Shanahan, Lynch Discuss 53-Man Roster Decisions and Updates on Moody and Kittle
The San Francisco 49ers have their 53-man roster and 16-player practice squad after days of deliberation and tough decisions.

Position-By-Position Breakdown of the 49ers Initial 2023 53-Man Roster
The San Francisco 49ers have made their moves to arrive at their initial 53-man roster by the NFL's August 29, 1:00 p.m. PT deadline. Unlike in years past, clubs did not go through a series of league-mandated roster reductions over the course of training camp and the preseason due to a resolution passed in March at the Annual League Meeting. Instead, teams only had to meet one cutdown date.
