The San Francisco 49ers announced that they have released kicker David Akers.
"The 49ers would like to thank David for his service, dedication and leadership over the past two years," said 49ers general manager Trent Baalke. "He is a true professional who represented himself and this organization with class. We wish him, and his family, all the best."
Akers, 38, struggled in the regular season last year, converting on 69 percent of his attempts, his lowest since 1999, when he was a member of the Philadelphia Eagles.
