2020 49ers 53-player roster breakdown at Saturday cut-down deadline

Sep 5, 2020 at 3:31 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have their 53-player roster after three days' worth of moves, which started on Thursday.

Below is a breakdown, position-by-position, of the players who remain. Of course, this could change based on any transactions that take place after 1 p.m. on Saturday.

NFL teams can put in a claim for any of the over 1,100 new free agents who were waived by their respective former teams until 9 a.m. PT on Sunday.

The 49ers will also begin putting together a 16-player practice squad at 10 a.m. on Sunday. For the 2020 season, each NFL practice squad can carry up to six players with an unlimited amount of NFL experience.

Linebacker Fred Warner begins the season on the reserve/COVID-19 list and does not count against the 53-man roster. The 49ers apparently left a spot open for him as the team currently has 52 players on the active roster.

Rumor: Jets turned down 1st-round pick from 49ers for Sam Darnold

By David Bonilla
Apr 15, 2021

There is a rumor from Cecil Lammey of The Fan 104.3 and Football Guys that the New York Jets turned down a first-round pick offered by the San Francisco 49ers earlier this offseason for quarterback Sam Darnold (h/t to Matt Audilet of The Spun). Of course, this was when the Niners sat at No. 12 overall, before trading up last month to the No. 3 spot. What on Earth would keep Joe Douglas and company from jumping at an offer like that? Lammey states that there were some concerns surrounding Zach Wilson's shoulder, and the Jets wanted to wait until the former BYU quarterback's pro day to evaluate the shouder's status. Wilson's pro day was on March



Why PFF sees QB Justin Fields as a 49ers fit in latest mock draft

Pro Football Focus released its latest mock draft, courtesy of analyst Ben Linsey. The San Francisco 49ers are highly anticipated to select a quarterback following their recent trade up to the No. 3 spot. They'll have their choice of some good options. With Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson nearly a lock to go No. 1 and No. 2, San Francisco can go with Justin Fields of Ohio State, Trey Lance of North Dakota State, or Mac Jones of Alabama. Linsey has San Francisco going with the player who has been the popular choice among 49ers fans—Fields. "Fields' game has been put under the



Fowler: 49ers' draft moves could change plans for Jimmy Garoppolo

By David Bonilla
Apr 5, 2021

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is set to earn about $25 million this year. Whomever they pick at No. 3 overall will have a cap hit of about $6.2 million in 2021, per OverTheCap.com. If the gap between the two players isn't seen as great—and a lot of that may depend on actually getting the rookie into the building and seeing how fast he can progress—that could accelerate the plan to part ways with Garoppolo. Maybe something happens before the draft. Maybe it happens during, after, or even next year. For now, the 49ers sound comfortable keeping Garoppolo around for another season while their rookie quarterback sits and learns. It's a prudent plan considering the roster is built to compete for a championship right now. On Sunday, ESPN's



Peter King weighs in on Jimmy Garoppolo's status with 49ers, future with Patriots

By David Bonilla
Apr 5, 2021

NBC Sports' Peter King weighed in on Jimmy Garoppolo, his status with the San Francisco 49ers, and his potential future with the New England Patriots, the team the quarterback spent his first three-and-a-half NFL seasons with. First, the 49ers. Count King among those who aren't confident that San Francisco will trade Garoppolo this year. The team has publicly stated that it plans to enter Week 1 with Garoppolo as the starter. Nothing the 49ers do at No. 3 may change that. Head coach Kyle Shanahan seems content with letting a rookie sit and learn for a year, which will be extremely beneficial considering his offense's complexity. Said general manager John Lynch last week:
