The San Francisco 49ers have announced the signing of OL Andrew Gardner to a one-year deal. To make room on the roster, the team waived OL Josh Allen.

Gardner was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the sixth round of the 2009 NFL Draft. Following his stint with Miami (2009-10), where he appeared in 27 games and started 11, he has also spent time with the Baltimore Ravens (2010), Minnesota Vikings (2010), Cincinnati Bengals (2010-11), Houston Texans (2011-13) and Philadelphia Eagles (2014-15).

During his time in Philadelphia, where Chip Kelly was his head coach, Gardner appeared in 19 games and started 11. After spending training camp with the Eagles, he was released by the team on August 28.

Allen had been claimed off of waivers from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on December 12. He was inactive against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.

"The deal would have involved multiple draft picks, according to sources," Schefter wrote, "but was disrupted by the surgery to Garoppolo's throwing shoulder, which prompted the Commanders to move on from their

The sooner everyone moves on from the 49ers' dreadful 11-10 loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday night the better. But first, let's tie up some loose ends to come from Sunday's postgame interviews. Much of the postgame discussion surrounded the performance of the 49ers' offense, which was poor enough to squander a defensive effort that held the Broncos' offense to just nine points. But there was also some honesty regarding the loss of left tackle Trent Williams, some insight from head coach Kyle Shanahan on why he declined an important first half penalty, and much more.
