Kyle Williams on his way out of San Francisco

Good luck getting 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh to talk about Kyle Williams now.

According to multiple reports, the 49ers are releasing the receiver/return man today.

Williams had lost his return duties to running back LaMichael James, and with Mario Manningham back and Michael Crabtree hopeful of returning, his role in the offense was shrinking.

He’ll be best remembered for his pair of miscues in the 2011 NFC Championship Game, which allowed the Giants to go onto the Super Bowl.
