Kassim Osgood WR SF 6 Months

Osgood has been waived by the 49ers.

This is to make room for San Francisco to sign safety Bubba Ventrone. Seldom used at wide receiver, dropping Osgood is more about special teams depth for the 49ers than what they want to do in the passing game.

The 49ers released Osgood on Saturday, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports.

Osgood has been a special teams All-Pro three times in his career, but his value as a wide receivers has always been limited, and he's worth even less now that he's been released.

Osgood is expected to re-sign with the 49ers on Wednesday, CSN Bay Area reports.

Osgood was released by the 49ers over the weekend, but will return to the team once defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey (biceps) is placed on the injured reserve/designated for return list. While Osgood's official position designation is wide receiver, he boasts merely 45 career receptions, making him of fantasy little value. Nonetheless, Osgood has been named to the Pro Bowl three times for his expertise on special teams, where he figures to continue as one of the league's premier kick coverage men this season.
