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.

For players, the strangeness of playing in empty stadiums could be a thing of the past. Defensive end Nick Bosa only got to play one game at Levi's Stadium last season before suffering a season-ending knee injury during Week 2. He caught up with 49ers team reporter Keiana Martin and shared that he hopes to see fans again in 2021. "It would mean a lot, really," Bosa said during a virtual one-on-one. "I only got one game at home without the fans, and it was really weird. I love to look back at the film and TV

Cornerback Richard Sherman remains available. The free agent doesn't know what his NFL future holds, has had teams reach out to him, and hasn't even ruled out a possible return to the San Francisco 49ers. "Obviously, a return to San Francisco isn't out of the cards," Sherman told ESPN's Stephen A. Smith. "I've had conversations with Seattle. I've had conversations with the Saints, the Raiders, and we've just got to wait to see how things play out." Things are on pause until the draft is complete. Sherman doesn't expect to see the interest increase until after that, as NFL teams look to add younger defenders on rookie contracts. The 49ers could select a cornerback on Day 2 of

Richard Sherman indicated on Friday that he hasn't ruled out a potential return to the San Francisco 49ers, the team with which he spent the last three seasons. The veteran cornerback remains a free agent and doesn't expect his market to heat up until after the draft.

That's because the incoming rookie got a call from the 49ers on Friday, learning that the team was making him a third-round pick. After being drafted, Thomas was asked about Sherman, and the inquiring reporter couldn't even finish her question before the excited defender interrupted with his
