49ers sign Colton McKivitz to a 2-year contract extension

Mar 9, 2023 at 3:42 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers announced they have signed offensive lineman Colton McKivitz to a two-year extension, keeping him with the team through the 2024 season.

San Francisco made McKivitz (6-6, 301) a fifth-round selection (No. 153 overall) out of West Virginia in 2020. He was scheduled to become a restricted free agent.

Over the last three years, McKivitz, 26, has appeared with the team in 28 games (five starts). He has also played in five postseason contests for San Francisco.

A 26-year-old native of Jacobsburg, OH, McKivitz attended West Virginia University, where he appeared in 50 games (47 starts) over his five-year collegiate career (2015-19). As a senior in 2019, McKivitz was named the Big 12 Conference Co-Offensive Lineman of the Year.

49ers OL coach Chris Foerster on RT Colton McKivitz: "The job is his coming into it"

By Rohan Chakravarthi

The San Francisco 49ers had a significant change this offseason, letting go of several key starters, such as Mike McGlinchey and Jimmie Ward, who earned lucrative multi-year deals elsewhere. That left the 49ers with a void at the right tackle position, where the team didn't add any significant talent in free agency or the NFL Draft, meaning that Colton McKivitz is the odds-on favorite to be the starter at the position. Speaking to the media for the first time this offseason, offensive line coach Chris Foerster praised the swing tackle, pointing out his value in spot duty and that it's McKivitz's job to lose, which should help build his confidence in a crucial year. "Colton, he's done a great job for us through the years he's been here,"

ESPN: 49ers have 'no choice' in Nick Bosa contract negotiations

By David Bonilla

Nick Bosa isn't stressing over his contract negotiations. Why should he? The pass rusher has built an impressive resume since the San Francisco 49ers made him the No. 2 overall pick in 2019. Bosa's nine sacks in 2019 helped him earn NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year honors. His 2020 campaign was cut short by an ACL injury, but it wasn't enough to slow down the talented defensive end. Bosa led the 49ers with 15.5 sacks the next season. Bosa racked up a league-leading 18.5 sacks last season on his way to being named NFL Defensive Player of the Year. The 49ers bought themselves some time by exercising the 25-year-old's fifth-year option, ensuring he remains with the team through the upcoming season.
