Torrey Smith thanks the Niner Faithful following news of his release

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!!!

In 2016, Smith had the worst statistical season of his six-year career. He caught just 20 passes for 267 yards and three touchdowns. Each of the three statistics were career lows. Smith finished the season on the injured reserve list after suffering a concussion on December 11 against the New York Jets.

Smith spent two seasons with the 49ers following four in Baltimore, including being part of the Super Bowl XLVII team that beat the 49ers. Over the past two seasons, Smith had 53 receptions for 930 yards and seven touchdowns through 28 games.

New San Francisco 49ers defensive end Ezekiel Ansah had been practicing this week while wearing a No. 98 jersey. That number, of course, belongs to defensive end Ronald Blair, who remains on the physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) list with a knee injury. That was only temporary. When Ansah takes the field on Sunday against the New York Giants, the veteran pass rusher will be wearing the same jersey number he wore in Detroit and Seattle — 94. But wait a minute — that number belongs to former first-round pick Solomon Thomas, who played as recently as this past weekend. It turns out that Thomas, who suffered a season-ending ACL injury, gave Ansah his blessing. Head coach Kyle Shanahan explained that Ansah initially had to wear

Kyle Shanahan didn't sound too concerned about Jordan Reed's injury after the San Francisco 49ers' 36-9 victory over the New York Giants. He was optimistic that his tight end didn't suffer any long-term damage, noting that the 49ers would learn more tomorrow. Reed appeared to roll his ankle during the first quarter but returned in the second. The 49ers later ruled the tight end out after the television broadcast showed the team's medical staff examining Reed's left knee and leg. Shanahan said Reed indeed sustained ankle and knee injuries. Cornerback Emmanuel Moseley was ruled out with a concussion after a collision in the second quarter with safety Jaquiski Tartt as the two defenders attempted to tackle Giants quarterback Daniel
