49ers release 13 players to make room for UDFAs

This was going to happen at some point with 15 unofficial undrafted free agents signed

The San Francisco 49ers announced several roster moves to make room for the 15 unofficial undrafted free agents they signed following the conclusion of the NFL draft. Even if you’re not very good at math, it was obvious that they had signed over their allotment of 90 by the end of the weekend. Here’s a list of the players released:

  • OL Alex Balducci
  • S Marcus Ball
  • LB Carl Bradford
  • LB Jayson DiManche
  • TE Je’ron Hamm
  • WR Chris Harper
  • LB Wynton McManis
  • P Brock Miller
  • DL Zach Moore
  • NT Mike Purcell
  • WR Eric Rogers
  • CB JaCorey Shepherd
  • LB Shayne Skov

In addition to the UDFA signings, the 49ers signed center Tim Barnes and offensive lineman Brandon Fusco to one year deals. Barnes was originally drafted by the Ravens but has spent the majority of his time with the Rams. In five seasons, Barnes started 36 games of the 77 he appeared in, 32 of those starts playing at center. Fusco has spent his entire NFL career with the Vikings starting 64 of his 67 games played as well as two post season games.
