Garnett, 25, is a former first-round pick by the 49ers in the 2016 NFL Draft. He is entering the second year of a four year $9.304 million rookie contract and is set to make a base salary of $872,923 this season to go along with another $1.29 in 2018.
He was reportedly likely to miss multiple regular-season games after undergoing a knee scope earlier this month.
In 2018, Garnett appeared in 7 games for the 49ers.
Matthews, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Eagles back in 2014. The Eagles traded Matthews and a 2018 third-round pick to the Bills in return for CB Ronald Darby in 2017.
Matthews played out the final year of his four-year, $4,949,269 contract and made a base salary of $1,094,901 for the 2017 season before signing a one-year contract with Patriots worth up to $1.7 million.
The Eagles signed him to a one-year contract in September of last year and played out his deal with Philadelphia. He signed a one-year deal with the 49ers back in March, making his stint in San Francisco short-lived.
In 2018, Matthews appeared in 14 games for the Eagles and recorded 20 receptions for 300 yards receiving (15 YPC) and two touchdowns
Bromley, 27, is a former third-round pick of the Giants back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $3,003,876 rookie contract and signed on with the Saints in May of last year.
The Saints elected to release Bromley coming out of the preseason as they trimmed their roster down to 53 players. He was on and off of their roster last year before the 49ers signed him a few weeks ago.
In 2018, Bromley appeared in two games for the Saints and recorded four tackles, one tackle for loss, and no sacks.
