No. 5: Waiving Wide Receiver Devon Cajuste
The 49ers signed former Stanford wide receiver Devon Cajuste as an undrafted free agent. The 6-foot-4, 227-pound wideout was a proven red-zone threat in college.
Considering the Niners’ woes in this area over the last few years, head coach Chip Kelly could have used a player of Cajuste’s stature.
Granted, Cajuste didn’t make much of an impact during the preseason. He did have one catch for 40 yards though, and his hands were certainly something of note.
But the Niners didn’t keep him on the roster. And the team still has plenty of questions at wide receiver.
As such, the 49ers released Cajuste and did not place him on their practice squad.
Per Eric Branch of SFGate.com, Cajuste will be joining the Green Bay Packers practice squad instead.
It may take a year or so, but Cajuste could be a nice piece in the Packers offense.
San Francisco missed out on this one.
