49ers re-sign center Daniel Kilgore to three-year contract extension

Feb 14, 2018 at 1:32 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers announced that they have re-signed center Daniel Kilgore to a three-year contract extension.

"We are really happy to come to an agreement on a contract extension with Dan before free agency," 49ers general manager John Lynch said via a statement issued by the team. "He is very much a leader of this team, and his hard work and commitment to our success provide a great example for our young team. When you come across players who love the game like Dan you do your best to keep them in your building."

Kilgore, who was drafted by the 49ers out of Appalachian State in the fifth round of the 2011 NFL Draft, started a career-high 16 games in 2017. He ranked 23rd out of 35 centers to kick off the season, according to Pro Football Focus. However, Kilgore had a strong finish, was a top 10 center, and didn't allow a sack or quarterback hit during the 49ers' final five games of the season.

In 2016, Kilgore started 13 games for San Francisco before being placed on injured reserve on December 13, 2016.

During his seven-year career with the 49ers, Kilgore has appeared in 74 games and started 39. He has also appeared in six postseason games. At the end of the 2017 season, Kilgore was named the winner of the Bobb McKittrick Award, which is given annually to the 49ers offensive lineman who best represents the courage, intensity, and sacrifice.

Kilgore becomes the fourth impending free agent to re-sign with the 49ers this offseason. The team re-signed linebacker Mark Nzeocha to a one-year deal on January 26, re-signed defensive end Cassius Marsh to a two-year deal on February 7, and then inked quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to an NFL-record five-year contract a day later.

The San Francisco 49ers aren't anywhere near where they want to be five games into the regular season, but they're also not exactly down on themselves either as their bye week gets underway. The 49ers fell 17-10 to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, which marked their third consecutive loss after opening the season with wins over the Detroit Lions and Philadelphia Eagles. The loss sent the 49ers to 2-3 on the year after defeats at the hands of the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks in previous weeks, and at the moment they face a sizable deficit in the NFC West behind the 5-0 Cardinals and 4-1 Los Angeles Rams. They're also dealing with a long list of injuries, most notably those to quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (calf), tight end George Kittle (calf), running

'It's a big concern this year': 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan discusses Javon Kinlaw's injury, development setback

Some fans are a bit too quick to write off defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw, feeling that he is yet another first-round misstep by the San Francisco 49ers. However, head coach Kyle Shanahan still believes in him and feels the defender's injury setbacks can still be overcome. Kinlaw entered the draft as a raw but physically gifted prospect that could develop into a force along the defensive line. That development has been stalled as the 49ers do what they can to manage the second-year player's injury. Kinlaw sustained a knee injury on December 20, 2020, against the Dallas Cowboys, forcing him to miss the season's final two games. He underwent a procedure after the 2020 season and then had what was described as a minor procedure to reduce swelling in the knee later in

On Tuesday, the San Francisco 49ers waived cornerback Davontae Harris, a day after activating the defender from injured reserve. Today, the team announced that it signed Harris to the practice squad. San Francisco initially claimed Harris (5-11, 200) off waivers from the Baltimore Ravens on August 17. He landed on injured reserve on September 1 due to a hamstring injury. The 26-year-old cornerback has recorded 50 tackles, four passes defensed, and a forced fumble through his three NFL seasons. In addition to the 49ers and Ravens (2020), the fourth-year player spent time with the Cincinnati Bengals, the team that made him a fifth-round draft pick out of Illinois State in 2018, and the Denver Broncos
