Sure enough, Torrey Smith took to Instagram later Monday to post a long "thank you" message to Niners fans after his reported release.

The 49ers signed Smith to a five-year, $40 million contract in 2015, but his production with the 49ers did not match what he accomplished with the Baltimore Ravens.

Torrey Smith will be cut by the 49ers, according to SteveSmith.

The decorated wide receiver landed a job as an NFL Media analyst this offseason after announcing his retirement from football in January. Smith had 930 yards and seven touchdowns in two 49ers seasons, though it's hard to quantify how much awful quarterback play led to that.

At the same time, there will be a free PvP expansion, where you will be able to fight against other players. However, Ubisoft has recently shared an infographic showing the numbers related to the beta of the game.

With plenty of tread left on his tires, Smith will likely find another team to play for in the upcoming season.

Now, just months into his retirement, Smith Sr. has suddenly become a bona fide NFL Insider - already with two big scoops under his belt.

Over the weekend, the 49ers elected to re-sign Kerley and followed it up by cutting ties with the former Terp. He compiled 930 yards and seven touchdowns on 53 receptions in 23 games. He finished his collegiate career ranked third in school history with 152 receptions and second with 2,215 yards, while adding 19 touchdowns in three seasons. "The way I watch it from afar, he (Shanahan) tailors it to people's strengths, which is always a plus".

Had he remained with the 49ers, Smith was due a $6.5 million salary with a $1.5 million in roster and workout bonus money. "We'll see what happens".
