The NFL ran their waivers process at 9am PT today, which means anybody with practice squad eligibility that is not claimed can start signing to practice squads. The 49ers are allowed to sign up to eight players to the squad, but do not necessarily have to sign them right away. Given that there will be some waiver moves processing, they can wait to see who clears waivers tomorrow.
In the meantime, the first potential signing is out as agent David Canter tweeted that LB MIchael Wilhoite will sign with the 49ers practice squad this afternoon. Canter announced his release yesterday and indicated the 49ers wanted to sign him to the practice squad if he cleared waivers. It appears he has indeed cleared waivers.
I'll provide updates in here throughout the morning and afternoon as moves leak out. Eventually the 49ers will send out a press release with names, but that will likely take a while to happen. In the meantime, if you are catching college football, I've posted an open thread with a rundown of games where some 49ers scouts are planning to attend.
