Fooch's Note: Xavier Omon is added to the group below as he makes seven on the 49ers practice squad. That leaves one more spot.
Things have quieted down a bit since the hubbub of the Scott Tolzien waiver claim (we really are a sad lot, aren't we?). The 49ers are slowly working to acquire their 2011 practice squad as they sign a variety of players they cut yesterday. For now they would appear to have the following players joining the practice squad:
The team had reportedly signed McLeod Bethel-Thompson to the practice squad but then released him an hour or so later. I'd imagine he was signed to the squad in case they did not win their claim on Tolzien and when they won they claim they decided to release McBLT. No other significant explanation for it.
The 49ers have not officially announced their practice squad signings, but if these six are unofficially official, that leaves two spots on the team. The team released Keaton Kristick to make room for Tolzien on the 53-man roster and Kristick still has PS eligibility. All the 49ers rookies are eligible for the squad as well as FB Jack Corcoran, LB Alex Joseph, OG Nick Howell, WR Kevin Jurovich, S Chris Maragos, RB Xavier Omon, and S Curtis Taylor. I haven't seen any indications they have signed elsewhere yet.
