San Francisco 49ers Release Cornerback

The San Francisco 49ers have released Tre Swilling. 

Swilling's time with the Saints was spent solely on their practice squad, so the cornerback did not get into any game action. As a result, New Orleans is simply losing a depth player with this decision.

Although this is a rough occurrence for Swilling, there is a chance that another club could sign him to their practice squad before the season is over. Time will tell if that does in fact come to fruition from here.
