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.

How did the 49ers work through that schedule? We'll look at that in this version of 49ers Notebook, along with some postgame thoughts from head coach Kyle Shanahan on the running back situation, a look at an impressive streak the 49ers snapped on Sunday, and much more.

The 49ers' Defense is Becoming Elite Again: 5 Observations about Saints-49ers

This 2022 iteration of the 49ers is endlessly fascinating to watch. One of the best teams in football one week, getting humiliated the next. Back to the future, forward with the past. But as turbulent and ramshackle as it's been, the 49ers are morphing into a team ready to dominate in the playoffs, just as head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have always believed. Here are 5 observations from yesterday's win over the Saints. 1. The Scoreless Streak Extends to 4… In the second half of the past 4 games, the 49ers haven't allowed a point. None. Zip. Zilch. Nada. The Rams, Chargers, Cardinals, and now Saints have all failed to crack the scoreboard once after halftime. While only this last contest has been a pure shutout, that mark remains
