Staley, who was entering the final year of his last deal, was set to earn $8.075 million in 2019.
“It was a big deal for me,” Staley reporters. “It was something I was very proud of. The opportunity to finish my career in one spot was one of my goals. Honestly, when I came in, it was to play for this one franchise and make a career out of this.”
With 12 years in San Francisco under his belt and three more to come, Staley will get his wish.
“When I signed the deal and agreed to terms, I saw Kyle [Shanahan] and John [Lynch] right after and I broke down, I started crying. I don’t get emotional like that. I don’t look back on my career ever and think of like things and whatever — it’s not something I’ve really done — but this is something that I take pride in, to have the opportunity to play for one franchise for my entire career.”
