The San Francisco 49ers will release offensive lineman Mike Person today, according to a Twee by ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter.

The move comes after the former Montana State Bobcat started at right guard in the Super Bowl for the 49ers. Person, a Glendive native with deep family ties to Butte, will now be a free agent, free to sign with any team.

Person, 31, is the son of Jim Person, a former Montana Tech star football player, and the late Shelley (Lowney) Person, a 1973 Butte Central graduate.

Since being drafted by the 49ers in the seventh round of the 2011 NFL Draft, Person bounced around the NFL. The three-year starter with the Bobcats had stops in Indianapolis (twice), Seattle, St. Louis, Atlanta and Kansas City before rejoining the 49ers before the 2018 season.

He signed a three-year, $9 million contract with the 49ers in March of last year.

Person was the subject of a Butte Sports column the week before the 49ers played Kansas City in the Super Bowl.
