Kyle’s update, 11:41 AM PT: ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Malik Turner has been cut. Shanahan spoke glowingly about Turner, saying he loved that he’s taken advantage of his opportunity. This is the first surprise. I doubt he makes it through waivers.
Kyle’s update, 11:33 AM PT: ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported the Niners let go of Kemoko Turay, Dontae Johnson, and Justin Skule. Turay got caught up in a numbers game. I imagine Jordan Willis’s familiarity and preseason success won him the job.
Johnson will likely be back, especially with Jimmie Ward expected to miss the first month of the season.
