When the 49ers passed on exercising their option on Laken Tomlinson‘s contract for the 2019 season, General Manager John Lynch said that the team was going to work toward a long-term extension with the guard.
That work has paid off. Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports that the two sides have agreed on a three-year extension. Per Garafolo, the contract is worth $18 million with $10 million in guarantees.
Tomlinson was selected by the Lions with the 28th overall pick of the 2015 draft and traded to the 49ers for a fifth-round pick last August. He started 15 games for the 49ers in his first season with the team.
