On Tuesday morning, the San Fransisco 49ers signed running back Travaris Cadet. With this move being made, the team decided to waive Pierre Thomas, who was signed by the 49ers last Tuesday.
Thomas would play only 4 total snaps last week against the Atlanta Falcons, carrying the ball for 12 total yards.
The 49ers have been in a downward spiral at almost every position, and running back is no different. Carlos Hyde’s stress fracture has kept him out since October 22nd. Reggie Bush happened to tear his MCL and is out for the year.
Cadet, who is 26 years old, is more of a proven special teams player rather than a running back. Before being signed by the 49ers, Cadet was with the New England Patriots.
