Pierre Gar莽on’s time with the 49ers will come to an end on March 13.A report in February indicated that the 49ers would decline their option on the veteran wideout’s contract for the 2019 season. The 49ers confirmed it on Thursday.Gar莽on signed a five-year Womens Fred Warner Jersey
, $47.5 million deal with the Niners in 2017, but injuries have limited him to 16 games over his two seasons with the team. He’s had 64 catches for 786 yards and a touchdown when he has been able to get on the field and it’s not hard to see why the 49ers opted not to pay $6 million to see if Gar莽on could do better in 2019.The 49ers announced several other moves along with the Gar莽on decision.They have picked up the options on fullback Kyle Juszczyk, defensive lineman Cassius Marsh, linebacker Dekoda Watson and cornerback K鈥橶aun Williams for the 2019 season. Juszczyk made his third Pro Bowl team last season and all were regulars in the lineup when healthy.Finally, the 49ers have tendered running back Raheem Mostert as a restricted free agent and tendered exclusive rights free agents linebacker Elijah Lee and defensive end Greg Mabin. Mostert ran 34 times for 261 yards and a touchdown before landing on injured reserve in early November. The San Francisco 49ers pass rush finally broke through last week against the Oakland Raiders, taking down Derek Carr seven times. Cassius Marsh led the way with 2.5 sacks, Dekoda Watson had 1.5 sacks in his return from injured reserve, and Solomon Thomas, Ronald Blair, and DeForest Buckner each had a sack. The 49ers defense dominated the game primarily due to the considerable pass rush.Week 10 brings a matchup with the New York Giants that presents a huge opportunity for the pass rush to find more success. Eli Manning has been sacked a league-high 31 times. Football Outsiders ranks the team’s adjusted sack rate 26th in the league. The Giants rank eighth worst with an 8.9 percent sacks-per-dropback ratio.The 49ers enter this week tied for seventh in the NFL with 24 sacks. They rank eighth in Football Outsiders adjusted sack rate statistic. They ranked fairly well even before their seven sack performance Bradley Pinion Jersey
, but they jumped with that effort.Can they build on it against the Giants? I asked Big Blue View editor Ed Valentine his thoughts on the Giants pass protection. At times it seems like Eli Manning works his way into sacks, but analytics suggest the Giants offensive line is pretty bad as well. Pro Football Focus tracks time in pocket stats, and Manning has the 11th shortest average time to throw, the seventh fastest time to getting sacked, and eighth shortest average time in the pocket.I asked Ed what explains Manning leading the NFL in sacks.The Giants are a mess right now, but their passing attack remains dangerous with Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard regular threats on the outside and Saquon Barkley among the best pass-catching running backs in the league. OBJ and Shepard will be a particularly difficult task for the 49ers secondary, and so the key will be getting consistent pressure on Manning. If the pass rush can perform similarly to what we saw last week against Oakland, the 49ers will be in a strong position to win this game.
