49ers Roster Cuts: Chris Owusu Latest Cut News

The reports continue to flow in as the 49ers have reportedly released tight end Konrad Reuland and LBs Eric Bakhtiari and Michael Wilhoite. Matt Barrows reported the Bakhtiari move, agent David Canter the Wilhoite move and Matt Maiocco with the reuland move. Reuland was in a battle for the third tight end role, and seemed to have gained a leg up with Demarcus Dobbs' leg injury. Apparently that was not the case. Reuland does have practice squad eligibility, so if he clears waivers, the 49ers could approach him about joining the squad.

He put together a big receiving night last night, but his release might mean the team did not think his blocking was coming along quite like they hoped. This news came before anything regarding Garrett Celek or Kyle Nelson. That does not necessarily mean they are suddenly more likely to have made the roster since it really comes down to which players and their agents leak out the information.

According to Canter, Wilhoite was told that if he clears waivers, the 49ers would want to sign him to their practice squad. Bakhtiari was released for what Eric Branch says is the ninth time in his career since 2008. Hopefully he finds a place to land. He showed some good things in camp, but obviously it wasn't quite enough. It will be interesting to see if Ikaika Alama-Francis, Cam Johnson or Kenny Rowe benefit from this decision.

After the jump I've posted the current transactions, as well as the last depth chart reflecting cuts and trades.
