49ers Cut 13 Players

The 49ers have released 13 players, including linebacker Jayson DiManche and wide receiver Eric Rogers. Here’s the full list:

DiManche was just signed on April 7th, so his stint in San Francisco lasted less than one month. We haven’t seen DiManche in live action since 2015 when he appeared in one game for the Browns. Prior to that, he spent two seasons with the Bengals.

Rogers, a former CFL standout, was a practice field favorite of Chip Kelly last offseason until an unfortunate injury shut him down for the season. This week, the 49ers signed undrafted Baylor wide receiver K.D. Cannon and that only further crowded the wide receiver position in SF. With Rogers and Harper out of the picture, the team still has nine receivers under contract.

    Disappointed to see Rogers gone. Wanted to see what he would do in his comeback

    Thought Skov would be a player. Remember him from college. Gritty hard nosed guy. Maybe he catches on somewhere

    Wow they are really cleaning house. I think I am surprised NT Mike Purcell. Showed some decent ability to become a decent NT. Overall we need to hit on some key UDFA to be starters or even role players.

      Yeah no, Purcell was GARBAGE last year. Not even close to showing anything decent. He was getting destroyed off the line.

        Correct!! Purcell has shown some flashes each year in oreseason, but that is it. Everytime he gets out in a regular season game, he gets pushed back and typically he ends up being just overmatched.

          I also meant to say, I do agree though, with your last statement. The 49ers do need to hit on a couple of their UDFA’s.

          I doubt any of the guys signed will become starters, but there are a couple of intriguing signees that should be able to work their way up the depth chart into their own respective positional rotations.
