49ers Sign RFA OT Garry Gilliam After Seahawks Decline To Match Offer Sheet

OT Garry Gilliam is switching NFC West teams. One day after Gilliam agreed to an offer sheet with the San Francisco 49ers, the Seattle Seahawks have elected to not match the offer sheet. 

The Seahawks had five days to match the offer for Gilliam, but didn't need all five to make their decision.

Gilliam was a part-time starter for Seattle, but failed to play well as part of a bad Seahawks offensive line. 

He'll likely serve as the swing tackle for the 49ers, behind Joe Staley and Trenton Brown. He could push Brown for the starting right tackle role, but $2.2 million is backup money. 

This is a developing story. Refresh for updates.
