The San Francisco 49ers gave rookie RB Jarryd Hayne the boot this Halloween, as the Australian Rugby League star was waived this afternoon.
Hayne, who was by far the team’s most explosive player on the 49ers roster, had fumbling problems in the return game, but his upside was too good to be ignored.
In six games, Hayne touched the ball a total of 16 times including; 8 punts for 76 yards (37) and eight carries for 25 rushing yards.
Would anyone argue with me that Hayne was the team's most explosive player. Fun to watch. Fumbling was a problem but is Bush better?

With Hayne’s release, that opened the door for RB Kendall Gaskins who was promoted from the team’s practice squad.
