The 49ers signed wide receiver Brandon Lloyd, who didn’t play in the NFL last season, to a one-year contract, the team announced Tuesday.

San Francisco selected Lloyd in the fourth round of the 2003 draft. He was a member of the 49ers from 2003-05, when he caught 105 passes for 1,510 yards and 13 touchdowns. That included leading the team with 48 receptions, 733 yards receiving and five TD catches in 2005.

Lloyd has also played for the Washington Redskins (2006-07), Chicago Bears (2008), Denver Broncos (2009-11), St. Louis Rams (2011) and New England Patriots (2012) during his career before sitting out last season.

In his most recent NFL season, the 32-year-old Lloyd caught 74 passes for 911 yards with the Patriots.

His most productive NFL season came in 2010 with the Broncos when he caught 77 passes for 1,448 yards and 11 TDs.

NOTE: Bay Area News Group columnist Tim Kawakami reported sources indicated to him its possible linebacker Aldon Smith won’t play for the team in 2014 after his most recent run-in with the law at Los Angeles International Airport. ... The 49ers, who have had a rash of recent legal troubles involving players, did receive one bit of good news Tuesday. A case against offensive lineman Daniel Kilgore in his hometown of Kingsport, Tenn., for public intoxication was dismissed. Comcast SportsNet Bay Area reported Kilgore will also get an expungement, so the case will be wiped off his record.
