49ers won’t exercise Joshua Garnett’s fifth-year option, per report

May 2, 2019 at 7:08 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers won't exercise guard Joshua Garnett's fifth-year option, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. That makes the upcoming season the final one of his four-year rookie contract.


Garnett is 25 years old.

The 49ers made Garnett, who played college football at Stanford, the No. 28 overall selection in 2016. He has 22 game appearances and 11 starts through his three NFL seasons.

Garnett did not play in 2017 after landing on injured reserve with a knee injury just before the start of the season. He appeared in seven games and played in just 59 offensive snaps in 2018, according to Pro Football Focus. Starter Mike Person logged 1,000 offensive snaps.

Garnett was part of the same draft class as defensive tackle DeForest Buckner. San Francisco exercised Buckner's fifth-year option on April 24.

Raiders likely to interview 49ers' DeMeco Ryans after NFC Championship Game, per report

Defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans' stock is rising, especially after helping knock off the top-seeded Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field this past weekend. Even though he is a first-year coordinator, Ryans is a candidate for multiple NFL head-coaching vacancies. The Minnesota Vikings interviewed him on Sunday. The Las Vegas Raiders are also interested. That interview, however, probably won't come this week. ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that the Raiders are willing to wait until after Sunday's NFC Championship Game matchup between Ryans' 49ers and the Los Angeles Rams. "That was the working expectation after Ryans' interview with Vikings on Sunday. Las Vegas not in [a] major rush," Fowler tweeted out on Monday

Trent Williams missed the regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams because of an elbow injury. The San Francisco 49ers tackle intends to be back on the field with his teammates for Sunday's playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys. Williams spoke with reporters after Thursday's practice and provided some details on the injury that forced him to cheer from the sidelines this past weekend. The good news is that Williams is feeling better than he did last week, and that bodes well for his availability on Sunday. "The elbow is doing good," Williams said. "It's made a lot of improvement over the past week or so. Yeah, I practiced today. It felt pretty good. I chose to go with the tape (versus a brace). I'm not a huge fan of the brace. I went with the tape

Fred Warner gave the San Francisco 49ers and their fans a bit of a scare when he suffered an ankle injury against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, but he says he's feeling confident in his availability for Saturday night's Divisional Playoff game between the 49ers and Green Bay Packers. Warner fell to the turf in visible pain during the fourth quarter of the 49ers' 23-17 Wild Card win over the Cowboys and at the time was declared questionable to return to the game. But he let fans know on social media Monday that he was feeling well, and on Tuesday he explained why he has optimism about his

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters ahead of Wednesday's practice and said that tackle Trent Williams and running back Elijah Mitchell will not participate. This week, the 49ers are holding three full practices as they prepare to play the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship Game. Williams is dealing with the ankle injury suffered on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. Mitchell has been bothered by a knee injury. Shanahan added that Williams is again determined to play, and the coach believes that is a possibility. "I haven't seen Trent yet today," Shanahan said. "I'll see him here in a little bit when we go out to the field, but Trent's the same as he was that game (Week 18 vs. Rams). In Trent's mind, there's no
