49ers release WR Brandon Jones

And just like that Ninjames last post is quickly outdated. The 49ers announced they have released WR Brandon Jones and waived/injured OT Chris Patrick (hopefully to get him on the IR).

Jones signed a fairly sizable deal last offseason and after getting hurt in training camp he never lived up to the deal. Jones had turned into a long shot to make the roster, so I'm guessing they made this move so he would have a chance elsewhere. More importantly, once he had gotten healthy it frees up practice and preseason game snaps for the other receivers.
