49ers Roster: Nathan Palmer Cut, According To Reports

Fooch's Update: Eric Branch is reporting OL Al Netter has been cut. He has practice squad eligibility.

Fooch's Update: Matt Barrows and Kyle Bonagura are reporting the 49ers cut Nathan Palmer. I would imagine he and Owusu are likely competing for one practice squad spot.

Fooch's Update: Matt Barrows is reporting the 49ers cut Michael Thomas and plan to sign him to the practice squad if he clears waivers.

One of the more drawn out questions appears to have been answered. Matt Maiocco Barrows and Eric Branch both just tweeted out that a league source has indicated that Scott Tolzien will make the 49ers 53-man roster. He has been battling Josh Johnson this offseason. There is no word yet on whether Johnson made the roster as well, although four quarterbacks would seem to be a bit of a stretch.

It is worth noting that making the 53-man roster now does not guarantee some players a spot by the time the season starts. I would be surprised to see the 49ers keep one of the two QBs and then release him in the coming weeks, but it is still worth noting.

The 49ers third QB will likely be inactive every week, barring an injury to either Alex Smith or Colin Kaepernick. Although Josh Johnson put together a dominant performance last night, the developmental role of the third QB seems more fitting for the younger, more inexperienced Tolzien.
