Garland agreed Wednesday with the 49ers on a one-year, $2.25 million contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Garland served as a backup center for the 49ers last season, and he'll likely fill a similar role again in 2020. The veteran also boasts the versatility to slot in at guard as needed.
Garland signed a one-year contract with the 49ers on Tuesday.
Garland appeared in 46 games for Atlanta over the past three seasons, starting nine contests. He could compete for a starting role in San Francisco or at worst serve as quality depth along the offensive line.
The Falcons informed Garland this week that they don't intend to re-sign him during the offseason, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Garland has played in 30 games for Atlanta over the past two seasons, starting seven of them. He apparently wasn't deemed to be a fit in new offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter's offensive system, so the 30-year-old looks poised to test his luck elsewhere upon hitting free agency March 13.
Garland (back) was a full go for Thursday's practice after being limited during Wednesday's session, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Garland appears on track to be active Sunday against Arizona, but he's been benched in favor of Zane Beadles over the past two weeks due to ineffective play. The offensive line has struggled to open up running lanes all season (81.2 rushing yards per game rank 32nd), with Garland himself being identified by the coaching staff as an unstable option at right guard filling in for the injured Brandon Fusco. He'll likely serve as a backup again in Week 15 when the Falcons face a Cardinals defense that ranks tied for 30th at stopping the run, with 139.5 yards allowed per game on the ground.
Garland appears to be Atlanta's fill-in option at right guard for the injured Brandon Fusco (ankle) moving forward, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
With Fusco heading to the inured reserve due to a broken ankle suffered during a Week 7 win over the Giants, Garland is poised for a half-season audition as a member of Atlanta's starting offensive line. The 30-year-old Air Force alum has appeared in 45 games over the course of his career, logging three starts (all three came last year, filling in for an injured Andy Levitre (triceps)). Garland joins a Falcons offensive line that's performed fairly well in pass protection this season (17th with 20 sacks allowed), but has struggled to pave the way for running backs Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith (averaging just 83.3 yards per game rushing).
Garland (calf) will play Sunday against the Saints, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Garland will return to his reserve lineman role in Week 3.
Garland (calf) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
With the announcement that Andy Levitre (triceps) is down for the remainder of the season, it's encouraging to see Garland working his way back into the fold. The coaching staff wants to get Garland some reps this week in practice, as he is the primary backup option at both right and left guard should either starter -- Brandon Fusco or Wes Schweitzer -- suffer an injury.
Garland (calf) will not play against the Panthers on Sunday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Garland continues to nurse a calf injury sustained in the preseason. The backup left guard also missed the team's season opener against the Eagles, and a timetable for his return to the field remains unclear. The Falcons may find themselves without depth on the interior offensive line, with starter Andy Levitre (elbow) limited in practice earlier this week.
Garland (calf) did not participate in practice Thursday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Atlanta's backup left guard has been dealing with a strained calf for upwards of four weeks, and the timetable for his return to team activities remains unclear. With starter Andy Levitre (elbow) announced as a limited participant for Thursday's practice, the Falcons find themselves stretched thin on the interior offensive line.
Garland (calf) will not suit up against the Eagles on Thursday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Garland continues to nurse the injury sustained three weeks ago prior to a preseason game against the Jaguars. A recovery timeline remains unknown, and the Falcons will enter Thursday's opener against the Eagles with less depth on the offensive line.
Garland (calf) has yet to participate in practice this week, according to the Falcons' official site.
Garland's status doesn't look great for Thursday's season-opener against the Eagles, as the guard has remained sidelined for the first two practices of the week. Look for Wednesday's status to be the major decider in whether he suits up for Week 1.
Garland (muscle strain) will not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Jaguars, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Garland will miss his second straight preseason contest as a result of the issue, leaving the Falcons with a little less depth on the offensive line against the Jaguars. There's still no indication of when the team expects him back in action.
Garland suffered a muscle strain and has been ruled out for Saturday's preseason game against the Jaguars, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
It's unclear exactly where Garland suffered the strain, but it is severe enough for the guard to be ruled out nearly a week in advance. It's unclear whether Garland will take part in any of the Falcons' practices this week either.
Garland signed his $2.9 million second-round restricted tender Sunday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Garland is thus set to spend the 2018 campaign with Atlanta while seeing a significant pay raise from the $690,000 he made last season.
Garland has been bestowed a second-round tender, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Set to become a restricted free agent upon the commencement of the new league year Wednesday, Garland was slapped with a second-round tender by the Falcons. Interested teams will need to surrender a second-round draft choice in order to acquire the veteran offensive guard, and Atlanta will be afforded the opportunity to match any offer before the transaction becomes finalized. Garland spent the beginning stages of his career bouncing between practice squad and backup duties, before a late-season injury to starting guard Andy Levitre presented him with substantial playing time over the final five games of the season.
The Broncos have signed exclusive-rights free agent tackle Paul Cornick and guard Ben Garland, per the Baltimore Sun.
This season will be Cornick's fourth with the Broncos while Garland will play his fifth with the team.
The Broncos have listed Montee Ball, Quinton Carter, Virgil Green, Kapri Bibbs , Steven Johnson, Ben Garland and Michael Schofield as inactive Week 9 against the Patriots.
Ball is still dealing with a groin injury, and won't play. Carter, Green and Johnson all entered the contest considered questionable. All three were ruled out Sunday.
The following players were ruled inactive for the Broncos Week 8 at home against the Chargers: Monte Ball, Omar Bolden, Kapri Bibbs, Steven Johnson, Ben Garland, Michael Schofield and Mitch Unrein.
The Broncos have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday night's game against the 49ers: running back Montee Ball (groin), wide receiver Cody Latimer, cornerback Tony Carter, linebacker Shaquil Barrett, guard Ben Garland, tackle Michael Schofield and defensive tackle Mitch Unrein.
The Broncos are very healthy heading into Week 7, with Ball the only player on the active roster missing the game due to injury. All the team's players listed as probable on the final injury report are active, including running back Juwan Thompson (knee), linebacker Corey Nelson (hamstring), kicker Brandon McManus (groin) and defensive backs Omar Bolden (groin), David Bruton (ankle) and Chris Harris (knee).
Featured back Montee Ball (groin) and linebacker Lerentee McCray (knee) are the lone injured players on the inactive report released Sunday by the Broncos for their game against the host Jets.
The healthy scratches are wide receiver Cody Latimer, defensive back Tony Carter, offensive linemen Ben Garland and Michael Schofield and defensive lineman Mitch Unrein.
