49ers lose Larry Grant to Rams

As the season draws to a close, bad teams start reshuffling the bottom of their lineups in the hopes of finding a talented player or two that could help next season. The Dolphins did so last year when they plucked linebacker Mark Washington from the 49ers' practice squad. The Rams did it this year with Larry Grant, the 49ers' seventh-round pick in the draft. Grant, who played high school briefly in Sacramento, was originally drafted as a "Ted" linebacker but the 49ers eventually moved him to their "Mike" spot. He was the only one of the team's six draft picks who did not make the final roster. The 49ers have yet to fill the opening on the practice squad.
