Isaiah Oliver, a seasoned cornerback, was released by the San Francisco 49ers on Friday.

Oliver, 27, signed a two-year, $6.75 million contract last March, but was cut after just one season. With the transaction, the 49ers freed up $2.4 million in cap space, according to Spotrac.

San Francisco started the week about $4.625 million below the ceiling on salaries.

Oliver recorded 67 tackles, one interception, and one fumble recovery in 17 regular-season games (six starts) for the 49ers. Throughout San Francisco’s three postseason games, he saw no defensive playing time; all 35 snaps were on special teams.

In 79 games (44 starts), Oliver has accumulated 270 tackles, three interceptions, three forced fumbles, and two sacks.
