Say goodbye to Garrett Celek.
Pending a physical, the 49ers are set to sign his likely replacement — Levine Toilolo.
— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) May 15, 2019
Toilolo (6’8″, 268 lbs.) will turn 28 on July 30. He went to Stanford and played for Kyle Shanahan from 2015 to 2016 on the Atlanta Falcons.
Toilolo is a blocking tight end who struggles to block on run plays, but is a good pass protector. In six seasons in the NFL, he has caught five touchdown passes in the red zone.
Toilolo probably will take Celek’s place as the No. 2 tight end behind George Kittle. And Toilolo should be an upgrade over Celek, who was one of the worst players in the NFL last season.
