49ers host Seahawks restricted free agent OT Garry Gilliam

Apr 13, 2017 at 2:04 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers brought in Seattle Seahawks restricted free agent tackle Garry Gilliam for a visit on Thursday, per Field Yates of ESPN.


In March, the Seahawks gave an original round tender to Gilliam at a cost of about $1.8 million in order to bring him back in 2017. Gilliam was an originally signed as an undrafted free agent in 2014. That means that if the 49ers were to sign him, they would not need to give Seattle a draft pick as compensation. However, Seattle would have the ability to match any offer by the 49ers.

Gilliam started 13 of the 14 games he played in for the Seahawks last season. While he was a favorite in training camp to take the place of departed left tackle Russell Okung, Gilliam struggled and was benched in November for two games before returning to the starting lineup in December. He played at right tackle following a training camp injury to J'Marcus Webb.

In three seasons with Seattle, Gilliam has played in 44 regular season games while starting 30.

Gilliam played college football at Penn State and spent most of his years there as a tight end. He converted to an offensive tackle for his senior year and started at the position for the Nittany Lions.
