49ers waive LS-TE Kyle Nelson


The 49ers waived long-snapper / tight end Kyle Nelson on Wednesday, the club said.

San Francisco claimed Nelson on waivers from San Diego in May.

Nelson, 26, served as the Chargers’ long-snapper for the final six games of 2012 after Mike Windt suffered a broken hand. The Chargers signed Windt to a contract extension in March.

In another special teams move Wednesday, the 49ers agreed with rookie punter Colton Schmidt.

    That move now basically gives the 49ers no chance of winning a Super Bowl, Kyle Nelson is a game-changer, one of the most explosive, dominating players in the game as we see it, future hall-of-famer

    They still have one more young guy to provide competition for long snapper duties but I hope Brian Jennings gets at least one more year.

    Brian Jennings is still playing at an above average level 10 years into his career. There was no chance outside of injury Kyle Nelson was going to unseat him anyways.

    The top comment is a joke right? Just want to make sure we’re all on the same page here and that there really isn’t 40+ people that liked it could think a would be 3rd stringer had a chance at the hall of fame. Joke…. I’m with ya 😉

    No Worries, Mr. Nelson…Keep working out and stay by the phone. Long Snappers always get picked up.

    Absolutely no way the 49ers will be able to compete with the Seahawks now… sad day.

    Kyle Nelson walks out of 49ers headquarters and puts his head down. He quietly whispers to himself one last time, “Who’s got it better than us…(rolls a tear)…nobody.”
