Report: Seahawks land running back recently released by 49ers

In two seasons with the 49ers, he appeared in 14 games and rushed for 108 yards and one touchdown on 54 attempts. He caught 10 passes for 63 yards.

SANTA CLARA -- The 49ers on Thursday waived running back Mike Davis, a fourth-round draft pick in 2015, who ended last season at the bottom of the team’s depth chart, a league source confirmed to NBC Sports Bay Area.

Davis no longer has a place on the 49ers after the club in the past week acquired veteran running back Kapri Bibbs in a trade with the Denver Broncos, selected Utah’s Joe Williams in the fourth round of the draft, and signed undrafted rookie Matt Breida of Georgia Southern.

In two seasons with the 49ers, Davis appeared in 14 games and rushed for 108 yards and one touchdown on 54 attempts for a rushing average of 2.0 yards. He caught 10 passes for 63 yards. In his final two college seasons at South Carolina, Davis rushed for 2,165 yards and 20 touchdowns.

Davis was inactive for the final eight games of the season after struggling in the first half of the season.

In Week 17, when Carlos Hyde was out with a knee injury, the 49ers activated running back Raheem Mostert from the practice squad. Mostert suited up for the final game of the season.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported the 49ers attempted to trade Davis during the draft before opting to release him.

The 49ers promoted practice squad running back Raheem Mostert to the 53-man roster for the final game of the regular season, the team announced Saturday afternoon.

The 49ers placed center Marcus Martin on injured reserve to make room for Mostert on the roster. Martin was ruled out for the game with an ankle injury. He becomes the 19th player the 49ers have placed on injured reserve this season, not including nose tackle Ian Williams, who was released off injured reserve in October.

Mostert is expected to take the role of Mike Davis, who appeared to foreshadow a move with a post on social media.

“Guess I gotta work even harder,” Davis wrote Friday on his Twitter account.

Shaun Draughn and DuJuan Harris are the two other healthy running backs on the 49ers' roster. Carlos Hyde was placed on injured reserve this week with a knee injury.

Mostert, who spent the past four weeks on the practice squad, entered the NFL last season with the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free agent. He has also spent time with Miami, Baltimore, Cleveland, the New York Jets and Chicago.

He appeared in 11 games last season with three different teams. He played two games earlier this season with the Bears. He has never carried the ball in an NFL game, but he has averaged 27.9 yards on 19 kickoff returns.

Mostert (5-foot-10, 197 pounds) rushed for 529 yards and three touchdowns on 93 rushing attempts as a senior at Purdue in 2014.
