Hall of Fame 49ers wide receiver Jerry Rice says Antonio Brown wants to play in San Francisco.

“He wants to come here really bad,” Rice told The Bay Area’s 95.7 The Game.

Over the weekend Brown, advertised he was FaceTiming with Rice and the three-time Super Bowl Champ told The Game, “Antonio and I, we have always kept in communication.”

“This guy, man, he’s a totally, complete team player,” Rice continued. “I don’t know what happened in Pittsburgh but I know that this guy, if he comes here to San Francisco, he’s going to do everything possible to help this team to win.”

Rice says the move would show San Francisco fans the organization is serious about winning.

“It sends a message to the fans, that, ‘Hey, look, we’re not looking down the road to win. We’re looking to win right now,’” said Rice. “And, he’s that type of player. Big playmaker that can make those big plays and really put a lot of fans in the stands.”

Rice adds he doesn’t know if the move will happen but if it was up to him he would make the move for Brown in a heartbeat.
