How the 49ers acquired the players on their 90-man roster

New, comments

We break down the full list of transactions that make up the San Francisco 49ers 90-man roster heading into training camp.

Training camp gets started later this week week, and there are a whole lot of players on the San Francisco 49ers’ roster. We’ve gone through the roster in our 90-in-90 series, but I thought it would be helpful to drop in how the full roster came together. And so, we’ve got two lists. The first list is how players were acquired, be they draft picks, veteran free agents, CFL signings, UDFAs, waivers, or trades. The second list splits up the acquisitions by year so you can see when players have been added to the roster.

The link for each player is their 90-in-90 post. We’re obviously still finishing up some of them, so I’ll add those as we move along.
