49ers sign DT Quinton Dial to a 3-year extension

Feb 24, 2016 at 11:58 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers announced today that they have signed DT Quinton Dial to a three-year extension. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the deal maxes out at $16.5 million over those three years and Dial gets $5.3 million guaranteed.


Dial was entering the final year of his initial rookie four-year contract. He was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in 2017.


"Throughout his first three seasons in the NFL, Quinton has shown consistent development and has become a key contributor in our defense," said 49ers general manager Trent Baalke according to Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area. "We are pleased to extend the contract of young players like Quinton and are excited to see him continue his career with the 49ers."

Dial, who was taken in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft out of Alabama, has 90 tackles and 4.5 sacks over his career. In August of 2013, Dial was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list but played in three games making one tackle. In 2014, he played in 14 games making 30 tackles with two sacks and a pass defended. In 2015, he started 15 games and had 59 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and one pass defended.

On Tuesday, the 49ers gave TE Garrett Celek a four-year contract extension worth $14 million with $5 million guaranteed.

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan on Garoppolo: 'I expect Jimmy to be our starter next year'

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. "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. "I think we have guys on this team capable of finishing this the right way. We've got to do

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

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

49ers-Saints: Still no sign of Deebo Samuel at practice, Kendrick Bourne returns

Reporters did not see San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel during today's practice, which is the last of this week before the team boards a plane bound for New Orleans. That means the second-year wideout did not practice at all this week, making his availability for Sunday's game against the Saints very unlikely. Samuel is attempting to return from a hamstring injury suffered during the 49ers' Week 7 win over the New England Patriots. General manager John Lynch had hoped Samuel might be able to get onto the practice field today but noted that his availability for this weekend remained a long shot. "I think the final challenge or opportunity for Deebo to show that he can go is out here on Friday,"
