The 49ers on Monday released cornerback Ken Webster as they trim their roster to the 85-player threshold required by the NFL. The deadline for the first wave of cuts is 1:00 pm Tuesday.

Webster joined the 49ers last season when injuries depleted their secondary. He played in nine games almost exclusively on special teams, but suffered a hamstring injury in Week 12 that sidelined him for the rest of the year.

He rejoined San Francisco in the offseason and had a real shot to battle for a roster spot thanks to his special teams contributions. The team used two draft picks on cornerbacks though and re-signed K’Waun Williams, Emmanuel Moseley and Jason Verrett which dramatically limited the number of available roster spots.

Webster wasn’t officially released Monday, but head coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed a report from NBC Sports Bay Area’s Matt Maiocco that Webster was let go. Defensive lineman Eddie Vanderdoes, and linebackers Donald Payne and James Burgess were also let go Monday.
