49ers extend the contract of offensive lineman Daniel Kilgore
- Updated: February 28, 2014
The San Francisco 49ers have signed offensive lineman Daniel Kilgore to a three-year contract extension. The total contract will be worth $6.045 million over the next four seasons. He will earn base salaries of $645,000 in 2014, $800,000 in 2015, $900,000 in 2016 and $1 million in 2017.
Keeping Kilgore in the fold is a significant development, given the fact that starting center Jonathan Goodwin is a free agent and unlikely to be resigned by San Francisco. Kilgore, who received a $1.35 million signing bonus, is the front-runner to take Goodwin’s spot with the first team.
The 49ers traded up in the fifth round of the 2011 draft in order to select Kilgore. He has appeared in every game the past two seasons, although he has never made a start. Kilgore will face competition on the roster from Joe Looney and Adam Snyder, as well as any other veteran or rookie who may be brought into the fold.
