Here’s a statement from Niners general manager Trent Baalke: “Since Garrett entered the league as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2012, he has displayed the skill, work ethic and desire to compete at a high level in the National Football League. His commitment and determination to succeed are reflected in the way he conducts himself as a professional on and off the field. As an organization, we would like to congratulate Garrett and look forward to his continued development as a member of this organization.”
Do you think this move indicates Celek will be the starting tight end next season? He caught 19 passes for 186 yards and three touchdowns last season.
