Sanu, 31, only caught one pass for 9 yards as a 49er. He played 13 snaps against the New York Jets, 20 against the New York Giants and then a lowly seven in San Francisco's loss Sunday to the Philadelphia Eagles.

The 49ers are becoming much more healthy at receiver as Deebo Samuel returned from the injured reserve against the Eagles, and Richie James should soon be back on the field as well. Rookie Brandon Aiyuk also has established himself as a top target the past two games.
Sanu agreed to a one-year contract with the 49ers on Sept. 15. His tenure on the team lasted just three weeks.
