ESPN REPORT: Just In San Francisco 49ers confirm the departure of another top experienced star

49ers Finalize Roster Decision, Part Ways with $6.75 Million Cornerback

In the aftermath of a closely contested Super Bowl defeat, the San Francisco 49ers are wasting no time in preparing for a comeback in the upcoming season. The initial steps involve fine-tuning their roster, with the recent decision to release cornerback Isaiah Oliver, as announced on the 49ers’ official website.

Originally selected in the second round of the 2018 NFL draft, Oliver had spent his entire career with the Atlanta Falcons before joining the 49ers last year. Throughout the 2023-24 season, the 27-year-old showcased his skills in 17 games, amassing a total of 67 tackles (48 solo and 19 assisted), two passes defended, and one interception.

Despite his regular-season contributions, Oliver remained inactive during the postseason, only participating in 35 special teams snaps. The cornerback had just completed the first year of a two-year, $6,750,000 deal with the 49ers before being released.


Looking ahead, the 49ers enter the current offseason with optimism surrounding their core lineup. Notably, the list of San Francisco’s free agents lacks high-priority players, allowing the team to retain key names for the upcoming season.

However, recognizing areas for improvement, the 49ers may focus on addressing concerns, particularly the offensive line’s performance. With Brock Purdy in mind, bolstering pass protection becomes crucial, as the team ranked 26th in this aspect during the past season. Additionally, enhancing the cornerback rotation is seen as a potential strategy to elevate the team’s performance in the 2024 campaign.

In conclusion, the 49ers’ moves during free agency and other offseason decisions will undoubtedly influence their journey back to the grand stage in the upcoming year.
