in 2009. He elected to call it a career and retire from the NFL back in August of 2010 after just one year in the NFL.
In 2009, Coffee appeared in 14 games for the 49ers and rushed for 226 yards on 83 carries (2.7 YPC) to go along with 11 receptions for 76 yards receiving and one touchdown.
