49ers Roster Cuts Open Thread: Brett Swain Reportedly Waived

New, comments

Although the 49ers will not be officially releasing names until later tonight, news is slowly leaking out about players that did not survive the cut. I thought I'd go with a more general open thread rather than have 22 different posts about each cut (as much fun as that might be).

The latest bit of news comes from Adam Caplan, who is reporting that Brett Swain has been waived. He was a long shot to make the roster, given the depth at receiver, but he had enough highlights this preseason to at least remain on the radar. He struggled yesterday and any chance he might have had at making the roster went by the wayside.

He joins Rock Cartwright, who tweeted a "thanks for the opportunity", which was late confirmed by Matt Barrows as being news that he was released. This followed news that the 49ers traded safety Colin Jones to the Carolina Panthers for a reported seventh round pick. Mike Sando mentioned that the Panthers dealt their 2013 seventh round pick for Louis Murphy, so this is likely a 2014 pick.

I'll post updates in here and get new threads up every so often depending on how quickly the new comes out.

Updates already before I even post: Maiocco is reporting Anthony Mosley has been waived, Eric Branch reporting Joe Holland.

I'll post updates after the jump.
