The San Francisco 49ers' 10-player practice squad is now complete. NFL teams were allowed to officially signing players to their practice squads starting at 10 a.m. PT. This is following the 9 a.m. PT deadline to claim a player off of waivers.

Below is a list of players that the 49ers have reportedly signed or will sign.

WR Dres Anderson
Anderson was signed by the 49ers as an undrafted free agent in 2015.

OL Alex Balducci
Originally a nose tackle at Oregon, Balducci was converted to an offensive lineman after being signed as an undrafted free agent by the 49ers.

OL Fahn Cooper
A fifth-round draft pick by the 49ers in the 2016 NFL Draft. Cooper was waived by the team on Saturday.

TE Je'Ron Hamm
Hamm was claimed off waivers by the 49ers in December.

WR Chris Harper
Harper (5-11, 185) was waived by the Patriots on Saturday. He had spend most of the 2015 season (his first in the NFL) on New England's practice squad. While his signing with the 49ers was widely reported, it is not officially known if he is joining the active roster or practice squad. If the practice squad, he will be the only member that was not with the 49ers this offseason.


CB Prince Charles Iworah
A seventh-round draft pick by the 49ers in the 2016 NFL Draft.

OT Norman Price
Offensive lineman signed as an undrafted free agent following the 2016 draft.

LB Marcus Rush
Rush led the league in sacks during preseason and looked like a solid pass rusher. However, his run support looked like it needed to develop.

LB Shayne Skov
Skov appeared in 15 games with the 49ers in 2015. He has spent time on the 49ers and Buccaneers' rosters and practice squads since going undrafted out of Stanford in 2014.

RB Kelvin Taylor
The sixth-round draft pick by the 49ers in May and son of great RB Fred Taylor.

A maximum of four players can have two years of NFL experience. A player is credited with a year of experience after spending six games on the active roster. No player can spend more than three seasons on NFL practice squads.

Players on a practice squad can be claimed by any NFL team, but must be placed on that team's active 53-player roster. The 49ers spent Saturday trimming their roster down to the 53-player limit.

Below is a list of key 49ers that were waived on Saturday and claimed by other teams on Sunday.

WR Devon Cajuste (Packers)
QB Jeff Driskel (Bengals)
OLB Corey Lemonier (Browns)
DL Garrison Smith (Seahawks)
WR Bryce Treggs (Eagles)

Treggs was originally reported as signing with the 49ers, but got claimed by the Eagles.


Key remaining deadlines and dates are listed below.

Sunday, September 4
NFL clubs may begin establishing a practice squad of 10 eliglbe players starting at 10 a.m. PT.

Thursday, September 8
Top 51 rule for all NFL clubs, a rule that states only the top 51 contracts on a team count toward the salary cap, expires at 9 a.m. PT. Of course, this is not as important to teams like the 49ers, who have a big surplus in cap space.

Monday, September 12
Los Angeles Rams at San Francisco 49ers, regular-season opener, Levi's Stadium, 7:20 p.m. PT.

It's a fun time of the year, as the team prepares to make another run for a sixth Super Bowl championship. We opened up the 49ers mailbag and had plenty of questions to choose from.

Trey Lance didn't exactly have a great stat line during Thursday's training camp session for the San Francisco 49ers, but head coach Kyle Shanahan says Lance was correct when he said Thursday's practice was better than Wednesday's despite multiple interceptions by the team's quarterbacks. Lance threw one of those interceptions and completed seven of 15 passes throughout the practice, while backups Nate Sudfeld and Brock Purdy threw three combined picks, according to 49ers beat reporter Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.
