Cut Tracker: 49ers release Nick Moody, Dylan Thompson, others

Sep 5, 2015 at 10:14 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers started yesterday with the release of players like DT Darnell Dockett and G/C Joe Looney. Looney was the final player left on the roster from the 49ers' 2012 draft class.

Earlier today, the 49ers traded a conditional draft pick to the Baltimore Ravens for C Nick Easton, an undrafted free agent out of Harvard.

Today's releases started with G Andrew Tiller and QB Dylan Thompson. Thompson may still have a good chance to make the team as a member of its practice squad.

The NFL will unveil the league's complete 272-game 2022 schedule on Thursday night at 5:00 p.m. PT. It is common for select week-to-week opponent matchups to leak before the official announcement.

On May 4, the NFL revealed that the 49ers will travel to Mexico City on November 21 to face the Arizona Cardinals at Estadio Azteca—a Week 11 primetime matchup on ESPN's Monday Night Football.

The San Francisco 49ers' rookie minicamp kicked off Friday afternoon, with the 49ers revealing the rookie jersey numbers prior to media availability.

Zakelj is a Cleveland native, drawing a connection to Alex Mack, whom the rookie watched while growing up. Mack began his career as a member of the Cleveland Browns, playing from 2009-2015 before stints with the Falcons and the 49ers.

Drake Jackson knows he's going into a great situation. Two weeks ago, the 21-year-old rookie defensive end was the first selection by the San Francisco 49ers, added during the second round.

Jackson could develop into that complementary piece for the 49ers defense. Luckily, he has a great role model in Bosa. "Watching him, the whole D-line, watching them hunt, I cannot wait to go get out there with those guys and just turn up with them," Jackson told reporters on Friday. After Jackson was drafted, Bosa was among several
