Third-string quarterback Nate Davis made the San Francisco 49ers' 53-man roster despite coach Mike Singletary's criticisms during training camp and hints the 2009 fifth-round pick was on the bubble.

      The 49ers released 22 players on Friday, but all their 2010 draft picks made the cut. Singletary said after Thursday night's 17-14 preseason win over San Diego that Davis would be a big part of roster discussions Friday -- but when the team let running back Michael Robinson go it didn't have another option at No. 3 quarterback aside from Davis.
Some of the released players will be signed to the practice squad while others might get jobs with other teams or re-sign.
