SANTA CLARA -- The 49ers waived rookie offensive lineman Jason Slowey, a sixth-round draft pick from Western Oregon, as teams were required to cut to the 75-player limit.Slowey saw limited action during the exhibition season, as the 49ers attempted to convert him to center. He missed some practices due to a leg injury and he slid further down the depth chart.The 49ers also waived wide receiver Joe Hastings, an undrafted free agent last season who remained on the practice squad and was promoted to the 53-man roster late in the season. Hastings sustained a hamstring injury on the second day of training camp and never practiced or played in an exhibition game.
