Mar 6, 2017 at 3:39 PM--


On Monday, WR Torrey Smith was informed by the San Francisco 49ers that he will be released. News of the release was first reported by former NFL receiver Steve Smith.

Torrey Smith, who was with the team for just two seasons, created a post on Instagram thanking the Niner Faithful. "I'd like to apologize to the fans because you didn't get to see me at my best," Smith wrote in the post.

"Jed keep up the great work I know how important it is to you to succeed," Smith continued. "All the best to my boys and the new regime."

I would like to say thank you to the @49ers for allowing me to wear red and gold for the last 2 seasons. It didn't go the way we wanted it to but I'm thankful for the relationships I was able to build. I had a great time in the locker room with my teammates and equipment staff. I'd like to apologize to the fans because you didn't get to see me at my best. Regardless of what other may think, I believe the 49ers organization is first class and is heading in the right direction. I would like to say thanks to my man Dan...Bob..and all of the PR staff for showing love to my family. Furgie, the training staff and doctors for taking care of me. The community relations team is arguably the best in the country! I appreciate you all for allowing us to be a part of it and I will continue to support any way I can...it's a million other folks I need to thank...from Hannah to Joanne..T Lloyd and Lil Kym...but I don't have enough time. Jed keep up the great work I know how important it is to you to succeed. All the best to my boys and the new regime. One final shoutout to the janitors and the chef's y'all were always great to me. Good luck next year. Stay Blessed!!!
