Seahawks will not match 49ers offer to restricted free agent Garry Gilliam

The San Francisco 49ers signed restricted free agent offensive lineman Garry Gilliam to a one-year deal, the team announced Tuesday. He has started 30 games over the last three seasons, a lot of them at right tackle.

Gilliam, a restricted free agent, was tendered at $1.797 million for the 2017 season last month by the Seahawks, though with none of the money guaranteed. He visited the 49ers last week and reportedly turned down a multi-year contract offer. The one-yeal deal is worth $2.2 million, according Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Richard Simmons hospitalized in California, battling severe indigestion
Simmons had reportedly been battling discomfort while eating for a few days and made a decision to go to the hospital on Monday. Earlier this month Mr Catalano announced Simmons had sealed a "merchandising, endorsements and licensing" business deal.

It doesn't appear the 49ers think very highly of the incoming offensive linemen available in the National Football League draft next week. And it took Seattle less than 24 hours to decide against matching San Francisco's offer, allowing Gilliam to become the latest player to join the 49ers. Seattle general manager John Schneider told Seattle-area reporters at the recent owners meetings that Germain Ifedi, the team's first-round draft pick a year ago, would move from right guard to right tackle this season. Seattle could also explore options in the draft to replace Gilliam.

Even if Gilliam doesn't earn a starting spot in 2016 with the 49ers, he'll provide quality play and depth on the line, especially if Brown falters or Staley is injured.

No significant chemical discharge from US Steel spill into Lake Michigan
Chicago's water remains safe to drink after a chemical spill in a tributary of Lake Michigan, Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Thursday. The resulting legal action against the utility-dramatized in the film Erin Brockovich-resulted in a $333-million settlement.

The Seahawks could still add a veteran - Sowell remains available as does longtime Denver standout left tackle Ryan Clady and former Seahawk Breno Giacomini, most recently with the Jets.

Gilliam's time as a starter with the Seahawks appeared to be coming to an end, anyway.
