Former South Carolina QB Dylan Thompson Makes 49ers Practice Squad

It's that time of year when NFL teams begin trimming the fat to get down to a final 53-man roster and, for some, help keep childhood drams alive. 

Sunday afternoon, as players all around the country were being released, former South Carolina quarterback Dylan Thompson shared news via his Twitter account that he would remain part of the 49ers organization as a member of the practice squad. Thompson, who was an undrafted free agent, worked hard for this opportunity.

">@49ers as a member of the practice squad. Another step in the journey that Jesus is leading!

It's always good to see hard work pay off, and Thompson seems like a good kid. Good for him.
