The 49ers shuffled the bottom of their roster Monday, releasing seldom-used running back DuJuan Harris while signing three new undrafted players to free agent deals.
Joining the team are safety Chancellor James of Boist State, wide receiver BJ Johnson III of Georgia Southern University and offensive lineman Richard Levy of Connecticut.
Harris, who rushed 38 times for 138 yards and one touchdown in 10 games for Chip Kelly and the 49ers last year, was just re-signed in late March.
San Francisco also released wide receiver K.D. Cannon and 249-pound offensive lineman Bret Treadway, both of whom were signed before last week’s rookie mini-camp. Cannon, a former Baylor player, was given a $40,000 bonus and a $5,000 signing bonus but showed so little during camp that the 49ers abruptly changed their minds about him.
James led Boise State with three interceptions last season. Johnson led Georgia Southern receivers with 42 catches for 600 yards an three touchdowns. Levy started all 12 games last season on Connecticut’s offensive line.
