The 49ers trimmed their roster to 53 players at the NFL deadline on Saturday afternoon. With the roster being at 75 players prior to today, 21 players need to be released as a result.

With Aldon Smith on the reserve/suspended list, he will not count against the 53-man roster through the first 10 weeks (nine games) of the 2014 season. He was suspended yesterday for violating several policies by the league.
