Left tackle Joe Staley signed a two-year extension through the 2019 season, the 49ers announced on Thursday.
Staley had four years remaining on the extension he signed in 2009 that averaged $7.2 million per season. He was set to receive $3.4 million in salary this season. Terms of his new deal were not immediately known.
“In today’s NFL, it is rare for a player to play his entire career with one team,” 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said in a statement.
“With this extension, Joe will likely be a 49er for life. He is a three-time All-Pro and core member of our football team. His commitment and professionalism have been great assets to our team and our community. This extension reflects our philosophy of investing in our core players.”
Staley was seeking a new contract from the 49ers, but went about it in a different fashion than tight end Vernon Davis and right guard Alex Boone. Rather than sit out the offseason program and mandatory minicamp, he did not miss any of the team’s offseason activities. Staley was on hand Thursday at the ribbon-cutting ceremony at Levi’s Stadium.
