The roster moves get the 49ers down to the required 75-player limit, which all teams needed to meet by Tuesday at 1 PM PT.

The 49ers had already released the following players:

TE Busta Anderson
WR DiAndre Campbell
RB Kendall Gaskins
DT Darren Lake
K John Lunsford
LB Wynton McManis
OG Blake Muir
OT Erik Pears
OG Ian Silberman
WR Jerome Simpson
CB Cleveland Wallace

WR Eric Rogers was placed on injured reserve this past weekend and CB Kenneth Acker was traded to the Kansas City Chiefs for a seventh-round draft pick in 2018.

The 49ers also traded OG Brandon Thomas to the Detroit Lions for WR Jeremy Kerley, but that move obviously did not subtract from the team's roster total.

Cornerback Deommodore Lenoir may end up being one of the best value picks from the San Francisco 49ers' most recent draft class. He was a fifth-round draft pick, and the Niners tend to find gold in that round. Linebacker Dre Greenlaw was a fifth-round draft pick in 2019. D.J. Reed may not be on the team anymore but is proving to be a good player for the Seattle Seahawks. He was a 49ers fifth-round pick in 2018. In 2017, San Francisco drafted some little-known tight end out of Iowa named George Kittle. He's not bad either. Could Lenoir be the team's next fifth-round gem? The rookie's teammate, safety Jimmie Ward, joined 95.7 The Game on Wednesday. The discussion eventually led to Lenoir and the young defensive back's early dividends. The
