“We would like to thank Garry for his contributions to the team the last two seasons,” said 49ers General Manager John Lynch. “He filled in admirably when called upon and was a consummate teammate. We wish him and his family all the best.”

Gilliam (6-5, 305) originally signed with San Francisco as a free agent on April 19, 2017. He appeared in 24 games (one start) over the past two seasons, including each of the team’s 16 games in 2018.
