49ers sign tackle Garry Gilliam to a two-year extension

Feb 27, 2018 at 1:09 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers have announced that tackle Garry Gilliam has signed a two-year extension to remain with the team. The deal is worth $8 million with nearly $4 million guaranteed, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

The 49ers initially signed Gilliam, who was a restricted free agent at the time, to a one-year offer sheet worth $2.2 million with $1.4 million guaranteed on April 17, 2017. His previous team, the Seattle Seahawks, declined to match the offer.

Gilliam appeared in eight games with one start in 2017. His season was cut short after suffering an MCL injury during a Week 8 contest against the Philadelphia Eagles. Gilliam started the game at right tackle for an injured Trent Brown, and the 49ers placed him on injured reserve on November 7, 2017.

Over his career, Gilliam has appeared in 52 games and started 31. He was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent.

The San Francisco 49ers have announced the signing of wide receiver Jauan Jennings, who played college football at Tennessee, to his four-year rookie deal.
