Gilliam, a restricted free agent (RFA), has accepted an offer sheet for a one-year deal from the San Francisco 49ers.

ESPN.com is reporting Gilliam's deal with the 49ers is for one-year at $2.2 million dollars with $1.4 million guaranteed.

Gilliam has started 30 games over the last three seasons, a lot of them at right tackle. In 2016, he started 13 regular-season games and both of Seattle's postseason games.

49ers insider Matt Maiocco recently tweeted the latest update on Gilliam.

Colon-Ortiz was allowed to stay in a small side room, partially-obscured from view, during his arraignment. Prosecutor Jeffrey Travers said Marcotte's iPhone was either turned off or disabled around 2.11pm.

Gilliam played tight end at Penn State until his senior year, when he asked to be converted to offensive tackle.

The Seahawks are on the clock if they want to retain the services of offensive lineman Garry Gilliam.

So what now at right tackle? It might be a mistake to assume this means Seattle will for sure go for an OL in the first round now given that the Seahawks also have other needs in areas in which this draft is stronger at the top. If Gilliam joins the 49ers, Seattle would most likely give Germain Ifedi a shot to replace him. Okung left the Seahawks for the Denver Broncos through free agency in the 2016 National Football League offseason.

The Seahawks are strapped for cap space, with less $10 million available, and decided against bringing Gilliam back after adding guard Oday Aboushi and tackle Luke Joeckel last month in free agency.
