The 49ers don’t need to draft a starting right guard anymore.
They just re-signed their starter from last season, Mike Person, to a the three-year, $9 million contract extension, with $3 million guaranteed, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Person will earn more than $3 million next season, and backup guard Joshua Garnett will earn more than $1.7 million. So the 49ers probably won’t sign another guard or draft an offensive lineman until Day 3 of the upcoming draft, if they draft one at all. Which means the 49ers will bring back the same starting five offensive linemen who gave up 125 quarterback hits last season — second most in the league.
Do you like this signing? And which Day-3 offensive lineman do you think the 49ers should draft?
