49ers waive center Marcus Martin

Mar 8, 2017 at 10:11 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers have announced that they have waived center Marcus Martin. Daniel Kilgore had been the 49ers' starting center, but injuries to both Kilgore and Martin last year against the Atlanta Falcons forced free agent acquisition Zane Beadles into the position.

Martin was the first of the 49ers' three third-round draft picks in the 2014 NFL Draft. He played college football for the University of Southern California. Martin appeared in 26 games, starting 24, on the offensive line in three seasons with the team. Last season, he played in five games, starting two, before being placed on the injured reserve List on December 31, 2016.

Martin is the third player with whom the 49ers have parted ways over the past two days. On Tuesday, the team announced the releases of WR Torrey Smith and S Antoine Bethea. The 49ers are expected to have well over $100 million in cap space with the roster moves and are looking to strike early in free agency with WR Pierre Garcon reportedly set to be an early signing following the start of the new league year on Thursday at 1 p.m. Pacific.

After a difficult loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football, the San Francisco 49ers are back for their second straight home game at Levi's Stadium versus another potential NFC contender in the Seattle Seahawks. The Niners lost the bout with the Packers in a heartbreaking fashion in a game that was decided in the final minute of play. The beginning of the game seemed like it was going to be a dominant, statement victory for Green Bay as they got off to a 17-0 lead by the time one minute was remaining in the first half. However, from there, the 49ers' offense led a comeback all the way to the end of the game when quarterback Jimmy Garapolo threw a touchdown pass to fullback Kyle Juscyk to make the score 28-27 with 37 seconds left. Unfortunately for San Fransisco,

It sounds like we can expect the San Francisco 49ers star tight end to be out there for the team's first divisional matchup of the season. Despite being listed as "questionable" for the game, per multiple reports, Kittle is expected to be on the field at Levi's Stadium this afternoon when the Niners host the Seattle Seahawks. "While officially a game-time decision, SF has optimism that Kittle will be correct," notes Ian Rapoport of NFL
