49ers announce practice squad

The 49ers announced their practice squad this afternoon. It consists of these eight players:

DT   Tony Jerod-Eddie

LB     Cam Johnson

DT    Matthew Masifilo

T       Al Netter

WR   Nathan Palmer

S       Michael Thomas

T       Kenny Wiggins

LB     Michael Wilhoite

Five surprises:

  1. The San Diego Chargers picked up Chris Owusu and placed him on their practice squad.
  2. WR Nathan Palmer received practice-squad offers from the New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins and Arizona Cardinals, but he turned them down to join the Niners’ practice squad according to CBS Sports. I would have expected Owusu to decide to stay, not Palmer.
  3. The Indianapolis Colts gave LT Mike Person a spot on their 53-man roster.
  4. The New York Jets gave TE Konrad Reuland a spot on their 53-man roster.
  5. QB Josh Johnson has not been picked by an NFL team yet.
