Welcome to the final day of cuts! The San Francisco 49ers have until 1:00 PM today (Saturday) to cut down from 90 to 53 players. As of Friday, the 49ers had cut or traded 14 different players (and added Shon Coleman by trade). They have 24 left to go to get to the 53.

This is where things get difficult. A lot of the easy ones like Joe Williams were made on Friday, but some other potentially more difficult choices, like the release of Aldrick Robinson, came as well. That’s not the last wide receiver cut as the decisions to that position might be the most difficult for the team. Expect more of the latter to happen today as the team gets down to the 53.

It used to be a cut from 90 to 75 players by Tuesday, then 75 to 53 by Saturday, but the league changed that policy. This means potentially over 1,100 players will hit the market this weekend. Teams will claim some of them, and another 320 will eventually end up on practice squads. You can find more cuts from other teams around the NFL at SB Nation.

After roster cuts, vested veterans immediately hit the market, while players with less than four accrued seasons will go through the waivers process on Sunday at 9 a.m. PT. Roster cuts are never really “final” roster cuts since a team might see someone worth claiming off waivers or signing as a free agent. Additionally, if the 49ers have players they want to move to injured reserve with the option of bringing them back this season, those moves will likely happen on Sunday. Finally, they will sign a 10-man practice squad starting Sunday at 10 a.m., as well as scouring the NFL waiver wire as other players are released over the weekend.
