49ers sign TE Garrett Celek to a 4-year contract extension

Feb 23, 2016 at 12:33 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have signed TE Garrett Celek, who was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent, to a four-year contract extension. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the deal is worth $14 million with $5 million guaranteed.

Last week, it was reported by ESPN's Adam Caplan that the team, who is reportedly scheduled to have over $55 million in cap space, was close to a new deal with Celek. Over 11 games last season, Celek, who turns 28 in May, caught 19 passes for 186 yards and three touchdowns. He suffered an ankle sprain on November 29 against the Arizona Cardinals, ending his season for the second-straight year.


Celek signed a one-year extension with the 49ers in March of 2015. He originally signed with San Francisco in 2012 as an undrafted free agent and has 25 receptions for 293 yards and three touchdowns in his NFL career. He played for Michigan State in college and is the younger brother of Philadelphia Eagles tight end Brent Celek.

Other tight ends on the 49ers roster include Vance McDonald, Blake Bell, Rory Anderson, who spent the 2015 season on IR, and Je'Ron Hamm. Both Bell and Anderson were draft selections last year.

During the 2015 season, the 49ers traded long-time starting tight end Vernon Davis to the Denver Broncos prior to the trade deadline.

The San Francisco 49ers are big on building through the draft, and that can lead to several team-friendly contracts for some young up-and-coming NFL stars. Now and then, you miss on a high draft pick, though. The Reuben Foster selection in 2017 forced the 49ers to spend big on Kwon Alexander when the team was forced to part ways with the troubled young linebacker. The emergence of another young linebacker may have made up for that, though. San Francisco made Fred Warner a third-round draft pick a year after the Foster selection, and that rookie contract has been named the team's best-value by Bleacher Report's Brent

You probably remember Matt Barrows of The Athletic earlier this month revealing that "someone in the know" felt the San Francisco 49ers and tight end George Kittle would ultimately land on a contract extension worth around $13 million a year. Barrows also discussed the possibility of Kittle playing hardball with the 49ers, and refusing to report to training camp. The reporter couldn't envision that happening given the tight end's character and actions this offseason. "That's just not who Kittle is," Barrows explained. "He's been taking part in all of the Zoom classroom sessions this offseason. He was on hand for the workouts in Nashville. My guess — and
