The San Francisco 49ers announced Friday that they released veteran cornerback Isaiah Oliver.

Oliver, 27, was released after one season of the two-year, $6.75 million deal he signed last March. According to Spotrac, the 49ers cleared $2.4 million of cap space with the move.

San Francisco began Friday just $4.625 million under the salary cap.

Oliver played in 17 regular-season games (six starts) for the 49ers and had 67 tackles, one interception and one fumble recovery. He didn’t see any playing time on defense during San Francisco’s three postseason games with all 35 snaps coming on special teams.

Oliver was a second-round draft pick by the Atlanta Falcons in 2018 and spent five seasons with the franchise. He started 38 of 62 games played for Atlanta before leaving as a free agent following the 2022 season.

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