49ers Waive WR J.J. Nelson From IR With Settlement


The San Francisco 49ers waived WR J.J. Nelson from injured reserve with a settlement on Sunday, according to Tom Pelissero

Nelson was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury last week. 

Nelson, 28, is a former fifth-round pick of the Cardinals back in 2015. He played out the final year of his four-year rookie contract before signing on with the Raiders last year. 

The Raiders later released Nelson in October and it took until a few weeks ago for him to join the 49ers. 

In 2019, Nelson appeared in two games for the Raiders and caught four passes for 36 yards receiving and one touchdown.
