49ers activate Nick Moody, cut Perrish Cox

As expected, the 49ers released wide receiver Kyle Williams on Tuesday afternoon.

That wasn’t the end of their roster shuffling, however. The team also announced that linebacker Nick Moody has been activated from injured reserve and that cornerback Perrish Cox will be joining Williams in the unemployment line.

“Decisions like these are always difficult, especially at this time of year,” General Manager Trent Baalke said in a statement from the team. “Kyle and Perrish have represented the 49ers organization very well, both on and off the field. We appreciate their dedication and contributions and wish them all the best.”

Moody, a sixth-round pick last April, broke his hand in the opening week of the season. Cox played sparingly for the 49ers in recent weeks and Eric Wright’s return likely eliminated any need to keep him on the roster.

    It’s about time they dropped Kyle Williams. He’s never recovered mentally from his 2 fumbles in the 2011 Season NFC Championship game. Been bobbling and dropping punts and passes ever since.

    Uh…do you know anything at all about P. Cox? Maybe you should look into that.

    “Hello Perrish Cox? This is Tom Telesco, GM from the Chargers…” Lord knows the Bolts need secondary help BADLY right now. Please makes something happen.

    Detroit beats you…if you’re going to hope, Romo is always good for a loss in a big game.

    Moody is a Nole…represent!

    I thought the 49ers coronation of Kaepernick by Harbough was celebrated prematurely….serves Harbough right, one of those haughty coaches that thinks very highly of himself…not a fan!

    Glad to see Alex smith doing well.

    Assured mutual destruction do you try to sound like a moron or is it like a natural gift. You know I’m sure there’s bliss in being clueless

    For those 49ers “fans” clamoring for the signing of a WR, or TO (you’re out of your mind), Crabtree is coming back very soon.
