49ers personnel update

Where the 49ers stand personnel-wise after the first full week of free agency, with facts and figures on all players who have been signed.

FRANCHISE PLAYER: None

TRANSITION PLAYER: None

UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS
--- DT Anthony Adams does not fit the style of defense the 49ers hope to play. Team will make no effort to re-sign him after significant drop in playing time.
--- S Deke Cooper was added to the roster for final two games of season, but does not figure to return. .
--- LB Jay Foreman was a late-season addition who injured a knee in his second game. Could return to fight for a roster spot.
--- FB Chris Hetherington is a vested veteran who saw no action on offense after losing his starting job to Moran Norris in the third week. Does not figure to return.
--- LB Hannibal Navies saw significant action after signing for the final six games, including three starts. There is no harm in bringing him back to see if he can fit in.
--- LB T.J. Slaughter's finger surgery ended his season in November. He could return to compete for a roster spot.
--- S Chad Williams saw plenty of action in the team's sub packages, and there's a good chance he'll be back to compete for a roster spot.

UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS (not tendered offers)
---S Mike Adams (not tendered as RFA) turned down an extension early in the season, then lost his starting job.
--- LB Andre Torrey (not tendered as ERFA) sustained torn ACL in training camp and his return this season is in question.
