49ers Releasing WR Torrey Smith – The Niners have informed wide receiver Torrey Smith of his forthcoming release, according to sources. Smith signed a five-year, $40 million contract with the 49ers in 2015, but his production in San Francisco hasn’t come close to what it was with the Baltimore Ravens. In two seasons with the Niners, Smith had 53 catches for 930 yards and seven touchdowns in 28 games. He led the NFL in 2015 by gaining 20.1 yards per reception. Smith, who turned 28 in January, was scheduled to count $9.475 million against the salary cap in 2017, though the Niners will save about half of that because the remaining portion of his $8 million signing bonus will now accelerate to count toward this year’s cap.

Chargers To Release Starting OL Fluker – The Los Angeles Chargers will release starting offensive lineman D.J. Fluker according to sources. Fluker, 25, was a first-round draft choice in 2013, when the Chargers selected the former Alabama star with the 11th overall pick. The 6-foot-5, 339-pound Fluker was scheduled to make $8.821 million in 2017, which would have been the final year of his rookie deal. The Chargers will save the full amount on their salary cap.
