Good morning! The San Francisco 49ers are fully into their final preseason game week, and they have begun the roster cutdown process. We saw multiple moves on Saturday, and Sunday brought cuts of OT Erik Pears and TE Busta Anderson, along with a reported trade of OG Brandon Thomas for WR Jeremy Kerley. On most normal days, that would be more than enough to keep us plenty busy.
This is of course not a normal time for the 49ers. Particularly, it is far from a normal weekend. Colin Kaepernick sat for the National Anthem on Friday, and we’ve been riding that wave ever since. For today’s links, I’ve included the other stuff, but we’ll open with plenty of Kap-related links. I have not included all of them because there are a whole bunch. Drop in any additional links you want to discuss!
