Check out 49ers' initial 53-man roster for 2022 season originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

It's official: The 49ers' initial 53-man roster is set.

Now that training camp is in the rearview mirror, those who made the cut can focus on San Francisco's Week 1 matchup against the Chicago Bears Sept. 11 at Soldier Field.

There were some surprise releases, countless no-brainers and a couple of feel-good roster additions the 49ers hope can help take them to the Super Bowl.

Plus, one very shocking return.

A source confirmed to NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco that tight end Tyler Kroft and defensive end Jordan Willis both will re-sign with the 49ers on Wednesday after being released ahead of Tuesday's cuts.
