SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) The San Francisco 49ers have released offensive lineman Zane Beadles.
The 49ers also announced Monday that fourth-round defensive lineman Kentavius Street has signed his rookie contract.
Beadles was replaced as the starting left guard after one game last season because of the acquisition of Laken Tomlinson. Beadles then started the final four games of the season at right tackle.
GM John Lynch called Beadles a "consummate professional" and says he hopes his release in May gives him the opportunity to sign somewhere else.
Beadles started 21 games in two seasons with San Francisco. He hasn't missed a game in eight seasons with Denver, Jacksonville and the 49ers.
Street was drafted 128th overall and is expected to miss the season recovering from knee surgery.
