Here’s a statement about Tartt from GM John Lynch: “Since we arrived last year, Jaquiski has impressed us with his play, his work ethic and the kind of teammate he is. We believe he’s a natural fit in our defensive system, and his abilities will allow him to flourish. It is always exciting when we are able to extend our own young players like Jaquiski who are dedicated to their craft, this team and our community.”
Tartt, 26, recorded one interception and three pass breakups in nine games last season. He missed seven games with a broken arm.
The timing of this extension is interesting. Maybe if Mike McGlinchey wasn’t available in Round 1, the 49ers would have drafted a safety such as Minkah Fitzpatrick or Derwin James, and Tartt wouldn’t haven’t gotten this extension.
What do you think?
