Not sure it makes much sense to cut him if a trade doesn't materialize, I don't think he is worse than Paulsen and Celek. Might as well give him the chance to shine a little bit in Shanny's offense to create a bit of a trade value. Can't get any worse anyway.

 

Monetarily speaking, there is no incentive to cut him. If we cut him, the cap hit is twice as much as keeping him, to be perfectly honest. Celek is already gone, he has no shot. Same for Bell. Those guys are both out there trying to putting on a show for other teams. Paulsen is primarily a blocking tight end, but he's one that Shanny and Lynch wanted, and clearly, they do not like Vance, especially after trying to trade him. that can be a powerful reason to let him go, even the contract. I mean, if he's dropping passes (as he always done), so much so that we aren't even looking at him when he's on the field, there's no reason to keep him whatsoever. You have to be able to trust the guys out there.

Rookie George Kittle aggravated the hamstring injury that bothered him early in training camp and won't play Friday. Logan Paulsen and Vance McDonald were with the first-string unit when it first took the field, although the starting composition likely will depend on what play the 49ers run. Garrett Celek, Cole Hikutini and Blake Bell have been working with the second- and third-team groups.
