49ers sign undrafted wide receiver after his highlight reel goes viral on Twitter

May 5, 2023

Isaiah Winstead was an absolute stud for the East Carolina Pirates last year.

He caught 88 passes for 1,085 yards and six touchdowns. But the NFL Draft came and went, and his name went unannounced.

Of course, teams wind up signing undrafted free agents as soon as the draft officially concludes, so Winstead thought he'd get a deal, but one hadn't yet come.

So, Winstead, seemingly dumbfounded, posted some highlights on Twitter with a positive message.

"6’4 210 moving like this. No mini camp invite or UDFA deal. Behind the scenes on what I can do. With 88 catches & 1100 yds this past season… God makes no mistakes tho thank you in advanced," he wrote on Sunday.
