49ers complete flurry of roster moves ahead of trade deadline

It’s already been a busy week for the 49ers as they continue their rebuild at a frantic pace.

Another high draft pick by former general manager Trent Baalke was jettisoned on Tuesday, when Rashard Robinson was dealt to the New York Jets in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the 2018 draft.

Robinson, a former fourth-round pick, was benched in Week 8 after struggling for most of the season. Pro Football Focus ranks him as the 104th best cornerback of the 114 in the league. He struggled to avoid penalties, committing nine so far this campaign — according to PFF.

In a separate move, the 49ers dropped Will Redmond — the team’s third-round pick in 2016, another Baalke selection.

Brian Hoyer was also let go after Jimmy Garoppolo passed his physical on Tuesday. It’s widely believed that the New England Patriots will take a look at Hoyer as Tom Brady is the only quarterback remaining on their roster after the trade.
