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

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.
