The San Francisco 49ers are through the preseason, which means it is time to cut down from 75 players to 53 players. The team made their first round of cuts to 75 earlier this week a day in advance of the deadline, so we'll want to keep an eye out on Friday for potential early cuts. If the team is going to unload some veterans, they might decide to cut them early to get them a shot elsewhere.
Fooch's note: Site decorum is off for roster cuts
I think we can mostly agree on likely roster cuts. There will be some that surprise us, and the 49ers might try and make a trade to clear some space. However, in looking at the roster below, a majority of the 22 roster moves on Friday and Saturday should not be particularly shocking.
As the 49ers prepare for these cuts, I have posted the full roster below, including previous cuts. Below that is the 49ers media Twitter list to track updates as they come in. I'll drop in updates in the post as well. Maybe we see some trades, maybe we see some surprising releases. Whatever happens, we'll be here tracking it. I am going to leave this pinned at the top of the site, so if you see any rumors, drop them in. For example, Aaron Wilson has a lot of good sources and reports on transactions. He is not in the 49ers media Twitter list, so if you see something from him, drop it in here.
