San Francisco faced some interesting decisions when deciding who to keep and who to let go when cutting down their roster to 53 players. After an offseason and four preseason games to evaluate, the team has named its roster for the 2013 season, and there were two players let go that are of note for two very different reasons.
In Sunday’s Super Bowl, Brian Jennings of the San Francisco 49ers and Morgan Cox of the Baltimore Ravens will be snapping for punts, field goals and extra points. They have the same goal: Don’t do anything that draws a lick of attention.
Halfway through the week and the 49ers are sticking to the fundamentals for their game against the Lions. They will continue to stress ball security and feature a balance attack with their new Jumbo Package. Unlike the rest of the league, San Francisco doesn’t have to worry if their long snapper gets injured.
Brian Jennings is the longest tenured player on the San Francisco 49ers. A lot of that has to do with the position he plays — long snapper.
