The 49ers released receiver Antonio Bryant on Thursday, less than a week after coach Mike Nolan met with him face-to-face in Indianapolis to discuss his situation.

A source familiar with Bryant's contract said the signing bonus he received from the 49ers last year as a free agent was tied to how many games Bryant was active. His signing bonus was reported in league documents as $4 million, but he will count only $800,000 against this year cap. Therefore, the 49ers will save about $1.5 million in cap room with the decision to part ways with Bryant.

He's a bit of a head case, but he's young and talented. Who knows maybe Herm could straighten him out.

The 49ers are going to be going hard after WRs this offseason.

I wouldn't be surprised to see them get Joey Porter, Adalius Thomas, Nate Clemens, Leonard Davis and Donte Stallworth.

They have TONS of money.

Bryant is a team cancer. Pass.

Won't happen.

First of all, the guy will be serving a suspension at the start of next year for drunk driving/resisting arrest. Think that would send a good message to Jared Allen and the fans, about what we think about that kind of behavior?

Secondly, the guy is on his third or fourth team in about 5 years, he can't get along with any coaches, teammates dislike him...

This is the last guy I would want on my football team. I know he made 40 (count 'em) receptions last year, but no thanks.

Bryant is a #2 receiver masquerading as a #1 at best.

Lets pick him up. On the cheap, that is King Carls way. Our WR core is almost the sh*t. We have to start doing something.

I'd honestly take a flyer on him. Herm is good at straightening guys out.
