The 49ers are keeping Jaquiski Tartt around for the long haul.
The team on Friday inked the fourth-year safety to a two-year contract extension that will keep him in San Francisco through 2020.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that Tartt’s extension is worth $13 million — and up to $15 million with incentives — according to a source.
Kyle Long, G, Chicago: The Bears hit a home run with this pick as the Oregon product was named to the All-Rookie team in his first season and was named to the Pro Bowl in each of his first three years in Chicago. He’s battled injuries the past two seasons, including ankle and shoulder problems in 2017. This offseason, Long had neck surgery but posted on social media saying he had plenty of time to get himself prepared for the 2018 season.
Kendall Wright, WR, Tennessee: Wright looked to be on his way to big things after catching 94 passes for 1,079 yards in his second season with the Titans. However, he never was able to build off that the next three seasons in Tennessee and signed last year with the Bears.
Enter Mayfield, who eventually should beat out newly acquired veteran Tyrod Taylor, if not immediately.
Dorsey adeptly evaluated the pros about Mayfield:
It is a combination of things. I talk about hand size; he has 9 6-8th (inch) hands. … That is good for the elements in November and December. He has feet to extend the play. He has really good accuracy. He has a quick release. He has a strong arm. His efficiency in the red zone offense is uncanny.
You know what else separates him? He is hungry. He wants to be a really good football player, and he is going to be a really good football player.
Mayfield also is short for the position at just over 6-foot. He has to adjust to the pro-style Cheap Authentic NBA Jerseys offense of coach Hue Jackson. He must show he can take the kind of hits college players couldn’t Cheap College Jerseys deliver but the pros do regularly.
