49ers extend Joe Staley through 2019

Frank Gore, Joe Staley AP

The 49ers may start training camp without guard Alex Boone because they haven’t given him the new contract he desires, but it’s not because they are opposed to contract extensions in general.

In fact, they announced one for another member of the offensive line on Thursday. The team announced that they have reached agreement with left tackle Joe Staley on a two-year extension that will keep him in San Francisco through the 2019 season.

Staley was already signed through the 2017 season with salaries escalating from the $2.7 million he is set to make this season. There’s no word on the new financial terms of the deal, but it is probably a good bet that Staley will be paid more in line with his production after being set to make less than tackles like Will Beatty of the Giants in the 2014 season.

“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 from the team. “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.”

With extensions done for Staley and quarterback Colin Kaepernick, the 49ers are now free to turn their attention to an extension for wide receiver Michael Crabtree or guard Mike Iupati if that’s in their plans. They could also rework deals for Boone and disgruntled tight end Vernon Davis or get moving on an extension for linebacker Aldon Smith, who is signed through 2015 after the team exercised the fifth-year option on his rookie deal.

    This is why, in the NFL West, the 49ers and the Seahawks have the best rivalry in football and are the best two teams and will be for a long time.

    They both sign from within first… unlike Arizona, who can’t seem to keep their best players.

    Congrats to Joe, a true Pro!

    Good for him. Always nice to see great players stay with their teams. Time for the Broncos to sign DT to a long term deal!

    Meanwhile on the defensive line….the star End drives drunk to practice and guns the engine after hitting a tree.

    From a Seahawks fan. Good on you Joe Staley. Class act. See you this fall…….

  6. rrhoe says: Jul 17, 2014 5:52 PM

    He is a three-time All-Pro and is only making $2.7mil this year,as a tackle–talk about underpaid……..

  7. thegreatgabbert says: Jul 17, 2014 5:53 PM

    Joe got paid just to spite Boone and Vernon Davis.

  8. realnflmaster says: Jul 17, 2014 5:55 PM

    This guy sucks. Way too many years. He’s no D’Brickishaw Ferguson that’s for sure.

  9. seatownballers says: Jul 17, 2014 5:55 PM

    Vernon gonna get paid?

  10. bassplucker says: Jul 17, 2014 5:57 PM

    A stud LT is to a football team as a great drummer is to a band. They are so hard to find that if you luck into one, you’d best pay them extremely well and be willing to put up with some crap to keep them around.

  11. taylorgangtrippymane says: Jul 17, 2014 5:57 PM

    Sucks for Joe. He has to stay with a classless franchise that won’t win a SB until at least 2019

  12. fyreandnice says: Jul 17, 2014 6:00 PM

    Joe Show! Joe Show!

    One of my favorite players. Great move. Reward the guys that work and are team first. Staley wants a ring, Davis wants a brand.

    Good player. Congrats from a Seahawk fan

    The culture in AZ has changed for some time now. AZ is known to extend their quality players when they have 1-2 years left on contract, i.e. Fitz, Campbell, Dockett, Johnson, Washington. Peterson is next.

    As a football fan, I love how Staley plays the game. Old school, tough, tone-setter for their offense. As a Seahawk fan, this move disappoints me. Nice job 9ers!

  16. ctiggs says: Jul 17, 2014 6:21 PM

    Congrats Joe, you are the man!!

  17. 34defense2014 says: Jul 17, 2014 6:26 PM

    If you guys don’t want Davis? I’ll take him on my team twice on Sunday!!

  18. computojon says: Jul 17, 2014 6:30 PM

    (As a Ram fan) — very good player, congrats to the Niner fans, but… “With this extension, Joe will likely be a 49er for life.”

    “Extended through 2019″ is an ongoing public relations scam by the NFL. As soon as his production dips, the team simply cuts him. The only thing that actually matters is guaranteed money. Everything else is just fodder for headlines and multiple exclamation points.

    Someone should tell VDavis this is how it’s done. Keep your mouth shut and your rewards should come, if they’re deserved. Negotiating in the media never helps. Great trade between the Pats and 49ers in 2007, when the 49ers traded back into the 1rst rnd to get this outstanding player. The Pats ended up with JMayo the next yr, and used the extra pick to get RMoss. Talk about a win-win.

    A no brainer if there ever was one.

    Congrats to Staley. He wanted a new contract but went through the right way. Davis and Boone need to follow suit. Get their head out of their but show up to camp, work hard, be a pro and then get an extension. Boone is underpaid but if he does what Gore and Staley did, the 49ers I bet would give him more years.

    Best LT in the league..Makes guys like Clay Mathews look like scrubs

  23. wny49er says: Jul 17, 2014 7:14 PM

    Any battle is always won in the trenches. Good job in getting him locked down for the next five years.

  24. radrntn says: Jul 17, 2014 7:33 PM

    2 .7 million….what an insult

  25. hyzers says: Jul 17, 2014 8:28 PM

    I played against Joe Staley in high school. Except at the time he was a 6’4 230 lb TE who had the school record in the 200m…

  26. 49erlifer says: Jul 17, 2014 9:01 PM

    In your face Boone!

  27. kuranda84 says: Jul 17, 2014 9:30 PM

    As a Seahawks fan, I like to see players from within getting extensions. Not just shopping for players in free agency, but drafting them, developing them, and then resigning them.

    Good for Staley. Always seems like a class act and is part of what makes the 9ers-Seahawks the best rivalry in football!

  28. nomoreseasontix says: Jul 17, 2014 10:31 PM

    But… What about Vernon Davis? And his brand?
    He thinks he should be next on the agenda. What are the Niners thinking, negotiating with other players?
    The nerve….

  29. Great Caesar's Ghost says: Jul 18, 2014 12:04 AM

    Poor Joe Staley. Who’d wanna stay in San Francisco for God’s sake.

  30. emperorzero says: Jul 18, 2014 1:36 AM

    Good for Joe. Go Chippewas!

  31. jayniner says: Jul 18, 2014 1:58 AM

    Vernon, Boone…..have you put your egos in check yet?

    The Niners negotiate with people that show up.

  32. hawkstradamus says: Jul 18, 2014 3:00 AM

    And the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks have extended the 49ers Super Bowl drought. #20yearsofnothingtocelebrate.

  33. pfromvv says: Jul 18, 2014 3:05 AM

    Hey Alex Boone and Vernon Davis have you learned anything yet?

  34. mikekowa says: Jul 18, 2014 10:10 AM

    Congrats from a Seahawks fan. Joe is a great and loyal player.

    Greatly deserved, class act
