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.
