The 49ers waived Delaire on Monday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
The move came to make room for tight end Ross Dwelley on the 53-man roster. Delaire was just promoted from the active roster prior to Week 5's game but he didn't suit up. Expect Delaire to return to the 49ers' practice squad if he goes unclaimed.
Delaire hasn't played a game since the 2016 season with Carolina, when he made six tackles and one sack in six games. It's unlikely he sees much playing time behind Solomon Thomas and Arik Armstead at defensive end.
Delaire (knee) worked out for the Cowboys on Friday, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.
Delaire spent the entire 2017 season rehabbing a torn ACL he sustained last July with the Panthers. He was reportedly close to signing with the Eagles last December but wasn't able to pass his physical. Should he sign with the Cowboys, Delaire likely wouldn't be anything more than a rotational defensive end.
