49ers sign TE Jamie Childers to practice squad, release LB Kevin Snyder

Dec 1, 2015 at 3:56 PM--


There were a couple of small transactions today. The San Francisco 49ers signed TE Jamie Childers to the practice squad. The team also released LB Kevin Snyder (Rutgers), who was signed to the practice squad on November 24. Snyder had joined the practice squad on the same day the team brought in QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson.

DL Kaleb Ramsey has been reinstated to the practice squad after serving a four game suspension for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing substances.


Childers' signing comes after an injury to TE Garrett Celek in Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Celek, who was carted off the field at Levi's Stadium, suffered an ankle injury and had an MRI on Monday.

Childers entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the St. Louis Rams in 2012 before being released prior to the regular season. He then joined the New York Giants at the start of the 2013 offseason and was released prior to the start of the regular season. Since then, he has spent time with the Buffalo Bills and Carolina Panthers. The Panthers placed Childers on the Injured Reserve List in August and then released.

Snyder signed with the Detroit Lions as an undrafted free agent in May of 2015. He was placed on the Injured Reserve List on August 25 and later waived by Detroit on October 13.

The San Francisco 49ers announced that they have signed tight end Troy Fumagalli to a one-year deal. To make room on the roster, the team waived tight end Garrett Walston. Fumagalli was among the tryout players at the 49ers' rookie minicamp. Something noteworthy: The tight end's left index finger was amputated due to a condition known as amniotic band syndrome. "It happened at birth, so I don't know any better," Fumagalli told ESPN in 2016 (h/t Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle). "If you were to ask me if I imagined a finger on my left hand, I feel like that's in the way of things. I wouldn't want it

49ers rookie Danny Gray did this after dropping a deep pass during practice

Like many NFL players, rookie wide receiver Danny Gray strives for perfection. Unfortunately, no one can be perfect. For a quarterback, it's easy to dwell on that off-target throw. Maybe it's that football that slipped out of your grip for a running back. For a cornerback, that near-interception that bounced off your eager hands. For a wide receiver, it's that big-play throw that you couldn't haul in. That's what happened to Gray on Friday afternoon during the San Francisco 49ers' first practice of a three-day rookie minicamp. While others might try to push the slip-up out of their minds and focus on the next rep. Not Gray. According to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle, the rookie wideout fell to the ground and paid penance with 10
