The San Francisco 49ers just announced they have signed 25-year-old defensive tackle Quinton Dial to a three-year contract extension through 2019.
Here’s a statement from Niners general manager Trent Baalke: “Throughout his first three seasons in the NFL, Quinton has shown consistent development and has become a key contributor in our defense. 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.”
This move seems to indicate Dial, who started 15 games at right defensive tackle last season, will remain a starter for the foreseeable future.
Does this move indicate anything about the 49ers’ willingness to re-sign nose tackle Ian Williams? Why or why not?
