49ers Release Datone Jones

The 49ers have released defensive end Datone Jones, as Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee tweets. The move may create room on the roster for the return of defensive end Tank CarradineDatone Jones (vertical)

Jones joined up with the Niners in late October, marking his third NFL team of the season. The former first round pick was cut by Vikings during the preseason and cut loose by the Lions one month ago in order to bring in quarterback Brad Kaaya. Despite his trio of stops this year, Jones’ only action came with the Niners. In a reserve role, Jones totaled six tackles in three games.

The release of Jones comes one day after the Niners claimed former Jaguars defensive lineman Sheldon Day off waivers. Day apparently has lots of believers around the NFL – at least three other teams put in claims on the second-year pro.
