San Francisco 49ers decided to clear doubts about Joe Staley’s future and signed the veteran tackle to a two-year extension. Staley, who had one year left on his contract, will now stay with the 49ers at least through 2021.
The financial terms of the extension remain undisclosed. Staley was set to make $8.075 million in base salary this season according to his old deal.
The 49ers confirmed the news on social media.
“It was a big deal for me,” – Staley told NFL Network’s MJ Acosta after inking the extension. “It was something I was very proud of. The opportunity to finish my career in one spot was one of my goals. Honestly, when I came in, it was to play for this one franchise and make a career out of this.”
Joe Staley entered the league in 2007 when the 49erst made him a first-round pick in that year’s draft. During his time with the franchise, Staley played a total of 174 games, all of them as a starter.
Staley’s career highlights include PFWA All-Rookie Team selection, six Pro Bowl appearances, and three Second-team All-Pro honors.
