49ers roster moves: Anthony Zettel retires; Davin Bellamy signed; Jauan Jennings, Emmanuel Moseley activated

Aug 6, 2021 at 9:59 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers have announced that defensive lineman Anthony Zettel has retired from the NFL, which opened up a spot on the San Francisco roster. In a corresponding move, the team has signed defensive lineman Davin Bellamy to a one-year deal.

The 49ers have also activated wide receiver Jauan Jennings and cornerback Emmanuel Moseley from the reserve/COVID-19 list. That leaves safety Jaquiski Tartt as the lone player on the team's reserve/COVID-19 list.

The 49ers Communications staff provided the following rundown.



Bellamy (6-5, 259) originally entered the NFL after signing with the Houston Texans as an undrafted free agent on May 11, 2018. Throughout his career, he has spent time on the Texans (2018 & 2020) and Cincinnati Bengals (2019) practice squads. He later signed a Reserve/Future contract with the Tennessee Titans on January 14, 2021 and was released by the team on May 17.

A 26-year-old native of Chamblee, GA, Bellamy attended the University of Georgia where he appeared in 48 games (27 starts) and registered 135 tackles, 13.0 sacks, five forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

Zettel (6-4, 275) was originally drafted by the Detroit Lions in the sixth round (202nd overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft. Throughout his five-year career with the Lions (2016-17), Cleveland Browns (2018), Cincinnati Bengals (2019), 49ers (2019) and New Orleans Saints, he appeared in 50 games (16 starts) and registered 76 tackles, 7.5 sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.

A 27-year-old native of West Branch, MI, Zettel attended Penn State University where he appeared in 50 games and registered 110 tackles, 20.0 sacks, 14 passes defensed, three interceptions, two fumble recoveries and two forced fumbles.

WR Jauan Jennings delivers career performance when 49ers need it most

With the postseason on the line, wide receiver Jauan Jennings delivered the biggest performance of his NFL career for the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday—although maybe that should come as no surprise, based on how he's played over the second half of the season. Jennings has been a pleasant surprise for the 49ers this year after joining the team as a seventh-round selection in the 2020 NFL Draft out of the University of Tennessee. He spent time on the practice squad last year while also battling injury, then he had to battle for his spot on the roster in training camp and the preseason, but as the 2021 regular season progressed, Jennings proved to be a player who was capable of stepping up in big moments. At no point was that more evident than the 49ers'



49ers coach Kyle Shanahan, DC DeMeco Ryans assess DBs' COVID situation, Emmanuel Moseley's progress

The 49ers still don't know for sure if COVID-19 will leave their defensive backfield decimated against the Los Angeles Rams this weekend, but they're preparing for every scenario in case it does. And thankfully it sounds like they've got a key reinforcement on the way just when they need him the most. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans dove into the DB situation in depth on Thursday, with Ryans talking about the issue after practice with reporters and Shanahan speaking about it during an appearance on KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger and Brooks Podcast. The defensive backs who are currently on the



49ers status and injury updates: Jimmy Garoppolo, Trent Williams, Dre Greenlaw, Azeez Al-Shaair, Emmanuel Moseley, COVID players

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan provided status updates for a number of players after practice on Friday, including quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo—but he still stopped short of naming him the starter for this weekend's game against the Los Angeles Rams (Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET/1:25 p.m. PT, FOX). Shanahan stuck to his stance of not announcing a starter between Garoppolo and rookie Trey Lance in order to give Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris more to think about, but he was clearly encouraged with what he saw from Garoppolo at practice throughout the week after missing last Sunday's start against the Houston Texans with a thumb injury. "He had a good week—a good week of practice when he was in there. I feel good with where he's at right now," Shanahan

The San Francisco 49ers announced Saturday that safety Jimmie Ward and cornerbacks Dontae Johnson and K'Waun Williams have been activated off the Reserve/COVID-19 list, while cornerback Emmanuel Moseley has been activated from injured reserve after being sidelined with a high ankle sprain. The team also activated two players from the practice squad in linebacker Mark Nzeocha and recently-added cornerback Darqueze Dennard. In addition, linebacker Curtis Robinson was activated from the practice squad as a COVID-19 replacement. The 49ers now have a more complete secondary than they did earlier in the week, when Johnson, Williams, Ward, and cornerbacks Ambry Thomas and Deommodore Lenoir were placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. Thomas was activated on Friday, while
