Dobbs’ roster spot was expendable due to Glenn Dorsey’s expected return and a couple of young reserves on the roster.
Dobbs was active for six of the 49ers’ first eight games. His primary role was on special teams, but he was credited for 10 tackles in his reserve role on the defensive line.
He originally signed with the 49ers in 2011 as an undrafted rookie from Georgia.
One week ago, the Seahawks signed former 49ers fullback/defensive lineman Will Tukuafu.
Tukuafu was trimmed from the 49ers’ roster on Aug. 30 at the team’s initial cut to 53 players this season.
He was placed on injured reserve after sustaining a concussion in an exhibition game Aug. 24 against the San Diego Chargers. He was released after being cleared to return to action.
Tukuafu spent parts of the past four seasons with the 49ers.
The 49ers host the Seahawks on Thanksgiving night, and play in Seattle 17 days later.
