49ers Sixth-Rounder Kenneth Acker Signs Contract With Quill Pen
With draft picks signing deals with their new teams all over the place over the last week, things have started to run together without much standing out.
Enter cornerback Kenneth Acker, who was selected by the 49ers in the sixth round of the draft and signed his deal late last week in a way that makes him more memorable than the other players drafted that late in the process.
Acker took a page from Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson by signing his deal with a quill pen, a moment captured by the 49ers and shared on their Twitter account:

Though, memorable pen or not, Acker will now have to go about the business of trying to make the 49ers.
