49ers re-sign Noble Nwachukwu to practice squad, release Jeremy Liggins

New, comments

The 49ers have re-signed a player to their practice squad, releasing the player they originally released the first player for. I think that sentence makes sense.

The San Francisco 49ers have re-signed defensive end Noble Nwachukwu to their practice squad and have released defensive lineman Jeremy Liggins, the team announced on Monday.

This move is the inverse of the same move they made on Oct. 11, when they released Nwachukwu and signed Liggins. As we all know, the 49ers as an organization aren’t happy unless they’re constantly shuffling practice squad players and the 53rd man on the roster.

Liggins was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Seattle Seahawks earlier this year, and was waived around the time of roster cuts. He played at Ole Miss for three seasons, appearing in 28 games as a tight end, quarterback and offensive lineman.

Nwachukwu is also a rookie who was signed as an undrafted free agent by the 49ers in May. He was released at the same time the Seahawks cut Liggins, then signed to the team’s practice squad. He remained there until his release earlier in October, and now he’s back again.

Just some housekeeping moves, it seems.
