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.

Report: Patriots working on a new contract for 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo -- just in case

Better safe than sorry, right? Dale Arnold of NESN reports that the New England Patriots are working on a new contract for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Yes, Garoppolo is still with the San Francisco 49ers, and this news doesn't necessarily mean that a deal is imminent. If accurate, it just means that the Patriots are getting everything in order -- just in case a trade happens. It could also mean that the Patriots believe the 49ers are likely to seek a trade. What I've been told, by a reliable source —- @Patriots are working on a new



49ers have no plans to restructure Jimmy Garoppolo's contract, say Shanahan and Lynch

The 2021 NFL Draft is in the books. San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch spoke with reporters after making their eighth and final selection. There has been some speculation that the team might ask quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to restructure his contract this offseason, especially after drafting his eventual replacement — Trey Lance of North Dakota State — with the No. 3 overall pick. There are no plans to do so right now. Why? Because it's not necessary. Even after earmarking over $12 million for its latest rookie class, San Francisco isn't as pushed up against the salary cap as some felt it would be this offseason. Garoppolo remains part of the 49ers' plans for the upcoming season and will be needed to mentor the



John Lynch: 49ers plan to exercise 5th-year option on OT Mike McGlinchey

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters on Monday. Lynch revealed that the team plans to exercise the fifth-year option on offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey, keeping him signed through the 2022 season. The move will guarantee the offensive lineman $10.88 million in 2022. San Francisco drafted McGlinchey out of Notre Dame with the No. 9 overall pick in 2018. He earned a 79.7 overall grade and a 91.3 run-blocking grade from Pro Football Focus in 2020, both of which were career-highs. However, the offensive lineman's 58.3 pass-blocking grade was a career-low. "I think there's a lot of things I did really well all year,"
