He was back. Then he wasn’t. Now he is. Sort of.

Receiver Kevin White, the seventh overall pick in the 2015 draft, has joined the 49ers’ practice squad.

The 49ers had released White on Saturday. He originally signed with the 49ers in late August.

White spent four injury-riddled seasons with the Bears. He signed with the Cardinals in the 2019 offseason. Arizona cut him in August 2019, and he sat out the entire season.

Joining White on the San Francisco practice squad is veteran defensive lineman Dion Jordan, the third overall pick in the 2013 draft. His career has been limited by multiple suspensions under the league’s PED and substance-abuse policy.

The 49ers also gave a spot on the practice squad to veteran safety Johnathan Cyprien. The 2013 second-round pick of the Jaguars also was released by the 49ers on Saturday.

This year, teams can have up to six members of the practice squad with unlimited experience. The March 2020 CBA pegged the number at four; the supplemental agreement reached during the pandemic increased the minimum from four to six.

Also on the 49ers practice squad are receiver River Cracraft, defensive lineman Darrion Daniels, offensive lineman Hroniss Grasu, tight end Chase Harrell, cornerback Tim Harris Jr., running back JaMycal Hasty, fullback Josh Hokit, receiver Jauan Jennings, cornerback Dontae Johnson, safety Jared Mayden, offensive lineman Dakoda Shepley, offensive lineman William Sweet, and linebacker Joe Walker.

  1. ..so is that 4 PS members with unlimited experience the lifetime of the CBA? If so, that’s pretty awesome for some vets.

    I don’t understand this random need to hate players as if you’ve paid them! Did you have a 10 year pro-bowl career in the NFL? I didn’t think so! Try grace and class for a change.

    Mean has been done enough!

  3. Man this is like the all-pro team of this past decades biggest busts. And no I don’t have a 10 year pro bowl career either, so I guess I shouldn’t comment about these football players. . . .on a football site. . . .in the comment section. . . .about football.

    The issue is about having grace and class, neither of which you have. Having the ability to comment on a football site doesn’t give you carte blanche to spew hatred.

  5. Lol apparently I don’t have grace and class because I said a player is a bust. Every single season there is talk about nfl busts on every sports network. Its part of football. I guess we can only say positive things about players and give them all participation trophies. Im not bashing them as men or even wondering why theyre still trying to further their careers. I’d do the same thing if I were them. But still, these guys are considered busts. Get over yourself. Why are you attacking me? You should be nicer and have more class. Yea, sounds pretty lame, huh?

  6. There’s nobody that wanted White to perform anymore than me. Sucks to see the way it transpired. Make the most of your career while you can and hopefully you have a good financial planner. You got to play in the NFL for years and I’ll be working another 22 years to retire.

    How in the world is Cyprien eligible for a practice squad???

    ————————–

    New rule for this year allows 6 veterans on the PS. Covid-19 insurance.
