The San Francisco 49ers have released defensive tackle Ian Williams. He leaves the team with an injury settlement.

He was placed on the reserve/non-football injury in July after suffering an ankle injury. The 26-year-old initially signed a five-year $26 million deal with the 49ers in March.

However, the injury caused him to be placed on the NFI list. That made the 49ers re-work his contract to a one-year deal worth $4 million.

He hasn’t been able to receive his full salary since being placed NFI.

With the injury settlement, it doesn’t indicate if Williams had a setback. He’ll now be a free agent and sign a deal with the other 31 teams.

The 49ers are reportedly still interested in keeping Williams — only after the season. He’ll have to wait at least three weeks, plus the length of the settlement, according to the NFL, before he can sign with any team.

Williams has been with the 49ers his entire career. He was a reserve in 2011-2013, before becoming a starter under former head coach Jim Harbaugh.

Last season, be started all 16 games for the first time in his career.

He’s started 26 of the 31 games he’s played in. He has two pass deflections and a forced fumble. He also has a fumble recovery and two sacks, along with 67 tackles in his career.
