Raiders free-agent receiver Chaz Schilens is scheduled to visit the 49ers this week, a league source said.Schilens visited the Arizona Cardinals on Tuesday, the first day of free agency. He is also attracting attention from the New York Jets, according to the source.
He caught 23 passes for 271 yards and two touchdowns last season. Schilens, a four-year veteran, played in 15 games last season with five starts. In 44 career games, Schilens has 72 receptions for 902 yards and seven touchdowns.
Anquan Boldin owes the NFL some money.
The former 49ers wide receiver was fined $6,076 for throwing the football into the stands last Sunday near the end of the Lions' win over Washington.
Boldin tossed the ball into the crowd after his game-winning touchdown reception with 16 seconds remaining.
Through seven games this season, Boldin has registered 32 catches for 272 yards and four touchdowns.
The 36-year old played for the 49ers from 2013 to 2015.
The 49ers on Thursday released nose tackle Ian Williams off the reserve/non-football injury list with an injury settlement.
The move, which was disclosed on the NFL, daily transaction report, is a procedural move, according to sources. It allows the 49ers to provide Williams with more compensation than he would have received if he had remained on reserve/non-football injury for the entire season. The move does not preclude the 49ers from re-signing Williams in the future.
The 49ers originally agreed to a five-year contract extension with Williams in the offseason. However, the contract was amended to a one-year deal after he underwent a team physical after undergoing surgery on his left leg.
Williams, 26, is a five-year NFL veteran. He originally signed with the 49ers as an undrafted rookie from Notre Dame in 2011.
He played his first 16-game season in 2015. He ranked third on the 49ers with 85 total tackles, according to the stats compiled by the coaching staff.
Williams took over as the 49ers’ starting nose tackle in 2013 after the free-agent departure of Isaac Sopoaga.
But he started just 10 games over the next two seasons due to two fractures of his lower leg.
