OT Joe Staley and the Niners Agree to a New Deal

The 49ers and offensive tackle Joe Staley agreed to terms on a reworked contract that will give the veteran a raise over the next two seasons, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports via Kevin Patra of NFL.com.

Staley was originally due to make $11 million combined in 2018 and 2019. Now, per Rapoport, he’ll make $17.4 million total. This season Staley will get a raise from $5.5 million to $8.72 million.

The 49ers had more than $47 million in cap space before the move, per Over The Cap, so this does little to affect their financial situation in the short term.

The move appears motivated by rewarding their longtime stalwart left tackle. Perhaps the pay bump was to convince Staley to stick around with Jimmy Garoppolo for the next two years instead of contemplating retirement.
