Antoine Bethea asked for his release from 49ers

Mar 7, 2017 at 3:12 PM--


On Tuesday, the San Francisco 49ers announced the release of safety Antoine Bethea. Interestingly enough, it was Bethea who requested to be released from the team.

"I asked for my release," Bethea told Josina Anderson of ESPN. "I think it was a better fit for both parties. I want to take some time to explore my options."


The 49ers issued the following statement from general manager John Lynch following Bethea's release:

"Antoine is a true professional in every sense and I have a great deal of respect for the way he has gone about his business throughout his career. We would like to thank him for the positive impact he has had on this team both as a player and as a leader, on and off the field. We wish Antoine, and his family, great success in the future."

Bethea joined the 49ers in March of 2014. During his three seasons with the team, Bethea had 318 tackles, five interceptions, 15 passes defended, two sacks, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery.

Fred Warner trusts Shanahan and Lynch's vision for the 49ers, feels 2020 is the last losing season

By David Bonilla

There is so much uncertainty for the San Francisco 49ers as they embark into the 2021 offseason. Nearly 40 players are scheduled to become free agents, and the team is pressed up against a salary cap that is expected to drop from $198.2 million to a number that could be as low as $175 million. General manager John Lynch said this week that the 49ers are operating under the assumption that they will have $175 million to work with this year. Anything more would be a bonus. That means some tough decisions may be on the horizon, and the roster could look very different next season. Fred Warner, who will need a contract extension himself fairly soon, isn't too worried about the 49ers' future. After all, 2020's downfall had more to do with injuries than anything else.
