The 49ers took many steps on Tuesday to compile their list for the start of the training camp.
The team announced that it was giving up seven players, five on the list of physically incapacitated and two more on the list of non-football players. The last group has a wide receiver Deebo Samuel, who broke his leg while working in June. CEO John Lynch said on Tuesday that the team believes the injury “may miss several games” due to the injury.
Defensive rear DJ Reed is also on the NFI list, with defensive lineman Ronald Blair, wide receiver Shawn Poindexter, Weston Richburg Center, defensive lineman Kentavius Street and defensive lineman Jullian Taylor on the PUP list.
Linebacker Joey Alfieri, corner Jermaine Kelly, safety specialist Derrick Kindred, striker Ray Smith, striker Broc Rutter, wide receiver Chris Finke and defensive lineman Willie Henry were fired from the list.
