The San Francisco 49ers waived defensive back Trovon Reed, the team announced Tuesday.

Reed was signed to the 49ers’ practice squad in December. It was his fifth different organization since signing with the Los Angeles Rams in August 2015.

San Francisco waived Reed five months after signing him to a reserve/future contract on Jan. 2.

The former Auburn product saw his only NFL action during the 2016 season with the then-San Diego Chargers. Reed appeared in six games, making one start, and recorded a pair of interceptions and 12 tackles.
