The 49ers have released PK Joe Nedney and C Eric Heitmann.

Nedney, who was let go after failing his physical, had connected on 86.6 percent of his field-goal attempts since joining the team in 2005, the third-best percentage in the NFL over the time span. He played in 86 games and connected on all 154 of his extra-point attempts.

"Joe is a consummate pro in every sense," general manager Trent Baalke said in a statement. "As a player, no word better describes him than 'clutch.' Having grown up in the Bay Area, he is a great ambassador for the 49ers."

Heitmann, who was a seventh-round pick of the 49ers in the '02 draft, played in 119 games for the team from 2004-09.

"Eric gave nine tremendous years of service to the franchise and the Bay Area community," Baalke said of Heitmann. "As a leader in our locker room, he epitomized what the 49ers strive to achieve."
