According to Adam Caplan of TheSidelineView.com, the San Francisco 49ers are expected to release kicker David Akers.
#49ers are expected to release K David Akers before free agency starts, per source.

This doesn’t come as a surprise after how much Akers struggled late last season. I’m sure the 49ers will look for a replacement in free agency or through the draft, since they do have 15 picks.
