  • Willie Snead: Returns to practice squad

    The 49ers signed Snead to their practice squad Tuesday, per the team's official site.

    Since late August, Snead has gone back and forth between the 49ers' practice squad and their active roster, so this transaction doesn't come with much surprise. However, the veteran receiver could find himself back on the team's 53-man roster after San Fransisco's Week 9 bye if either Deebo Samuel (hamstring) or Jauan Jennings (hamstring) are unable to gain medical clearance in time for the 49ers' Week 10 matchup against the Chargers.

  • Willie Snead: Let go Monday

    Snead was cut by the 49ers on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Snead was signed to the team's active roster from their practice squad Saturday, as Deebo Samuel and Jauan Jennings were both out due to hamstring injuries. Despite playing 21 snaps on offense against the Rams, he failed to see a target. He'll now look for an opportunity elsewhere, although it wouldn't be surprising if he ultimately ended up back with the 49ers' practice squad.

  • 49ers' Willie Snead: Signs with San Fran

    San Francisco signed Snead off its practice squad Saturday.

    Snead continues to bounce back and forth between the 49ers' active roster and practice squad, but he's finally secured a spot on the 53-man roster ahead of Week 8. Deebo Samuel (hamstring) has already been ruled out and Jauan Jennings (hamstring) is questionable, so it's possible the veteran Snead sees a modest offensive role against the Rams on Sunday while playing behind Brandon Aiyuk, Ray-Ray McCloud and Danny Gray.

  • Willie Snead: Moves back to practice squad

    Snead reverted to the 49ers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Snead bounced back and forth between San Francisco's active roster and practice squad over the first four weeks, and he saw his first playing time of the season Sunday after being activated on game day. The 29-year-old wideout was not targeted while playing five of his 11 snaps on offense against the Falcons in Week 6.

  • 49ers' Willie Snead: Bumped up from practice squad

    The 49ers elevated Snead from the practice squad Saturday, Josh Dubow of The Associated Press reports.

    Snead will be included on the 49ers' gameday roster for the first time this season, but he's not a lock to be active for Sunday's game in Atlanta. The 49ers already have five healthy receivers (Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk, Jauan Jennings, Ray-Ray McCloud and Danny Gray) and may not need Snead as a depth option.

  • 49ers' Willie Snead: Suiting up Sunday

    Snead is active Sunday against the Falcons, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

    Snead was elevated from the practice squad Saturday. He was active for the team's Week 4 contest against the Rams, but he never played a down.

  • Willie Snead: Returns to practice squad

    The 49ers signed Snead to the practice squad Wednesday.

    Snead will rejoin San Francisco's practice squad after being added to the team's active roster ahead of Monday's win over the Rams. The veteran wideout, who has spent all but one week on the 49ers' practice squad since Aug. 31, did not get onto the field during this Week 4 matchup and was released Tuesday. Snead recorded four receptions over nine games with the Panthers and Raiders during the past two seasons, and he should provide emergency roster depth moving forward.

  • Willie Snead: Released by San Francisco

    The 49ers released Snead on Tuesday.

    Snead signed a one-year deal with the 49ers in August but was released before the 53-man roster deadline. He returned to the team on a practice-squad deal and was eventually signed to the active roster ahead of Monday's Week 4 matchup against the Rams. However, the veteran wideout didn't see any playing time during the contest and was released just a day later. Snead appeared in nine games with the Panthers and Raiders last year, securing four of eight targets for 38 yards.

  • 49ers' Willie Snead: Signed to active roster

    Snead was signed to the 49ers' active roster ahead of Monday's matchup with the Rams, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

    After returning to the team's practice squad Sept. 14, Snead will be elevated for Monday night's contest versus the Rams. The wide receiver appeared in nine games with the Panthers and Raiders last season, catching four passes for 38 yards on eight targets.

  • Willie Snead: Returns to 49ers' practice squad

    The 49ers signed Snead to their practice squad Wednesday.

    Snead originally signed a one-year deal with the 49ers at the beginning of August, but he was released ahead of the 53-man roster deadline. The veteran wideout then returned to the organization via a practice-squad deal a day later but was let go again last week. However, Snead has since returned to San Fransisco's practice squad and will look to carve out a role in an unproven wideout room. Across his seven-year career, Snead has caught 279 passes for 3,431 yards and 16 touchdowns, but he was unproductive last year during stints with Carolina and Las Vegas.

  • Willie Snead: Dropped from practice squad

    Snead was released from the 49ers' practice squad Wednesday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

    Snead initially joined San Francisco's practice squad after he was let go as part of the team's final roster cuts Aug. 30. The 29-year-old recorded 33 receptions for 432 yards and three touchdowns with the Ravens in 2020, but he hauled in just three passes for 32 yards over seven games with Las Vegas last year. Snead eventually finished the 2021 campaign on the Panthers' practice squad, and he will now likely look to join up with a new team in need of veteran wide receiver depth this regular season.

  • Willie Snead: Inks practice squad deal

    The 49ers signed Snead to their practice squad Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Snead signed with the 49ers at the beginning of August but failed to make the team's initial 53-man roster. However, he'll stick around the organization as a veteran depth piece on the practice squad. The 49ers' wideout corps lacks an established No. 3 option behind Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk, so it's possible Snead sees a promotion before too long.

  • Willie Snead: Released by Niners

    The 49ers released Snead on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Snead signed with the 49ers at the beginning of August, but he won't make the team's initial 53-man roster. The veteran wideout appeared in nine games last year -- split between Carolina and Las Vegas -- and totaled four receptions for 38 yards across nine appearances. Snead has caught at least 30 passes in five of his seven NFL seasons and should garner interest from teams around the league in search of wideout depth.

  • 49ers' Willie Snead: Signs with San Fran

    Snead signed a contract with the 49ers on Friday, Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network reports.

    Snead recently worked out with the Cardinals and came away without a deal, but a different NFC West team has decided to bring him in. The 29-year-old wide receiver will compete for a depth role in a receiving corps that lacks an established No. 3 option behind Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk.
