49ers cut Pierre Thomas to make room for Travaris Cadet

Nov 10, 2015 at 8:54 AM--


According to multiple sources, the San Francisco 49ers have cut RB Pierre Thomas in order to make room for RB Travaris Cadet, who was signed by the team today.

Thomas had just joined the team one week ago, signing with the 49ers on November 3. He played on Sunday during the 49ers' 17-16 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. He had four carries for 12 yards. However, it was the RB Shaun Draughn, who was signed the day before Thomas, that received the majority of the carries against the Falcons. Draughn had 58 yards on 16 carries and another 38 yards on four receptions.


Thomas, who is 30, had played the last eight seasons with the New Orleans Saints. He visited with the 49ers three weeks ago following news that RB Carlos Hyde had a stress fracture in his foot.

Thomas has 3,757 rushing yards and 28 touchdowns on 822 carries over his NFL career. He also has 2,608 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns on 327 receptions. He played college football at Illinois and was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Saints in 2007.

The 49ers already have a slew of established veteran standouts on defense, with players such as Nick Bosa, Fred Warner, Jason Verrett, Jimmie Ward, and Arik Armstead leading what should be a talented mix. But there may be three more players ready to join that group this season, according to defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans. Ryans was asked during a media session on Wednesday which players he feels are in a position to make a big leap once the season gets underway. The first player he singled out was defensive tackle Kevin Givens, who has shown some flashes in a reserve role since joining the 49ers as an undrafted rookie out of Penn State in 2019. Givens had 19 tackles and a sack in 13 games last season after playing in just one game as a rookie. "I look at a

The 49ers are mostly set when it comes to how their 90-man roster will look when training camp gets underway in July, but there's at least one unsigned player who looms large as a possible addition the team could make before the players return to Santa Clara. That player of course is cornerback Richard Sherman, who has yet to find a team after playing with the 49ers the past three seasons. Whether the 49ers and Sherman decide to reunite for another go-round remains to be seen. But NFL.com columnist Jeffri Chadia thinks continuing the relationship would make sense for both sides as he listed the 49ers re-signing Sherman as one of five big moves NFL teams should make in the coming months. "As of right now, the best fit for Sherman remains the 49ers,"
