Well then, that was pretty quick. The 49ers just announced that they've released 5 players to meet the 75-man roster requirement:
WR Mark Bradford
WR Chris Francies
K Alex Romero
CB Carlos Thomas
CB Jahi Word-Daniels
None of these roster moves is really all that surprising given our earlier discussion of the topic.
The 49ers next deadline is to cut down to 53 players by September 5. The 49ers final preseason game is the night before so they'll get one last chance to see what they've got from folks before making their decision. I'll have a new 53-man roster projection fairly early in the week.
