49ers promote DB Tyvis Powell; release LB Terence Garvin The San Francisco 49ers announced a pair of transactions on Saturday 2019 Dre Greenlaw Jersey , promoting defensive back Tyvis Powell and releasing linebacker Terence Garvin. Both moves shouldn’t be surprising. With Reuben Foster off suspension and Malcolm Smith (hopefully) getting ready to play, the 49ers didn’t need a linebacker. Unfortunately, the secondary is banged up with safety Jaquiski Tartt listed as questionable due to a shoulder injury. They need secondary help now. Powell saw some action in late 2017 getting promoted in the later-half of December. He recorded three tackles. He was released in 2018 during roster cuts and sent back to the practice squad. While there has been no final decision on Tartt’s status for Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs, this was likely a move to pre-empt him being unable to play. We probably won’t know how the depth chart shakes out until the final report comes Sunday morning. On Tuesday, Washington justified its decision to make a waivers claim for linebacker Reuben Foster by declaring that the powers-that-be spoke to Foster’s former Alabama teammates who currently play for the team. On Wednesday, it became clear that 40 percent of them weren’t contacted.So what really happened?“We didn’t hold a convention,” senior V.P. of player personnel Doug Williams told The Team 980 on Thursday. “It wasn’t like we talked to all five. . . . The ones we did talk to knew him very well.”Here’s the quote from the P.R.-driven press release aimed at explaining the move to give safe harbor to a player who has been accused twice this year of domestic violence:聽“[W]e decided to investigate the situation with Reuben further by claiming his rights after candid conversations with a number of his ex-Alabama teammates and current Redskins players who were overwhelmingly supportive of us taking this chance.”Technically, the statement is true and accurate. Still, why not talk to all five? How hard would that have been? What if one of the players to whom the team didn’t speak would have said something like, “Off the record Dre Greenlaw San Francisco 49ers Jersey , none of this surprises me”?The fact that the team didn’t talk to all five underscores the reality that Washington simply took a blind flier on Foster, squatting on his rights and paying him more than $250,000 for dibs on his services in 2019, if/when he’s cleared to play. And it also shows that they did the absolute bare minimum to explore Foster’s true character before adding him to the team, opting instead to defer the bulk of the research to the days, weeks, and months to come.The NFL can’t be happy with that. The story dominated sports and non-sports news on Wednesday, showing up in morning shows and nightly news and otherwise making the league seem insensitive to the scourge of domestic violence.
