49ers waived or released RB Jewel Hampton, S D.J. Campbell, WR Devon Wylie, QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson, TE Kevin Greene, P Colton Schmidt, WR David Reed, and ILB Kion Wilson.

Hampton was liked by the 49ers last year, but he was bringing up the rear of the depth chart. McBLT was the No. 4 quarterback. Wylie is a slot receiver-only.

49ers signed RB Jewel Hampton and QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson to reserve/future contracts.

Hampton lost out to Anthony Dixon for the final roster spot in the Niners' backfield last summer, but the team reportedly really liked him. McBLT will compete to be Colin Kaepernick's backup.

49ers waived RB Jewel Hampton, NT Mike Purcell, FB Jason Schepler, OT Kenny Wiggins, LB Joe Holland, WR Chuck Jacobs, LB Travis Johnson, CB Darryl Morris, OG Patrick Omameh, and TE MarQuies Gray.

Hampton, Gray, and Jacobs in particular will be practice squad candidates. Hampton was competing for one roster spot with Anthony Dixon, and Dixon won out.

Jewel Hampton and Anthony Dixon are expected to compete for one roster spot in 49ers camp.

The Niners "really like" 2012 UDFA Hampton, who redshirted as a rookie. The job is expected to come down to special teams, where Dixon excelled last season. Dixon and Hampton are vying for the No. 4 running back job. Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter, and LaMichael James are locked in as the top three backs.

The 49ers "really like" RB Jewel Hampton.

Signed as an undrafted rookie out of Southern Illinois, Hampton spent the majority of his rookie year on PUP, and didn't appear in a game. The 49ers may be high on Hampton's talent, but already have Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter, LaMichael James and Anthony Dixon under contract at running back. Hampton would likely need Dixon to fall back out of favor to have any chance of making the 53-man roster.

49ers RB Jewel Hampton (lower leg, PUP) will resume practicing on Tuesday.

Hampton tore both ACLs at Iowa before transferring to Southern Illinois. Coach Jim Harbaugh said in late July that the undrafted free agent had bone spurs removed from a "lower extremity." The 49ers have three weeks to activate Hampton. As deep as the team is at running back, though, Hampton is more likely to stay on the reserve/non-football injury list for the rest of the season.
