The San Francisco 49ers reportedly have traded center Daniel Kilgore and a seventh-round pick to the Miami Dolphins for a seventh-rounder, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

The Dolphins will also receive a 2018 seventh-round pick and send a 2018 seventh-round pick to San Francisco.

The Dolphins are also releasing C Maurice Pouncey.

The move comes after the 49ers signed C Weston Richburg to a large contract. After signing a three-year deal, Kerley was released before the season opener after San Francisco made a handful of signings in free agency. I had a hell of a ride here.

"On behalf of the entire organization I want to thank Dan for everything he contributed to this team and the Bay Area community over the last seven seasons", 49ers general manager John Lynch said.

He is a three-time Pro Bowl selection, earning the honors in three consecutive seasons from 2013 to 2015. "When Kyle and I arrived last offseason, we knew right away that he was a well-respected leader in the locker room and a true professional".

Sitton became a free agent when the Chicago Bears declined an $8 million option for 2018.

Kilgore, 30, was a 2011 fifth-round pick by the Niners.

Kilgore won the 49ers' Bobb McKittrick Award for the first time last season, awarded annually to the offensive lineman who best exemplifies the dedication, excellence and commitment of their former offensive line coach. It was reported in the previous year that Pouncey will eventually need hip replacement surgery, so the Dolphins probably thought it was better to move on sooner rather than later. He joins Ndamukong Suh, Jarvis Landry, Julius Thomas, Lawrence Timmons, Jay Cutler and Jermon Bushrod among 2017 Dolphins starters who are no longer with the team.
