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.

NFL exec wonders if this Garoppolo-to-Browns trade makes sense for the 49ers

The Cleveland Browns have lost two consecutive games. Their quarterback, Baker Mayfield, is ailing. He had his arm in a sling after the Browns' 37-14 loss to the Arizona Cardinals this past weekend and said this of his shoulder: "It feels like s--t." Mayfield suffered a partially torn labrum in Week 2. He landed hard on that same shoulder on Sunday following a sack by Cardinals defender J.J. Watt. With the November 2 trade deadline approaching, San Francisco 49ers fans should brace themselves for a lot of Jimmy Garoppolo chatter now that the No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance, has a start under his belt. The team has expressed a preference to ride out the season with the more experienced Garoppolo at the helm. Does that change depending on how these next two games

Sunday night will be a reunion for many San Francisco 49ers players. All-Pro defensive tackle DeForest Buckner will return to Levi's Stadium for the first time since being traded to the Indianapolis Colts in 2020. "He was the heart and soul when he was here, man," safety Jimmie Ward said of Buckner after today's practice. "I wasn't happy about [the trade], but I understand the business side. I'm pretty sure you all knew something was going to happen, just like I did. I just didn't know what was going to happen. "When that happened, like I said, it was bittersweet. We ended up getting [Javon] Kinlaw, and we ended up getting Brandon Aiyuk. But we lost a leader, especially a leader on the defense. Really, a leader on this team, in this building. But he's
