Niners nix five players

The San Francisco 49ers have complied, two days early, with the requirement that they reduce their rosters from 80 to 75.

Gone are receiver Mark Bradford, receiver Chris Francies, kicker Alex Romero, cornerback Carlos Thomas, and cornerback Jahi Word-Daniels.

The team made the announcement on Sunday afternoon.

None had much of a history with the team.  All become fodder for the UFL.
