The San Francisco 49ers will be signing two players who attended the team's three-day rookie minicamp over the weekend for a tryout. Offensive lineman Richard Levy of UConn and safety Chanceller James of Boise State will join the 49ers roster. Both were undrafted free agents.

News of Levy's signing comes from Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area. News of James' signing comes from Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee.

On Monday, the 49ers released running back DuJuan Harris, who signed a one-year contract in March to return to the team. On Sunday, the 49ers released wide receiver KD Cannon of Baylor. The team may not be done making roster moves as the team continues to evaluate the available personnel.

The 6-foot-6 and 316-pound Levy started all 37 games for the Huskies over the past three seasons.

In three seasons with the Broncos, the 6-foot-2 and 208-pound James accumulated 170 tackles, 10.5 for a loss, two sacks, four interceptions and seven passes defensed.

Mostert burst onto the scene last season, and the NFL took notice when he rushed for 220 yards and four touchdowns on 29 carries against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game. "I would feel bad if I didn't say how proud I am of
