49ers decline contract option on wide receiver Pierre Garcon
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Pierre Garcon will become a free agent after the San Francisco 49ers declined his contract option.
The team officially cut ties with Garcon on Thursday after paying him nearly $23 million out of the five-year, $47.5 million deal he signed in 2017.
The 32-year-old Garcon caught 64 passes for 786 yards and one touchdown in 16 games over two injury-plagued seasons with San Francisco.
