The 49ers got Deebo Samuel back at wide receiver for last Sunday night’s game against the Eagles and his return helped bring an end to Mohamed Sanu‘s brief time with the team.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the 49ers are releasing Sanu on Tuesday. He played in the last three games for the team.

Even with Samuel and Richie James out of action, Sanu only saw 40 offensive snaps so he had not been playing an outsize role for the team. He caught one pass for nine yards in his three appearances.

James is eligible to return from injured reserve and would join Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk, Kendrick Bourne, Dante Pettis and Trent Taylor in the receiving corps if he does get activated.

  1. Wait!!!

    Another of Andy Dalton’s “great” wide receivers is flushed slowly out of the league!!!

    I thought he was great and Dalton was “surrounded” with great players.

    Mohamed Sanu is/was a smart, high character locker room guy who averaged
    more per catch with Andy Dalton than with tom brady and Matt Ryan.

    11.8 yards per catch with Andy Dalton
    11.1 yards per catch with Matt Ryan
    08.0 yards per catch with tom brady

  2. He needs to sign on with the Eagles or Jaguars. Eagles have everyone out injured and the Jaguars have no talent.

  3. Smart, high character veteran that lacks explosiveness
    and gets no separation.

    Wherever he chooses to live… he will be good for the community.

  4. “i feel
    more at home here than ne”

    lol

    No, dude, you injured your foot and you’re not the same player because of it.

    It’s ok to admit it.

    BB is salivating for his services once again!

    Aaron Rogers is salivating thinking about the prospects of playing your Vikings. He plans to hang 70 on them

    Do you think the fact that he was getting old had something to do with that?
