Nate Lawrie cut by 49ers

Former Yale tight end Nate Lawrie was cut by the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday meaning that there are no Yale products on any current NFL rosters.

Lawrie, originally drafted by Tampa Bay in the sixth round of the 2004 draft, was signed by the 49ers during training camp. He had a catch in San Francisco's final preseason game against San Diego but it was not enough to earn him a spot on the
49ers' 53-man roster.

Former Yale fullback Shane Bannon, cut by the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday, and defensive end Tom McCarthy, waived by the Atlanta Falcons on Friday, are candidates to be signed to NFL practice squads.

As for the current squad, here is a slideshow to 10 players to watch on the 2011 Yale squad.
