Most significant cut in recent memory that went on to play well is DJ Reed, now with the Jets.

Dante Pettis did score that long TD against us last year

DJ Reed is a legit NFL cornerback. Can't have enough of those.

Really sucks to lose Jamison and Manning. Especially Jamison who might actually be better than Oliver and Ambry and considering the secondary is young and needs depth badly, would probably end up contributing a lot.

Still don't understand the decision to try to sneak Jamison by waivers after everyone talked him up and after he's shwon great tape.

Jamison wasn't really all that good on the field. Showed promise but lack of size hurt him.

Jamison wasn't secured with the ball, so he is not a good option as a punt returner. We can use him at kickoff return. He is also a project at the CB position. I don't think he would have been active on game day just to return kickoffs unless both McCloud and Bell are not available.

Looked way better than Oliver to me

I feel like the beat writers hyped him up too much tbh

he looked like a good returner but was meh in coverage skills and muffed a punt

Oliver was not quite what I expected, however, he is 3" taller and almost 20 pounds heavier than Jamison. With the blitzing and run support that Wilks looks for in a slot nickel, Jamison just wasn't a very good fit.

Weaker teams are always looking at the good teams' cuts in hopes of improving their own team.

That's what Bill Walsh did in 1979. It's how the team grabbed Dwaine "Tiny" Board from the Steelers, who chose to keep Mean Joe Green. The Steelers had a choice. Keep the big star, or develop the kid. They chose Mean Joe. Walsh grabbed the young talent. BOOM!

source ?

How is he "hyped him up too much" by beat writers, when I've seen with my own eyes how well he plays ? Plus he's got a shoutout from Aiyuk he didn't have to do, a public one at that. Any other corner got a shout out by arguably the best WR on the team ?

And my source that says he was meh in coverage is that they waived him.

You right, he was a blanket out there which is why they chose to waive him

So by that logic, DJ Reed also has "meh coverage skills" ? Got it.

Zakelj isn't exactly old though. Joe Green was 33 when 49ers poached Dwaine from the Steelers. It took Dwaine about 5 years to get to his full potential, so assuming that timeline - Manning/Jaimison would be good in 2028? We have 11 draft picks next year and some good draft picks from previous years seem to be developing (Moore, McKivitz, Zakelj). None of the three cuts would have been able to help this season anyway, for what it's worth. In the meantime those 11 draft picks (plus the added possibility of losing Anthony Lynn to our annual coaching raids) will add even more compensatory draft picks in the future. Brock Purdy was a compensatory draft pick, if I recall correctly.
