The San Francisco 49ers announced on Saturday that they have released CB Nate Clements.
“The 49ers organization greatly appreciates Nate’s efforts as a 49er,” said 49ers General Manager Trent Baalke. “Nate is a class act, and a tough competitor, who has given a lot of himself over the past four years. We wish him, and his family, all the best.”
Clements joined the 49ers in 2007 and went on to play in 54 games (53 starts) with the club, notching 309 tackles, 10 interceptions, seven forced fumbles, two sacks and 52 passes defensed. A 2004 Pro Bowl selection, he has played in 150 career games (144 starts) tallying 832 tackles, 33 interceptions, 20 forced fumbles, six fumble recoveries, 3.5 sacks and 123 passes defensed, since being drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the first round of the 2001 NFL Draft.
