  • The Rams claimed Purcell off waivers Wednesday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Purcell spent his first three seasons in the league with the 49ers after joining the team as an undrafted free agent. During the 2016 campaign, Purcell played in 15 games (five starts), tallying 26 tackles and a forced fumble. After being waived by the 49ers earlier in the week, Purcell will now join the Rams and aim to win a roster spot as a backup along the defensive line.

    By RotoWire Staff

    The 49ers released Purcell on Tuesday. After playing in just 10 games during his first two seasons with the 49ers, Purcell participated in 15 contests during the 2016 campaign. He tallied 26 tackles and a forced fumble on the year. The Wyoming product was tendered to a one-year contract with the team in March, but it appears the 49ers have decided to go in a different direction.

  • Purcell, an exclusive-rights free agent, was tendered to a one-year contract by the 49ers. Purcell appeared in 15 games for the 49ers last season, starting five of them, and tallied 26 total tackles and one forced fumble. He'll likely have to settle for a rotational role once again in 2017 given the team's recent acquisition of Earl Mitchell.

  • 49ers' Mike Purcell: Starts at nose tackle Week 1
    By RotoWire Staff

    Purcell was listed as the starting nose tackle on the 49ers' unofficial depth chart that was released Tuesday. Purcell got the surprising nod as a starter over upstart rookie DeForest Buckner. He won't provide a whole lot of value outside of a handful of tackles as a nose tackle in a 3-4 defense. Purcell figures to start until Glenn Dorsey (knee) is healthy enough to return or the aforementioned Buckner gets elevated into the starting lineup.
