The San Francisco 49ers announced Wednesday that they have signed DT Quinton Dial to a three-year contract extension.
- Ian Rapoport reports that Dial’s three-year extension is worth $12 million and includes just over $5 million in guarantees.
“Throughout his first three seasons in the NFL, Quinton has shown consistent development and has become a key contributor in our defense,” said 49ers general manager Trent Baalke. “We have certainly seen his positive impact on the field and in our locker room, but we also recognize the impressive work he does in the community year round. We are pleased to extend the contract of young players like Quinton and are excited to see him continue his career with the 49ers.”
Dial, 25, is a former fifth-round pick of the 49ers back in 2013. He had one year remaining on his four-year, $2.341 million rookie contract that includes a base salary of $675,000 for the 2016 season.
In 2015, Dial appeared in 15 games for the 49ers and recorded 59 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and a pass defense.
