Indeed, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports that the 49ers are not expected to exercise the 2019 option on the offensive guard. The team has until Thursday to make a final decision, and the team can rescind the option before going into effect next year, barring injury.
But Tomlinson would cost the 49ers $9.6 million for the 2019 season, and he has yet to live up to being the 28th overall pick in 2015.
The Lions traded him to the 49ers for a 2019 fifth-round pick. Tomlinson, 26, started 15 games at left guard for the 49ers last season.
