Training camp is a time of excitement for football fans everywhere, but several San Francisco 49ers players will be feeling little more than pressure to keep their current jobs.
Unexpected camp casualties are a part of every team's training camp, especially on a roster with plenty of talent to fit into 53 roster spots. From underperforming rookies to increasingly expensive veterans, there are bound to be a few surprising cuts in this year's camps.
Veterans are particularly on the hot seat in today's NFL, where the most recent collective bargaining agreement makes cheaper rookies far easier to keep. These aging Niners stars will likely survive throughout most of the preseason, but the final cuts will leave some of these old favorites off the roster.
So who are fighting for their jobs at the expense of past success? These 49ers vets will surely be looking over their shoulder as practices get underway.
