The 49ers could not take Khalil Mack from the Raiders, but the organization will continue to try to improve their passport hurry.
The team retained ten defensive linemen in their first 53-man squad and coach Kyle Shanahan said all of them – except defensive tackles Earl Mitchell, DJ Jones and Sheldon Day – have the opportunity to contribute as Edge Rushers.
One of the 49er's final cuts was Jeremiah Attaochu, a talented athlete who had taken six sacks of the Chargers in 2016. The 49ers remained defensively in the end Ronald Blair, Cassius Marsh and Dekoda Watson instead of Attaochu, who missed time in training camp because of an Achilles tendon injury.
"When you go into the regular season, the reliability of knowing that a guy is out there is really important," said 49ers General Manager John Lynch. "And we just did not have that feeling, so we made a difficult decision, but we had to do it."
The 49ers have also cut the draft pick Pita Taumoepenu in 201
Nothing About the 49 Squad
The 49ers have reached the limits of 53 players on Saturday, but more roster safety Marcell Harris and Guard Erik Magnuson are candidates who go into injured reserve due to thigh bone injuries Shanahan. Harris's injury will probably put him out of action longer than Magnuson. Even the 49ers are looking forward to the results of Jerick McKinnon's MRI scan to determine if he's lost for practice because of a knee injury for the season Saturday

Jimmy Garoppolo and CJ Beathard are the two quarterbacks. The 49ers want to get Nick Mullens into the practice group, Shanahan said. … Running back Matt Breida and tight end George Kittle was cleared for training on Saturday and is expected to play week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings after parting three weeks ago in the preseason opener. … Brega and Alfred Morris are expected to share the ongoing tasks with McKinnon's expected long-term injury. … The 49ers opted for Cole Hick over Cole Hikutini for the third job behind Kittle and Garrett Celek. Wick had won the job in recent weeks as his blockage was the biggest factor, Shanahan said. Hikutini is a candidate to return to the practice group. … The 49ers retained six recipients: Pierre Garçon, Marquise Goodwin, Trent Taylor, Dante Pettis, Kendrick Bourne and Richie James. The first player was Aaron Burbridge, who is also a top special team player. "That was one of our toughest decisions," said Shanahan. "We have a very deep group at the broad receiver and it was difficult to decide on the six we kept, and we could have kept 10 and been satisfied with them all." … Veteran offensive attack Garry Gilliam remains in the NFL Return Game Protocol after a concussion three weeks ago. The 49ers landed a potential swing tackle, Shon Coleman, on Friday with the Cleveland Browns. Lynch said, "The more work we did, the more appreciation we had for him." The 49ers retained nine offensive linemen, consisting of five inside linemen and four tackles. Veteran Jonathan Cooper did not make the cut after slowly getting into shape from the offseason knee surgery. "We had higher expectations of him in the hope that he would have a chance (at the right watch) and two men beat him," Shanahan said. Mike Person and Joshua Garnett stay in the mix to start at the right-hand guard.
