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.

San Francisco 49ers assistant coaches spoke with reporters on Wednesday. That included new quarterbacks coach Brian Griese, who is coming off a broadcast career with ESPN. The task ahead of him: Help mold second-year quarterback Trey Lance and prepare him to guide the 49ers to success. Griese expressed his excitement about returning to coaching. He was asked about last year's No. 3 overall pick and what he has seen from the 22-year-old quarterback.

San Francisco 49ers rookie wideout Danny Gray spoke with the media for the first time since his draft interview, as he prepared for the 49ers' rookie minicamp, which is slated to begin on Friday. Gray, who was selected with the last pick in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 105th overall, is a player with electrifying straight-line speed, which was confirmed with his 4.33 40-yard dash at the combine. However, Gray's talents aren't limited to just his speed; he works well with the ball in his hands and can be physical after the catch, despite his relatively slight 186-pound frame. When addressing his skillset, Gray acknowledged the biggest development over his
