49ers waive TE Brian Leonhardt

Feb 22, 2016 at 2:26 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers waived TE Brian Leonhardt today. Leonhardt appeared in four games last season and had one reception, a four-yard catch against the Cleveland Browns in December.


Leonhardt, an undrafted free agent out of Bemidji State in 2013, spent time with the Oakland Raiders (2013–2014) and Cleveland Browns (2015) prior to his time with San Francisco. The 49ers signed him to the practice squad in November along with OT Donald Hawkins, who is currently with the Carolina Panthers.

Other tight ends currently on the roster include Garrett Celek, who the 49ers are reportedly trying to re-sign before he hits free agency in March, Vance McDonald, Blake Bell, Rory Anderson, who spent the 2015 season on IR, and Je'Ron Hamm. Both Bell and Anderson were draft selections last year.

Trent Williams calls 49ers his No. 1 destination but is curious about his free agency value

By David Bonilla

Veteran left tackle Trent Williams may be one of the San Francisco 49ers' most important offseason decisions. During last year's draft, the team traded for him as a replacement for the retired Joe Staley. William was to anchor the offensive line. Some questioned whether there would be some rust after the tackle missed all of the 2019 season. Williams finished the season as Pro Football Focus' highest-graded tackle and second-highest-graded offensive lineman. The 49ers cannot use the franchise tag on Williams. That was part of his deal's restructured final year, which was reworked following the trade from Washington to San Francisco. Now, Williams is slated to become a free agent.
