After releasing Erik Magnuson on Thursday, the San Francisco 49ers are signing offensive lineman Dillion Day. Looking at the transaction wire for Day, he was on and off the Broncos roster from 2015-2017. In October of 2017, he signed with Indianapolis Colts. After being activated and waived a couple of times, he was finally released in November of 2017. The very next day, the Denver Broncos added Day to their practice squad. On December 20, 2017, the Green Bay Packers signed Day. He was waived before the start of the 2018 season.

Day is likely a camp body, as Weston Richburg will start training camp on the PUP list. Ben Garland will resume center duties until Richburg returns, leaving Day, and Wesley Johnson as centers on the roster. Mike Person has experience at center, too.

We’ll likely see a lot of roster shuffling in the coming weeks, especially as veterans and surprise names are released.
