​After a disappointing 2018 campaign, the San Francisco 49ers come into the 2019 season with high hopes of a bounce-back year. 

In order to do that, however, they will certainly need to make roster changes in free agency. And on Friday, a big decision was made on the defensive line. 

Per a report, Cassius Marsh is OUT in San Francisco. 

​​This release comes after head coach ​Kyle Shanahan stated that you will need to be pretty good to "beat out" Marsh. 

Marsh had a productive year for the 49ers last year, which bodes well for his chances in free agency. In 16 games with the team (three of them starts), Marsh accumulated 5.5 sacks, 28 tackles and 14 quarterback hits. 

Still, with the 49ers trading for Kansas City Chiefs defensive end ​De​e Ford, along with having a high draft pick in a defensively rich draft, Marsh became expendable for the team which led to his release.

The ​49ers will look to make noise in the NFC West next season. Let's see if they can get it done.
