Johnathan Cyprien, Dion Jordan Land On 49ers’ Practice Squad

A 71-game starter throughout a seven-year career, Johnathan Cyprien expressed skepticism about joining the 49ers’ practice squad recently. Kyle Shanahan expressed intrigue about the opportunity to carry up to six experienced players on his 2020 practice squad. But the 49ers made the longtime safety one of their cuts Saturday, and he changed his tune.

Cyprien, 30, agreed to join San Francisco’s practice squad. He will make $12K per week for each week he is on the 49ers’ P-squad. Were he to be promoted to the active roster, that rate would change to at least the veteran minimum.

Cyprien was a full-time Jaguars starter for four seasons, from 2013-16, and started 10 games for the 2017 Titans. He has not been a regular first-stringer since, however. He will join former Bears top-10 pick Dion Jordan and Kevin White on the 49ers’ P-squad.

San Francisco signed White recently, but he did not make the active roster. The 49ers added Jordan this offseason as well. The former No. 3 overall pick played rotational roles with the Seahawks and Raiders over the past three seasons. While suspensions have defined the defensive end’s career, he will have another chance to stay with a team — albeit in unusual fashion.

Here is the 49ers’ full practice squad:

    Jordan was not a top ten bears pick. He was a Bear, but they didn’t draft him.

      I have to agree, but I am surprised they didn’t choose to develop and bring along another QB.

      We all know what Beathard is by now, and it isnt very good. Mullens at least still shows some positive signs in practice, and has easily won the backup job the last two seasons..Trade or most likely release Beathard, and then they should have signed someone like Josh Rosen just to take a shot..

      I’m honestly just glad they were able to keep Hasty!! The dude looked like a legit weapon out of the backfield, and he was breaking his defensive teammates ankles, making them look silly..

      Other then that, we very well could see Daniels, Jennings, Mayden, Shepley, and possibly Harrell as players that could end up making thenswiad next season. Let’s not forget the 49ers are going to end up having almost half of their roster hit free agency after this season is over!! /:

    12k per week to be on the PS! I really should have practiced harder in high school
