49ers sign LB Jayson DiManche to fill empty roster spot

Aug 5, 2017 at 9:50 AM--

On Thursday morning, the San Francisco 49ers waived wide receiver Bruce Ellington, which left an open spot on the roster. The 49ers have announced that they have signed LB Jayson DiManche to a one-year deal to fill that vacant roster spot.

DiManche returns to the 49ers after signing with the team on April 7. He was released on May 2.

DiManche was originally signed by the Cincinnati Bengals as an undrafted free agent in May of 2013. In two seasons with Cincinnati, he appeared in 28 games and had one start. DiManche had 13 tackles and one pass defended during his time there.

Following his release by the Bengals prior to the start of the 2015 season, he spent time with the Kansas City Chiefs before appearing in one game with the Cleveland Browns. The Browns released DiManche that December and he was then signed to the Bengals' practice squad in January of 2016. DiManche spent the following training camp with the Bengals but was released that August. The next day, he signed with the Detroit Lions before being released on September 3, 2016.

The 2020 NFL season will be different. Very different. The impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the league will become even more evident when teams finally step onto football fields across the country. Players already feel the difference with training camps being conducted very cautiously. You've probably seen it already. Major League Baseball is playing sans fans in the stadium seats. The NBA looks...well...odd. Sports leagues are adapting to the circumstances, and the NFL is trying to navigate its way toward a 2020 season. That, as is the case with other leagues, will likely mean an absence of fans, taking away that aspect of home-field advantage. At least the home teams won't have to

Two writers for The Athletic, Matt Barrows and David Lombardi, recently took a shot at predicting the San Francisco 49ers' 53-man roster. That's not an easy task, given the unusual circumstances surrounding the offseason. NFL players haven't even practiced together in an official capacity. Although, that will happen soon, thanks to a recent agreement between the league and the NFL Players Association (NFLPA). Training camps will begin next week, once players undergo two separate COVID-19 tests. The first couple of weeks will focus on strength and conditioning and walk-throughs. Players will finally put on helmets on the 18th day and then pads on the

49ers intend to keep roster at 90 players for now; no positive COVID-19 tests so far

NFL teams will need to cut their 90-man rosters by 10 players before August 16. It sounds like the San Francisco 49ers won't be among the organizations doing so for now. The team intends to enter training camp with its full complement of players. "While several teams have been cutting players in recent days to reduce their rosters to 80 players, it appears the 49ers will remain at 90 for the time being," reports Matt Barrows of The Athletic. That means the 49ers must split their roster into two groups. The first would be composed of mostly rookies, while veterans will fill the second. The two groups will need to remain separate from each other. They can't be in the same building, on the same field, or in the same locker room, as explained by Barrows. Players also
