Australia, rejoice! Jarryd Hayne makes 49ers’ 53-man roster

Sep 5, 2015 at 1:25 PM--


While there is little surprise that Jarryd Hayne would make the San Francisco 49ers roster, the remote possibility of him being cut today had much of Australia on the edges of their seats ... and very early in the morning for them.

Aussie fans have adopted the 49ers as their team because of the former NRL superstar who left for the United States to chase his dream of playing in the NFL.

Hayne himself made the announcement official on Twitter.


The 49ers roster final roster cuts were submitted to the league today and Hayne was not one of the players on the list. Of course, even the final 53 are not assured a place on the team when the 49ers play their first game against the Minnesota Vikings on September 14. However, Hayne, who has shown impressive raw skill as a return man on special teams and even some explosive play at running back, is likely to remain no matter what.

Hayne averaged an impressive 7 yards-per-run on 25 carries during preseason. He was equally impressive returning the ball on special teams.

Hayne is officially a player in the NFL and of the San Francisco 49ers. Here's to a great season mate.

Other players that announced that they had made the team were DeAndrew White, Nick Bellore, and Mike Purcell.




As the clock ticked down, even Jarryd Hayne was on the edge of his seat. Of course, by this point, the fact that he had not heard anything about his status was a good indication that he had made the team.

49ers insider identifies NFL team that makes the most sense for Jimmy Garoppolo

By David Bonilla

Jimmy Garoppolo will be a quarterback on some NFL roster during the 2022 season. However, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area doesn't believe it will be with the San Francisco 49ers. The Niners attempted to trade Garoppolo in March, but all discussions halted when the quarterback surprised the team and opted to undergo shoulder surgery. That delayed things, which reduced the 49ers' options. As Garoppolo recovered, the list of quarterback-needy teams shrunk. 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan have tried to convince everyone that they are willing, if necessary, to hold onto Garoppolo in 2022 if a suitable offer doesn't present itself. That certainly isn't Plan A, though. Instead, once the quarterback is healthy, they hope to try to



NFL.com identifies 49ers' biggest roster hole heading into training camp

NFL.com writer Kevin Patra took a look around the league and ranked the 10 biggest remaining roster holes heading into training camp. Some teams appear set for the 2022 season. Others still have work to do, finding solutions to bolster potential weaknesses. Patra looked at each team's biggest weakness and ranked it against other teams' biggest weaknesses. The San Francisco 49ers came in at No. 2, with the center position being identified as the Bay Area team's biggest weakness. Assuming right tackle Mike McGlinchey returns healthy, the 49ers appear set (as far as knowing who the starters will be) along the edges of the offensive line.



49ers roster ranked 13th in the NFL by Pro Football Focus

Are their 12 teams in the NFL with better rosters than the San Francisco 49ers? It doesn't seem like there would be, given the team's talent and postseason success in 2022. But in their recent roster rankings for 2022, Pro Football Focus has the 49ers ranked 13th in the league, behind most of last season's playoff field and even a few teams that didn't make the postseason. Much has happened in terms of player movement since Super Bowl LVI, which has shuffled PFF's rankings to look quite a bit different than they might have at the end of last year. The 49ers are the lowest-rated of last season's final four playoff teams,



George Kittle wishes the 49ers didn't delay Deebo Samuel extension

By David Bonilla

Earlier this week, Bleacher Report listed what it believes is the one offseason regret for each NFL team. For the San Francisco 49ers, it was the team not locking wide receiver Deebo Samuel to a contract extension earlier—before the receiver market exploded earlier in the offseason and Samuel requested to be traded. One 49ers star wishes his team had taken care of Samuel earlier, avoiding the offseason drama altogether. Samuel reported to the team's mandatory minicamp earlier this month but didn't participate in the on-field work. "Hindsight is 20-20, right?" tight end George Kittle said this week on the
