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' Jimmy Garoppolo on NFL future: "I'll worry about that at the end of the year"

By David Bonilla
Nov 25

Jimmy Garoppolo is setting himself up for a nice payday next year. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback is scheduled to be a free agent, and his market is expected to be much improved compared to this past offseason. Garoppolo expected to be elsewhere this season, even after his trade stock plummeted following offseason shoulder surgery. With no one interested in a quarterback going through rehab, Garoppolo signed a restructured one-year deal with the 49ers to serve as Trey Lance's backup. The one caveat being that San Francisco couldn't use the franchise tag on him in 2023, allowing him to test the free agent market freely. Garoppolo entered the season looking to support Lance and do what he could in his role as QB2. However, everything changed in Week 2 when

It was a strange week for the San Francisco 49ers, who had to work through an unusual schedule that saw them arrive home from their Monday night game in Mexico City in the early morning hours on Tuesday, followed by Thanksgiving on Thursday. Still, they managed to work through it and prepare themselves to play against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, and in the end they came out on top with a 13-0 win. How did the 49ers work through that schedule? We'll look at that in this version of 49ers Notebook, along with some postgame thoughts from head coach Kyle Shanahan on the running back situation, a look at an impressive streak the 49ers snapped on Sunday, and much more.

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle had just one catch for 21 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday night. It was an impressive effort, though. One person inside the organization even believes it may have been the play that turned everything around in the game for the Niners. The team didn't seem to be clicking for much of the first half. Kittle made the catch and then refused to go down 😤 @gkittle46📺: #LACvsSF on



Why play-calling shouldn't be blamed for 49ers' offensive woes

By Rohan Chakravarthi
Nov 18

The 49ers don't have a playcalling issue. They have an execution issue. Week after week, I've evaluated the 49ers' offensive film to understand where the problems stem from, and it's the same answer every week: execution. In Week 10, the 49ers scored just 22 points, as they converted only two of their five red zone drives into touchdowns, while leaving other points on the board elsewhere. First Red Zone drive On 1st & Goal at the LAC 9, Jimmy Garoppolo threw an incompletion out of the endzone to a well-covered Deebo Samuel. This
