The contract includes $3.1 million guaranteed and can be worth up to $12.7 million by reaching incentives and escalators included in the agreement.
The San Francisco 49ers announced Wednesday that they have re-signed DL Cassius Marsh to a two-year deal.
“Since joining the team late last season, Cassius has impressed us with his unique skill set and the tremendous energy and passion he brings to all phases of the game,” said 49ers GM John Lynch. “Cassius is a great example of our desire to reward our own players with contract extensions as we continue to build out our roster. We’re excited to have him as a 49er moving forward.”
Marsh, 25, is a former fourth-round pick by the Seahawks in the 2014 NFL Draft. The Seahawks traded Marsh to the Patriots for 2018 fifth- and seventh-round picks last year, but he was waived in November and later claimed off of waivers by the 49ers.
Marsh played out the final year of a four-year, $2,690,252 rookie contract and was set to be an unrestricted free agent next month.
In 2017, Marsh appeared in 15 games and recorded 30 tackles, three sacks and three forced fumbles.
