Report: 49ers agree to three-year extension with OL Daniel Kilgore

The 49ers announced on Thursday afternoon that they've extended OL Daniel Kilgore to a three-year extension that keeps him through the 2017 season. General manager Trent Baalke released the following statement on this extension.

"We are pleased to extend the contract of a talented, young player like Dan. This move is another example of our philosophy to extend the contracts of our own young players.”

Kilgore was entering his contract year from his rookie deal which kept him under contract through 2014. Originally a fifth-round draft pick out of Appalachian State, he spent most of his first three seasons as a reserve interior offensive lineman. He appeared in all 16 games as well as three postseason games during the 2013 season.

With Kilgore extended, it's most likely C Jonathan Goodwin will not be returning next year. Goodwin was the starting center for the last three seasons and he is an unrestricted free agent next month.

Kilgore has never started a game, but he is capable of playing both the center and guard positions if needed on the offensive line. The 49ers utilized him as an extra blocker for short yardage situations including the goal line.
