49ers Sign S Tartt to Two-Year Extension


The San Francisco 49ers announced on Friday they have signed S Jaquiski Tartt to a two-year contract extension through the 2020 season.

"Since we arrived last year, Jaquiski has impressed us with his play, his work ethic and the kind of teammate he is," said General Manager John Lynch. "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."

Originally selected by the 49ers in the second round (46th overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft, Tartt (6-1, 221) has appeared in 39 games (23 starts) and registered 181 tackles, nine passes defensed, 3.5 sacks, two interceptions and one forced fumble during his three-year career. In 2017, he started in a career-high nine games and registered 54 tackles, three passes defensed, one interception and 0.5 sack.
