All indications are that the 49ers plan to stay within the building to replace waived wide receiver Braylon Edwards on their 53-man roster.
Ted Ginn and Kyle Williams are iffy for Sunday's regular-season finale against the St. Louis Rams. Ginn is improving after missing a game with a left ankle sprain. And Williams will likely be limited early in the week due to a concussion he sustained Saturday against the Seattle Seahawks.
Both Ginn and Williams are expected to 100 percent for the playoffs, so that would place the 49ers' wide-receiver position back at where it was for most of the season.
All 49ers might need is a short-term solution that could be best-filled with the promotion of either Joe Hastings or John Matthews from the practice squad.
If the 49ers were to look outside the building, the top candidate would likely be veteran Brian Finneran, who impressed the team during a workout in October when Brett Swain was signed.
The 49ers did not contact such veteran players as Jason Hill and Terrell Owens, who have histories with the franchise.
Owens went to Twitter to campaign for a job with the 49ers through his former teammate Donte Whitner.
And Whitner responded by publicly vouching for Owens:
