The San Francisco 49ers have release offensive lineman Garry Gilliam on Wednesday. He spent two seasons with the franchise. 

“We would like to thank Garry for his contributions to the team the last two seasons,” 49ers general manager John Lynch said. “He filled in admirably when called upon and was a consummate teammate. We wish him and his family all the best.”


By making the move today, the 49ers are saving a little more than $5 million in 2019 cap savings. 

Gilliam was expected to make $4.5 million for the 2019 season. Before the 2018 season, he signed a two-year, $7.75 million deal. 

Before the 2017 season, he had signed a one-year, $2.2 million deal. 

Gilliam is now free to sign with whomever he wants. He will be signing with his third NFL team when he does sign a new deal. 

Before signing with the 49ers, he spent his first three seasons with the Seattle Seahawks. He was undrafted in the 2014 NFL Draft, before signing with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent.
