49ers Release Taylor; Sign Beeler to P-Squad

Posted by Taylor Price on October 18, 2011 – 9:52 AM

The San Francisco 49ers announced that they have released WR Kerry Taylor from the team’s practice squad and signed C Chase Beeler to the unit.

Beeler (6-3, 285) originally signed with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent on 7/27/11 and was released last week. He was signed to San Francisco’s practice squad on 9/4/11.

A 23-year old native of Jenks, OK, Beeler started 32 games at Stanford after transferring from Oklahoma following his freshman year. In 2010, he was named AP first-team All-American, first-team All-Pac-10 and second-team All-American by the Walter Camp Football Foundation. He graduated from Stanford with a degree in history.

Taylor (6-0, 197) originally signed as an undrafted free agent with the Green Bay Packers on 7/28/11 and was released following training camp. He was then signed to the New England Patriots practice squad on 9/5/11 and was later released on 9/16. The 49ers signed him on 10/12/11 to the practice squad.

    The headline and the story seem to conflict. Which one has been released and which one has been signed??!!

    Nastalgia is nice. But giving your team broader depth is mean and successful. Good job scouting. You’re barking up the right tree. Regardless of A. Smith’s success, no qb has ever been good without many smart and capable receivers in the flanks.

    I felt the 49ers depth at WR was better than out depth on the offensive line. After we lost Baas to free agancy. Beeler has real talent and can develop into a starter fiven time. However, when it was announced that John Taylors nephew was on the practice squad I was hoping that lightning strikes twice. JT was one of the best WRs of his time and would have been the man on any other team he played on but since he was opposite Jerry Rice most people don’t remember him. He was an incredible receiver.

    Beeler is a real talent. Led Stanford’s O-Line the past couple of years as a its Team All American (Luck was sacked 3-4 times last year). Physical and smart—two ingredients for success up front. Mistake to release him last week, as I am certain other teams tried to poach him. Glad the Niners made the right decision.

    I did not see Taylor play, so I’m not sad about his leaving, but i like the sound of the highly honored, much LARGER Beeler replacing him. At 285, is this man a WR or a Tight End? He might also be able to play fullback or cover at linebacker…. More versatile, he seems to me

    just because John Taylor was a gtreat wr doesnt mean that his nephew is…..i had a cousin named Toi Cook that was a CB for the 94 niners that won the SUPERBOWL but im not a great N.F.L cornerback……but i do wish kerry taylor well……go niners

    Beeler will be a very solid pro. In Baas all he did is perform mediocre at best, the only thing you miss with him being gone is experience and a bigger price tag

    #41 Toi Cook was a great pickup for the Niners back in the day. Cook made his mark in the league with some great seasons playing for the Saints before he became a Niner. Glad he got his ring. Another great Niner midseason pickup from the Saints in ’94 was sackmaster and p a s s rush specialist Rickey Jackson. Man that ’94 defense was sick. Bryant Young, Stubblefield, Jackson, Richard Dent, Norton, Plummer, Hanks, Davis, McDonald, and of course PrimeTime.

    People probably don’t remember this but that ’94 Super Bowl team had some major STAR POWER on defense.

    Charles Mann, 4-time Pro Bowler, was a beast with the Redskins. He regularly posted seasons with 10+ sacks with Washington. He came to SF in his last NFL season and got a ring.

    Rickey Jackson, a Hall of Famer and 6-time Pro Bowl defensive end/linebacker, was a heavy contributor for the Niners that year. But he made his name with the Saints. 11th on the all-time sack list.

    Tim Harris, another Pro Bowl sackmaster, who once had 19.5 sacks in a season for the Packers and had 17 in a season for the Niners. He was a beast.

    Richard Dent, a Hall of Famer. 6th on the all-time sack list. Made his name with the Bears but his leadership helped the Niners defense gain the toughness that was needed to dethrone the hated Cowboys.

    Not to mention Bryant Young, who is arguably the greatest defensive tackle to ever don a Niner uniform.

    Not to mention Ken Norton, Lee Woodall, and Gary Plummer, a linebacking core that had the perfect balance of speed, smarts, and power.

    Not to mention the Niners had the BEST secondary in the NFL hands down.

    Man that defense was tough. I would rank that defense with any of the greatest defenses that ever played in the Super Bowl – the Steelers of the 70s, the Steelers of the 2000s, the Ravens of the 2000s, the ’85 Bears, ’87 Giants. The reason NOBODY heaped a lot of praise on the ’94 Niners defense was because our OFFENSE was so effn legendary.

    Sorry, for taylor but players get dropped and picked up, the niners have to make moves on thier practice squad to make the team better, we are 5-1 for a reason if the coaches feel that beeler will make the squad better in practice then so be it…i’m all for it if we continue to win 6-1, then 7-1….taylor good luck on finding a team..

  19. By anthony on Oct 26, 2011 | Reply

    yeah, i think he will be back soon

    We need to pick up Terrell Owens. I don’t care what anybody has to say after reading this or what you may say about him. he is overall a good wide receiver and makes plays when needed and it wouldn’t hurt to put him on the roster and have him support our core receivers that we have…Ginn, Edwards, Morgan & Crabtree. Nothing wrong with being able to sub in different receivers starting each on in different games. especially since T.O. is a strong and also would be a threat for any team we’d play against. He creates double team situations which would leave other receivers as well as the tight ends, Davis & Walker, open to make big plays. Also, let’s not forget that with added receiver threat that also opens up the running game as well. forcing the defense to pick whether to blitz and get beat in the backfield or fall back & get beat in our rushing game. so if the 49ers coach, owner, or anyone within the organization is reading this….get T.O. while no one is bothering to get him. Don’t miss the opportunity like when teams(including we, the 49ers) could have gotten Vick. Take a chance on a good player and mold him into a greater one than he already is. He started a 49er…let’s finish him as one.

    Terrell Owens comes with to much baggage and he is the queen of drama, their are way better receivers out there then TO. and come on, Vick? The Eagles are not doing good at all this season. If he was so great, why are the Eagles in 17th place overall? He is an OK QB, but Alex is a way better and smarter QB the Vick is. My opinion!
