Williams, 32, was set to hit free agency at 4 p.m. EDT Wednesday.

The eight-time Pro Bowl selection joined the 49ers in an April 25 trade from the Washington Football Team. He started 14 games last season for San Francisco. Williams spent the first nine years of his career with Washington.

The star lineman also hinted that the 49ers could be close to signing free agent center Alex Mack. Williams posted a photo of himself with Mack -- with both players in 49ers uniforms -- Wednesday on Instagram.

Sources told NFL Network that the 49ers are expected to sign the former Atlanta Falcons center.
