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.
