San Francisco 49ers: Bubble-Watch Players for Each Position
By Bobby Horne
In just a few short months, the San Francisco 49ers will have to finalize its 53-man roster heading into the 2016 season. This means that some players will not make the cut, while some will see it coming, others are on the “bubble”, and will have to fight for their spot. Niner Noise takes a look at which players, at each position, are in risk of missing the cut.
With San Francisco 49ers training camp on the horizon, the pads come on and the men are separated from the boys. The veterans prove why they are there, some of the young guys will surprise and we will find out who is NFL ready.
Being a veteran, however, does not guarantee a roster spot in today’s NFL. The speed of the game has changed, and some older players might find themselves in a situation where a younger guy just might be the better option. Some players might have a lack of production and maybe it’s time for someone else to step up.
In any case, training camp is when teams are made, coaches find out who has chemistry and who doesn’t. They sense who is understanding the playbook better and decisions must be made.
While cutting from 90 players to 53 is a huge cut, we will be focusing on the players that are riding that thin line of being a contributor or being released — the type of player that might be one or two big preseason plays away from earning their spot.
