49ers make cuts to trim roster to 53 players

Aug 30, 2014 at 9:11 AM--


According to Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area, the first player released today by the San Francisco 49ers was running back Glenn Winston. They are hoping he will clear waivers so they can place him on the practice squad.

Winston was signed on August 4 as an undrafted free agent and has been impressive during preseason.

One surprise cut was offensive lineman Adam Snyder. The team already lacked depth on the offensive line and Snyder is an experienced veteran.

For the second straight year, special teams standout WR Kassim Osgood didn't make the final cut.

Per multiple sources, the team has waived or released the following players:

RB Glenn Winston
OT Carter Bykowski
LB Shayne Skov
NT Mike Purcell
TE Asante Cleveland
LS Kevin McDermott
S C.J. Spillman
WR Kassim Osgood
OT Michael Philipp
G Al Netter
OT Ryan Seymour
RB Alfonso Smith
OL Adam Snyder
S Bubba Ventrone
DL Lawrence Okoye
CB Darryl Morris
OLB Chase Thomas
WR Lance Lewis
WR L'Damian Washington

Per Matt Maiocco: The 49ers' decision to cut safety C.J. Spillman saves the team $1.225 million on the salary cap.

Per Matt Barrows: WR Kassim Osgood also was cut at this stage last year, brought back after Week 1. Chance that could happen this year, too.

NFL teams must get down to 53 players by 1 PM PT today.

Linebacker Aldon Smith was placed on the reserve/suspended list for the first nine games after being suspended by the league on Friday.

Cornerback Kenneth Acker and fullback Will Tukuafu were placed on injured reserve.

Starting tomorrow, the 49ers can start building their ten player practice squad.

George Kittle feels 49ers have taken a step forward this week, can still make playoffs

While everyone proceeds to write off the San Francisco 49ers following a 43-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins, tight end George Kittle was excited to get back to work this week and prove critics wrong. The team hasn't won a home game this season and has the 4-1 Los Angeles Rams coming into town. Kittle has no shortage of confidence in his teammates and coaching staff. He feels the 49ers could be on the verge of turning things around, and that starts with a good week of practice, which will, hopefully, lead to a winning performance on Sunday night. "We had guys that came in today; I thought we had our best practice of the year today," Kittle told reporters today. "Guys were locked in. Our offense was humming. The O-line looked good. We had a great run period. The

Are they good? Are they bad? Maybe it depends on the week. No one really seems to be sure what to make of the San Francisco 49ers when it comes to power rankings. One week they are being walloped by the Miami Dolphins. The next, they are knocking off the Los Angeles Rams. The 49ers finally earned their first home win of the season by beating the favored Rams 24-16 at Levi's Stadium on Sunday night as many were prepared to write off Kyle Shanahan's squad.

The 49ers received some more bad news on the injury front. Coach Shanahan informed reporters that featured

Kyle Shanahan discusses the possibility of the 49ers trading for roster help

By David Bonilla

As the trade deadline approached last year, the San Francisco 49ers were engaged in trade talks with the Denver Broncos to acquire wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders. The Niners saw him as a player who could help them win a championship, and the team nearly did that but fell just short in Super Bowl LIV. Could general manager John Lynch and the 49ers make a similar move this season? This year's trade deadline is on November 3. "John and his group, they're always looking into all possibilities on that stuff," head coach Kyle Shanahan shared with reporters on Monday. "I mean, they're watching film on the whole league day in and day out. And they're always on the phone and stuff, whether it's John or other guys, some of the scouts, or whoever. They're always having a
