When the San Francisco 49ers claimed Chris Harper off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks in early September they had big plans for him.The 49ers wanted the receiver to play a hybrid receiver-tight end role like the one former 49er Delanie Walker – who will face the 49ers on Sunday at Tennessee – had for the team. However, Harper, at least for now, won't get the chance to develop in San Francisco. Harper, whom Seattle cut as a rookie despite being a fourth-round pick, was cut Thursday by the 49ers.
