The San Francisco 49ers cut wide receiver Brandon Carswell.

He was cut after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee last year.

Carswell played collegiately at USC.

He was in the Oakland Raiders' training camp in 2012.

The 49ers are exploring the possibility of bringing in wide receiver Brandon Lloyd, according to Comcast Sportsnet Bay Area. He didn't play last year.
