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.

The seven-man pass protection in today's NFL seems a little foreign, considering how much the tight end position has evolved over the last 20 years. Today's hybrid tight end, a man built from DNA spliced from a sprinter, basketball player and professional wrestler, has an integral role in the passing attack. A generation ago, San Francisco 49ers tight end Brent Jones finished his career averaging 36.3 receiving yards per game.
