The 49ers have extended the contract of their top blocking back.

The club said Thursday it had signed fullback Bruce Miller to a new three-year deal. The 27-year-old Miller started 13 games for the 49ers in 2013, catching 25 passes for 243 yards and rushing seven times for 13 yards before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury. He played 543 snaps, second-most among fullbacks, according to Pro Football Focus data.

“Bruce is a hard-working, dedicated young player that has done an outstanding job for us, both on and off the field,” 49ers G.M. Trent Baalke said in a team-issued statement. “He is one of those players that contributes a lot more to the team and to the community than he gets credit for, yet wouldn’t have it any other way. We are pleased that Bruce has chosen to extend his stay with the 49ers.”

ESPN’s Bill Williamson first reported Miller’s contract extension.

  1. The Fullback position is making a comeback! Football is coming back thanks to the NFC West. Not a fan of any of the teams, but I LOVE the way they play football. Screw passing for 5k yards and putting up 40 points a game. I wanna see tough defense and a hard nose running game. I wanna see play action passes mean something instead of teams just dropping back and flinging 15 yards down the field. I wanna see long TDs runs where 4 tackles are broken while the crowd roars. I want FOOTBALL.

  2. Wish all players displayed the same professionalism and desire to participate in community service projects as Bruce Miller does! Thrilled to see this extension and wish him good health & continued success in his career.

  3. Santa Clara is 50 miles away? Funny I make it from SF to SC in 20-25 minutes no traffic…Oh yeah you Seattle people don’t understand the concept of freeways and metro areas in that small little town of yours…

  4. I guess some people dont realize the 49ers practice facility has been in santa clara for years! Gameday was the only day in SF some people speak without knowing what there talking about

  5. The two best teams in the NFL feature their fullbacks in a prominent role and have the lowest quarterback budgets in the league. But Mayock will keep sputtering about how it’s “a quarterback driven league!”.

  6. Lol NorCal I don’t care how fast you’re going you ain’t getting from SF to SC in 20 minutes. And when is there not traffic in the lame suburban wasteland that is the Bay Area ?
