49ers planning to waive Takk McKinley after failed physical, per report

Nov 20, 2020 at 1:16 PM--


There was a report on Thursday that the San Francisco 49ers were "OK" with former Atlanta Falcons defensive end Takkarist McKinley failing a physical last week with the Cincinnati Bengals. The 49ers claimed the defender after the Bengals waived him.


It sounds like McKinley is about to hit the waiver wire for the third time in the last two weeks. He has been dealing with a groin injury.

According to Matt Barrows of The Athletic, McKinley failed his physical with the 49ers too, and the team plans to waive him. Barrows notes that this doesn't necessarily mean San Francisco is unwilling to re-sign the defensive end — assuming he goes unclaimed — once he is healthy.


The 49ers had hoped that McKinley could come in and provide a boost for a struggling pass rush that, like much of the roster, has been devastated by injuries this season. The 49ers sit at the bottom of the NFC West standings with a 4-6 record and hope to make a strong run during the season's final six games.

The San Francisco 49ers added some depth and experience to their offensive line on Friday, signing versatile veteran Senio Kelemete to a one-year deal. News of the signing was first reported by Mike Garafolo of NFL Media on Friday morning. The 49ers officially announced the move later in the day. To make room for Kelemete on the roster, the 49ers waived third-year lineman Justin Skule with an injured designation. Skule will be out for the 2021 season after tearing his ACL at practice earlier this week. Kelemete (6-3, 301) is in his ninth NFL season after being selected by the Arizona Cardinals in the fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft out of the University of

Offensive lineman Justin Skule is back with the San Francisco 49ers after being waived last week. He went unclaimed and reverted back to the team's injured reserve list. Skule will not count against the 90-man (91, really, with Alfredo Gutiérrez not counting) roster but his $894,887 salary will count against the cap. The team used the vacant roster spot to sign offensive lineman Senio Kelemete to a one-year deal. Skule suffered a torn ACL during practice on Monday, June 7. Safety Tarvarius Moore was injured during the same session, suffering a torn Achilles. Last week, he underwent successful surgery to repair the damage. San Francisco made



Bleacher Report lists Deebo Samuel as the 49ers' biggest X-factor for 2021

Brad Gagnon of Bleacher Report picked one player from each NFL roster who could be each team's biggest X-factor in 2021 (h/t to Kirk Larrabee). These are players who aren't quarterbacks or prototypical stars. That would be too easy. However, these 32 players' performances during the upcoming season could mean the difference between reaching the Super Bowl or missing the playoffs entirely for their respective teams. Who is Gagnon's pick for the San Francisco 49ers? The guidelines listed above throw out names like Jimmy Garoppolo, George Kittle, and Nick Bosa. It does leave third-year wideout Deebo Samuel, though, and he is the pick for Kyle Shanahan's



Hugh "The King" McElhenny Was a 49ers Franchise Savior

The San Francisco 49ers were one of three teams from the old All-American Football Conference to join the NFL in 1950. The others were the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Colts. When the schedule was announced, some NFL owners balked about playing in San Francisco because, they claimed, the cost of traveling to the West Coast was too high and that the 49ers' ticket prices were too low. The 49ers charged $3.60 for seats between the 30- and 50-yard line, $2.40 for other reserved seats, $1.80 for general admission, and 50 cents for children under twelve at Kezar Stadium. So then, team owner Tony Morabito hiked the tariff to $3.75, $3, and $2, maintaining 50 cents for youngsters. Still, the 49er prices were the lowest in the league.
