Former 49ers DL Quinton Dial announced retirement Thursday

This came out on Thursday, but it seems worth mentioning here on Niners Nation and that’s the news that former San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Quinton Dial announced his retirement via his Instagram page. The decision closes the book on a five year career in the NFL, four of which were spent with the 49ers.

A fifth-round selection in the 2013 NFL Draft, Dial was unable to start a full 16-game schedule during his time in the NFL. Despite finding himself in and out of the starting lineup during his time with the San Francisco 49ers he had a solid presence on the defensive side of the ball and great versatility.
