Isaac Bruce is coming back to the 49ers. He was never going to leave, necessarily, but he was thinking about it.

The 49ers are better with Bruce, no question. Their current receivers now include: Bruce, Josh Morgan, Brandon Jones, Jason Hill, Arnaz Battle, Dominique Zeigler and Mark Bradford.

Bruce is the only 49ers receiver in his 30s. Battle is next at 29. The others are between 23 and 26. This is a mostly young group, in other words.
