Adam Snyder released by the offensive line-thin 49ers

San Francisco 49ers head coach Harbaugh congratulates Snyder after the 49ers defeated the New Orleans Saints in their NFL NFC Divisional playoff football game in San Francisco Reuters

The 49ers were running short on the offensive line anyway, with the holdout of guard Alex Boone.

But they’re even younger and thinner there now.

According to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com, the 49ers are cutting veteran offensive lineman Adam Snyder.

There’s apparently nothing happening toward resolving the Boone situation, so the 49ers are going to go into the season with Joe Looney starting at right guard and several young players in key backup roles.

The 32-year-old Snyder started four games for the 49ers last year, and has 87 NFL starts. He should find work quickly if he wants.

    A little surprised buy this, but hey we still have Gabbert so what could possibly go wrong?

    I didn’t see this coming considering the Boone hold out. Hope it means that Harbaugh and Co. see either Boone giving up his money grab or more importantly are impressed with the rookies. Either way,

    GO NINERS!!!!!

    Giants or Packers should pick him up

    If this guy is any good, Buffalo might call.

    They have been desperate for guards.

    If you have watched Snyder play you can see why…. Graded out bottom third every year

    Kaepernick is going to have an epic failure this season.

    Might have a hand shake deal to bring him back on a minimum deal when Dorsey is placed on IR next week. Will Save about 600K and He’s not exactly a hot commodity to other teams at a mil plus

    As Arizona learned, Snyder is just not a high-quality backup. The younger, cheaper options are also better options.

    i eagerly await the jonathan martin cut

  12. bolvi says: Aug 30, 2014 3:38 PM

    Martin isn’t getting cut. He has actually impressed me after the 1st preseason game

  13. kingadrock99 says: Aug 30, 2014 4:29 PM

    They should cut Jonathan Martin and pick up Incognito.

    Do you know the way to Santa Clara?…..

    Gotta admit confused in this and also osgood and spillman are beast in special teams coverage. I didn’t expect to keep Lloyd with addition of Stevie and Bruce Ellington has looked nasty in preseason.

    3 straight conference championship games… I think they know what they’re doing.
