Day was disruptive in Friday's practice, consistently beating his offensive line assignments and recording a tackle for a loss and a sack, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Day was claimed by the 49ers from the Jaguars at the tail end of the 2017 season. The 22-year-old recorded 18 tackles and a pair of sacks in a limited role. Day is currently one of the front runners to win a backup defensive tackle role in 2018.
Day was waived by the Jaguars over the weekend, as they were looking to make room on their roster for a few returning players. He had recorded just two tackles (one solo), one sack, and one pass defended across six games prior to his departure from Jacksonville. He will presumably help provide depth on the 49ers' defensive line.
The Jaguars released Day on Saturday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.
The Jaguars made a few roster moves to activate players coming off the IR-R, and Day was one of the casualties as a result. The 23-year-old will either revert to the Jaguars' practice squad or find a new opportunity.
