Last night at the 49ers’ State of the Franchise, team CEO Jed York, broke some exciting news for the Faithful. 34 year old left tackle, Joe Staley and the San Francisco 49ers reach an agreement extending his career with the 49ers for two more seasons with the organization. Staley, the Last of the Mohicans (Scott McCloughan’s last pick on the active roster), was the 49ers first-round draft pick (28th) in 2007 out of Central Michigan.
The best part of this signing is, Joe Staley said he wanted to remain a 49er until he just couldn’t physically play anymore. Although the contractual numbers haven’t been released, it will be an awesome siting to see the “Big Red 74” suit up at left tackle for the next two seasons.
On the #49ers 2-year extension with LT Joe Staley: He’s on the books for $36.75 over 3 years ($28M in new money). If he plays 16 games, he’ll make $13.5M in 2019. In 2020, he got $10.55M base ($4.5M guaranteed) with 700K in bonuses. In 2021, it’s $11.3M plus $700K in bonuses.
