The 49ers announced they will not pick up the option on Elvis Dumervil锟斤拷s contract, making him a free agent next week.
I want to thank Elvis for everything he contributed to our team last year both on the field and throughout our building, 49ers General Manager John Lynch said.

For him, much of that was based on potential – and probably unrealistic expectations.
