The San Francisco 49ers announced a series of roster moves on Tuesday.
Placed on waivers:
- LB Joey Alfieri
- CB Jermaine Kelly
- S Derrick Kindred
- OL Ray Smith
- QB Broc Rutteer
- DL Willie Henry Jr. (non-football illness)
- WR Chris Finke (non-football injury)
Placed on the active/PUP list:
Samuel, 24, was the No. 36 overall pick by the 49ers out of South Carolina in 2019. He’s entering the second year of a four-year, $7,697,356 rookie contract that includes a $3,618,076 signing bonus.
In 2019, Samuel appeared in 15 games for the 49ers and caught 57 passes for 802 yards and three touchdowns. He also had 14 rush attempts for 159 yards and another three touchdowns.
Kindred, 26, is a former fourth-round pick of the Browns back in 2016. Cleveland waived him back in April and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Colts.
Indianapolis elected to cut Kindred during the preseason and he was later claimed by the Jets. Unfortunately, New York moved on from his soon after it took until January for him to sign a futures contract with the 49ers.
In 2018, Kindred appeared in all 16 games for the Browns and recorded 43 tackles, one interception, a forced fumble and a pass defense. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 90 safety out of 93 qualifying players.
