49ers waive/injured WR Richie James, re-sign WR River Cracraft

Aug 28, 2021 at 1:44 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have re-signed wide receiver River Cracraft to a one-year deal. He was part of this past week's roster cutdown. To make room on the roster, the team has waived/injured wide receiver Richie James.

The likely hope is that James goes unclaimed, clears waivers, and reverts back to the 49ers. After that, he will automatically land on injured reserve.

The 49ers Communications staff provided the following rundown.



Cracraft (6-0, 198) signed a one-year extension with the 49ers on February 22, 2021. He was later waived on August 24, 2021.

James (5-9, 185) appeared in 40 games (10 starts) and registered 38 receptions for 689 yards and three touchdowns after the team drafted him in the seventh round (240th overall) of the 2018 NFL Draft. He also added 51 punt returns for 373 yards and 47 kickoff returns for 1,081 yards and one touchdown on special teams.

The 49ers announced Friday afternoon they have activated rookie cornerback Ambry Thomas from the Reserve/COVID-19 list while also waiving tight end Tanner Hudson.

His clearance from the list is welcome news, considering how thin the 49ers were at the cornerback position heading into Friday. 49ers general manager John Lynch expressed optimism Friday morning that the team would get at least some of those players back before Sunday's season finale in Los Angeles against the Rams. Thomas is the first of those players to return to the active
