Alex Boone return, and why Kassim Osgood has been cut twice over the last week

The San Francisco 49ers officially added Alex Boone back to the roster on Saturday. We take a look at some reasons why Kassim Osgood might have been cut twice in the span of a week. The San Francisco 49ers welcomed back offensive lineman Alex Boone earlier this week, and made it official on Saturday when they moved him from their exempt list, to their 53-man roster. The 49ers had Boone on the Reserve/Did Not Report list, but when he ended his holdout, the 49ers were given a brief exemption. In order to make room for Boone, the 49ers released wide receiver Kassim Osgood. This marked Osgood's...

The San Francisco 49ers announced the return of Alex Boone on Saturday. The team released Kassim Osgood to clear space. The San Francisco 49ers officially activated offensive lineman Alex Boone on Saturday. To make room, the team released Kassim Osgood, who skips waivers and immediately becomes a free agent as a vested veteran. After spending the offseason holding out, and appearing on the Reserve/Did Not Report list, Boone was exempted from the 53-man roster upon his return. They had to activate him before close of business on Saturday, and as head coach Jim Harbaugh mentioned on Friday,...

49ers 53-man roster and the wide receiver position

49ers 53-man roster and the wide receiver position

The San Francisco 49ers are carrying six wide receivers on their 53-man roster (well, seven if you include Kassim Osgood). How many, if any, will be inactive this Sunday? The San Francisco 49ers cut down to 53 players over the weekend, and in doing so, they elected to keep six wide receivers. The group consists of Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin, Stevie Johnson, Quinton Patton, Bruce Ellington and Brandon Lloyd. The 49ers reportedly will bring back Kassim Osgood soon, but his role is almost exclusively as a special teams player. As the 49ers prepare for the Dallas Cowboys, I find myself...

Jim Harbaugh expects Kassim Osgood to return as soon as Tuesday

49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said on Tuesday that special teams ace Kassim Osgood could return to the 49ers as soon as today. We break down how they could fit him on the roster. San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh announced on KNBR this morning that he anticipates wide receiver Kassim Osgood returning to the team today. Coach Harbaugh said if team places Glenn Dorsey on injured reserve with the return designation, Osgood will return. This also seems to mean Alex Boone will remain exempt from the 53-man roster for now. I am not shocked Osgood is returning, although I expected it...
