The full list of tryouts for the 49ers includes:

  1. S John Boyett

Of this group, the 49ers signed Exum to their practice squad.

Payton, 24, was taken in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL draft. He was in the second year of his four-year, $2.584 million contract and set to make a base salary of $540,000 for the 2017 season when the Browns waived him coming out of the preseason.

Payton served a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drugs policy last year.

In 2016, Payton has appeared in four games for the Browns but has caught just a single pass for three yards and no touchdowns.
