49ers DT Kaleb Ramsey retires after two seasons

Jul 28, 2016 at 10:35 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers announced Thursday that DT Kaleb Ramsey will be retiring from the NFL.


Ramsey was a seventh-round selection by the 49ers out of Boston College in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Ramsey started his 49ers career on the physically unable to perform list during his first season with the team. He was released prior to the start of the 2015 season and then re-signed to the practice squad for that season. In January, he signed a future contact with the 49ers. He has never played in an NFL game.

In November, Ramsey was suspended four games for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing substances. He had numerous injuries throughout his college career and even missed the NFL Combine and his school's Pro Day with a calf injury.

"The 49ers organization would like to thank Kaleb for his contributions to our team and our community over the last two years," said general manager Trent Baalke. "We will continue to support Kaleb and wish him well as he moves on from his career in football."

"I want to thank Jed York, the York family, Trent Baalke and all the coaches and staff I have had the pleasure of working with over the last two years," said Ramsey in a statement. "The 49ers took a chance on drafting me and made my NFL dreams come true. Unfortunately, my career has been cut short, as I have made the decision to step away from the game to concentrate on other priorities in my life. During my time in the Bay Area, I have seen how special the 49ers organization and its fans truly are, and that is something I will take with me as I move on."

Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area pointed out that Ramsey's retirement creates a roster spot for OT Anthony Davis, who has filed for reinstatement into the NFL.

The 49ers report to training camp on Saturday with their first practice taking place on Sunday.

10 quarterbacks earn more than 49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo after Patrick Mahomes' record deal

Does anyone remember way back to when Jimmy Garoppolo became the NFL's highest-paid quarterback? Yes, you have to look all the way back to 2018 — you know, two years and some change — to when the San Francisco 49ers quarterback inked a then-record five-year deal with up to $137.5 million. What a bargain. That's not what some thought when the deal was signed. At the time, it seemed like a lot of money for a player who had started just seven games. Of course, he had won each of them. Since then, 10 quarterbacks have leaped past Garoppolo when it comes to an average annual salary. The most recent is the reigning Super Bowl MVP, Kansas City Chiefs

Raheem Mostert requests a trade after months of 'unproductive talks'

San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert has requested a trade, according to a tweet by his agent, Brett Tessler. The agent noted the months of unproductive contract talks with the team as the basis for the request. Tessler expressed disappointment in the situation and for his client, who led all NFL running backs in yards-per-carry (5.6) last season and helped the 49ers reach Super Bowl LIV. After months of unproductive talks with the 49ers about fairly adjusting Raheem Mostert's contract (which paid him for special teams) we have requested a trade. Disappointing that it would come to this for a guy who

PFF names 49ers' running back battle as one to watch after Raheem Mostert requests trade

By David Bonilla

It's entirely likely that the San Francisco 49ers don't grant Raheem Mostert's trade request, and the running back ends up leading the team's ferocious rushing attack this season. He was a breakout surprise last year — and really, in the playoffs — and has earned an increased workload going forward. Mostert's $2.575 million base salary for 2020 is second to Tevin Coleman's $4.55 million among the Niners' backs, if you don't count fullback Kyle Juszczyk, of course. The team also has Jerick McKinnon, who head coach Kyle Shanahan was high on after signing him in 2018. Injury has knocked him out of each of the last two seasons, though, so no one really knows yet what the 49ers have there. Ben Linsey of Pro Football Focus
