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.

Maybe Jimmy Garoppolo will be the San Francisco 49ers quarterback next season. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said on Tuesday that he expects that to be the case. "I expect Jimmy to be our starter next year," Shanahan told reporters. "I mean, I expect him to come play with us this year (after he recovers from his ankle injury). We have six games left. We are not out of the playoffs yet. I've been on a team that was 3-6 going into a bye week that ended up winning their division.

There has been a lot of speculation surrounding San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's NFL future. Will he remain in the Bay Area next season? Will the 49ers look to the draft or free agency to move in a different direction? On Tuesday, head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters via Zoom from his home and was asked about Garoppolo's future. "I expect Jimmy to be our starter next year," Shanahan said.

Peter King: A healthy 49ers team would be the best in the NFC West, could be the best next year

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers are far from the best team within the NFC West. At 4-6, they sit at the bottom of the division, looking up at the slugfest for first place between the Los Angeles Rams and the Seattle Seahawks. The Arizona Cardinals are in a close second-place spot. Of course, injuries have been a significant part of the 49ers' storyline this season. The roster has been decimated unlike any in recent memory, and the defending NFC champions look almost unrecognizable on the football field. A healthy 49ers team probably would be in the thick of things. That's what Peter King of NBC Sports believes. In fact, a healthy Niners squad may have once again been the measuring stick of the division. Unfortunately for head coach Kyle Shanahan and his
