49ers cen­ter Daniel Kil­gore re­ceives three-year ex­ten­sion

Imperial Valley Press - - SPORTS -

49ers quar­ter­back Jimmy Garop­polo has his man to snap the ball for the next sev­eral sea­sons after cen­ter Daniel Kil­gore re­ceived a three-year con­tract ex­ten­sion.

The team an­nounced the deal Wed­nes­day that takes Kil­gore through the 2020 sea­son. Last week, Garop­polo signed a $137.5 mil­lion, five-year con­tract.

Nin­ers gen­eral man­ager John Lynch says it was im­por­tant to reach a deal with Kil­grore ahead of the free agency pe­riod.

The 30-year-old Kil­gore started a ca­reer-high 17 games last sea­son. A fifth-round draft pick in 2011, he has made 39 ca­reer starts in 74 reg­u­lar-sea­son games.

He has started in each of his past 32 games.
