GM Trent Baalke had this to say regarding Akers…[quote]The 49ers would like to thank David for his service, dedication and leadership over the past two years. He is a true professional who represented himself and this organization with class. We wish him, and his family, all the best[/quote]
We would like to also express our thanks to Akers. He kept us and won us many games during that 2011 season and we’ll never forget his 63 yarder against the Packers. Thank you Mr. Akers.
