Bechta points out that teams generally waive a player on Saturday to try to sneak them through waivers, as it’s harder for teams to make waiver claim over the weekend as they’re preparing for their upcoming games.
Hayne tweeted that he wound likely return to San Francisco, barring a team placing a waiver claim on him over the next few days.

Following the news that the 49ers cut Hayne on Saturday, Matt Barrows mentioned that it would not be surprising to see the Seahawks place a waiver claim on Hayne.
It’s also worth mentioning that the Lions also had interest in Hayne before he signed with the 49ers earlier in the year.
Hayne, 27, signed a three-year contract that included $115,100 guaranteed with the 49ers back in March. He stands to make a base salary of $435,000 for the 2015 season.
This season, he’s appeared in six games and ran for 25 yards on eight carries (3.1 YPC) to go along with one reception for seven yards receiving. He has also contributed 76 kick return yards.
We’ll have more regarding Hayne as the news is available.
