The San Francisco 49ers announced that the team has tendered one-year contracts to restricted free agent running back Raheem Mostert and exclusive rights free agents linebacker Elijah Lee and defensive back Greg Mabin.

Additionally, the team exercised the 2019 contract options for fullback Kyle Juszczyk, defensive end Cassius Marsh, linebacker Dekoda Watson and cornerback K'Waun Williams.

The 49ers also officially announced that the team will decline the contract option for veteran wide receiver Pierre Garçon. News that the 49ers would not retain Garçon was first reported by Mike Garafolo of NFL Network on February 14. The move saves the team $4.48 million in salary cap space, per NBC Sports Bay Area.

Each of Garçon's two seasons with San Francisco was cut short as the receiver landed on injured reserve.
