San Francisco 49ers roster tracker 2017: Free agency signings, draft picks, trades & more

The 2017 San Francisco 49ers have a new coaching staff and front office in place. This makes for an especially critical offseason, with plenty of roster turnover expected. Here is a rundown of every 49ers transaction of the offseason.

The San Francisco 49ers made a big splash this offseason in hiring Kyle Shanahan as their next head coach, and John Lynch as their next general manager. The Shanahan hiring was not a surprise, while the Lynch hiring was out of left field. Since then, Lynch has brought in some experienced football minds, and by all accounts things are off to a solid start for the new 49ers brain trust.

Free agency gets going on March 9, but the 49ers were active in advance. They signed DT Earl Mitchell, CB K’Waun Williams, and WR DeAndre Carter, all of whom were released at some point over the past six months. Additionally, they signed wide receiver Jeremy Kerley to a three-year contract extension. And like every other team, they signed some practice squad players to reserve/future contracts.

We’ll be covering all the offseason transactions that build the final roster, but this will serve as a clearinghouse for all of the transactions. We’ll link to all of them, and it will be pinned to the front page. Feel free to bookmark this if you want, as it will serve as a catch-up if you miss something along the way. I’ll updated it with each transaction, and include an updated time stamp.
