Ian Williams takes shot at former 49ers front office

Nose tackle Ian Williams has spent his entire five-year NFL career with the 49ers, but it's unclear what his future holds.

The 27-year-old missed all of last season as he rehabbed from ankle surgery and was released by the 49ers in October with an injury settlement. 

Williams responded to a handful of fan questions on Twitter Thursday. It's clear he's concerned with his health, and he seemed to take a shot at the fomer 49ers front office.

"The way I was thrown to the curb, in my time of need. I wouldn't want to come back & play for that as much as I want to be back w/ my Dline," Williams wrote, responding to a question about his thoughts on returning to the 49ers.

Still, he had plenty of love for his teammates, the fans, and the new front office.

"Love the fans and the new front office. Just worrying about being able to run around with my kids when I'm older."
