49ers claim Thaddeus Gibson off waivers

The 49ers claimed outside linebacker Thaddeus Gibson on Monday off waivers, according to a league source.

Gibson was a fourth-round pick of Pittsburgh before the Steelers waived him.  The Eagles also put in a claim for Gibson, but the 49ers had a higher priority.

The Giants also claimed Alex Hall off waivers from the Cardinals.  He’s spent time with New York earlier this year.
