The 49ers were over the 90-man roster limit heading into Thursday. But the team announced they released wide receiver Tyron Johnson, who was one of 13 wide receivers on the roster.
The 27-year-old was signed by the Houston Texans as an undrafted free agent after the 2019 NFL Draft. Since then, Johnson has bounced around to seven different teams, including three separate stints with the Texans.
Here’s how the wideout room looks as of today:
Rookie third round pick Jake Moody agreed to terns with the 49ers Wednesday. His four-year contract is worth $5.3 million, including $858,000 at the time of signing. It would have cost the 49ers just over $5.3 million to franchise tag Robbie Gould again.
Here’s a look at the current 90-man roster:
|Brock Purdy||Christian McCaffrey||Kyle Juszczyk||Deebo Samuel||George Kittle||Jake Brendel||Aaron Banks||Spencer Burford||Trent Williams||Colton McKivitz|

My numbers were previously off, as Alfredo Gutierrez does not count toward the roster since he’s an international exception.
