Full list of 49ers 2017 transactions

New, comments

The 49ers were plenty busy in 2017, and it should carry over into 2018.

Arizona Cardinals v San Francisco 49ers

The NFL calendar never truly completely ends for a team’s brain trust, even when the regular season or playoffs come to an end. There will be some vacation to unwind, but as we saw last week, reserve/future contracts kick things off shortly after the season ends.

That being said, December 31st brought the end of the 2017 calendar, and also the end of the San Francisco 49ers season. We are going to start looking at all their transactions from last season, but to get to that, I thought I’d put together a full list of those transactions.

This list comes courtesy of the 49ers weekly game release, which tracks every transaction for the season. I’ve split it up by month, so you can follow the story of the 49ers roster. We’ll be back tomorrow and into the next few weeks with a look at the many notable players added over the course of 2017.
