NT Ian Williams says he has no desire to return to the 49ers

Mar 9, 2017 at 1:33 PM--


Former San Francisco 49ers NT Ian Williams posted his thoughts on Twitter about possibly returning to the team. He said that he has no desire to do so and feels that he was treated poorly by the organization.


In the 49ers' defense, the team has a new regime in place and those responsible for Williams being "thrown to the curb" are no longer with the organization. Williams understands that and later clarified that he loves the 49ers fans and the new front office.


The 49ers waived Williams in October off of the reserve/non-football injury list. Williams was placed on the injury list last year at the end of July.

In March, Williams, who was about to become a free agent, agreed to a new five-year contract with the 49ers. That contract was believed to pay Williams between $5 and $6 million per year. However, when his availability for the 49ers' season opener in September came into question, that contract was replaced by a one-year deal.

Following a physical, it was determined that Williams' rehab from surgery on his left leg would require more time than originally believed. Prior to the extent of the injury becoming better known, Williams was considered one of the top interior defender free agents.


Williams missed 21 of 32 games from in 2013 and 2014 because of a leg fracture in each of the two seasons. He became a starter in 2014, but the fractured leg ended his season after nine games. He started all 16 games for the 49ers in 2015 and underwent a follow-up procedure upon completion of the season.

Williams joined the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame in 2011.

Jerry Rice says Trey Lance 'has all the tools' to succeed with 49ers

Chris Simms lacks confidence in San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance. The NBC Sports analyst recently stated that he wouldn't have drafted the player had the decision been his to make. "I see the potential. I get it," Simms recently said on his podcast, Chris Simms Unbuttoned. "I'm just not sure it's going to all come together." Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice is less pessimistic about the second-year quarterback's future. The 49ers legend sat down with Lance and discussed the 22-year-old's potential to be great and lead the Bay Area team to success. "I knew Trey was going to be special from the first day I talked to him," Rice said during an interview for Boardroom (h/t



49ers' George Kittle: 'Trent Williams is the best football player in the NFL'

Trent Williams' 97.8 overall Pro Football Focus grade from the 2021 regular season led the NFL. In fact, it was the highest-ever grade awarded by the analytics site. Now, some will criticize the grade, arguing that you can't consider an offensive tackle the best player in the league. Don't tell that to All-Pro tight end George Kittle, Williams' San Francisco 49ers teammate. "Trent Williams is the best football player in the NFL," Kittle declared Friday on The Pat McAfee Show (h/t NBC Sports Bay Area). "I don't care. You could talk to me about any



Peter King has 49ers at No. 10 in power rankings, predicts Garoppolo-Lance outcome

By David Bonilla

A year ago, Peter King of NBC Sports listed the San Francisco 49ers at No. 5 within his offseason power rankings. Head coach Kyle Shanahan's squad dropped five spots this offseason despite coming off an NFC Championship Game appearance. Why the drop from last year's position? For King, it has to do with some questions about the roster. Two of the most prominent offseason uncertainties can be found within the quarterback and wide receiver groups. While Jimmy Garoppolo helped guide the 49ers to their second NFC title appearance in three seasons, the team reportedly hopes to trade the veteran quarterback before Week 1. Whether they can or not remains to be seen.



Fred Warner believes Deebo Samuel 'loves the team' but Pelissero says 49ers, WR remain in 'standoff'

San Francisco 49ers star linebacker Fred Warner spoke with NFL Network's Tom Pelissero following the NFL's schedule release yesterday. The Pro Bowl and All-Pro defender was asked about his disgruntled teammate, wide receiver Deebo Samuel, who requested a trade this offseason. Samuel is eligible for a contract extension, but there have been no updates on that front. And the 49ers didn't grant his wish for a trade either. Warner told Pelissero that 49ers teammates, like quarterback Trey Lance and tight end George Kittle, have been in contact with Samuel since the trade request became public last month. Pelissero pressed Warner to reveal his level of confidence that Samuel is playing for the 49ers come Week 1 against the Chicago Bears. "I
