NFL roster cuts tracker: 49ers begin cut to 53 players

New, comments

Rumors are coming in about roster cuts. We break down where they stand.

Fooch's update: Here are all cuts and trades, and the 49ers 53-man roster

The San Francisco 49ers have reportedly begun making roster cuts. Eric Branch tweeted that the team has cut wide receiver Devon Cajuste. The team will formally announce roster cuts later this afternoon. The 49ers were at 75 players entering the day, and head coach Chip Kelly said on Thursday evening that they would wait to make cuts on Saturday after breaking down film.

Cajuste signed as an undrafted free agent. He brings intriguing speed and size, but it would appear the team thinks he needs more development time. They have a lot of questions at wide receiver, but his roster chances were tough throughout the year. He had one catch in the preseason, and while he got a lot of playing time (80 offensive snaps), it was not enough.

The team can sign players to their practice squad starting on Sunday, and if Cajuste clears waivers, I could see him being one of the ten players.
