Ranks 5th in franchise history for the most regular season games played by an offensive lineman (174).

Was 1 of only 3 NFL rookies (former 49ers LB Patrick Willis and Browns LT Joe Thomas) to line up for every single snap in 2007, and was 1 of 35 NFL players overall to accomplish the feat out of 1,898 total players.
Recovered a fumble for a TD [vs. NYJ (12/7/08)], becoming the 6th offensive lineman in 49ers history to register a TD.
Started the 150th game of his career vs. Dal. (10/22/17).
The 49ers worked alongside the humanitarian-relief organization Convoy of Hope on December 4, 2018, and hosted 1,500 guests in-need from Bay Area nonprofits and schools at Levi’s® Stadium for a free holiday resource fair. Staley and his 49ers teammates distributed groceries, toys, books, shoes and other holiday offerings to the guests. The attendees also received haircuts, utilized health resources and took family portraits or professional headshots. Convoy of Hope is a nonprofit organization that directs children’s feeding initiatives, hosts community outreach programs and provides disaster response resources to those in need in the Bay Area and throughout the world.
After posing for a photoshoot, Staley and his teammates joined Levi’s in support of breast, colon and pediatric cancer warriors at the Crucial Catch Fashion Show presented by Dignity Health on October 2, 2018. 49ers players and cancer warriors took to the runway to show off their attire and share their stories of strength and courage with the audience.
In honor of the NFL’s Crucial Catch campaign, the 49ers hosted a fashion show on Tuesday, October 17th, 2017, featuring breast cancer and pediatric cancer warriors in apparel donated by Levi’s®. Staley, along with his 49ers teammates, walked the runway with cancer warriors as they shared their stories of strength and courage with the audience.
In July of 2016, Staley, along with fellow NFL players, appeared on ABC’s Family Feud as part of “Celebrity Family Feud.” He was part of a team that competed on the iconic game show to win up to $25,000 for charity. On the show, he was teammates with Pierre Garçon, and the two were teammates on the field with the 49ers for two seasons (2017-18).
In 2013, Joe was an ambassador for San Francisco’s first Electric Run, a 5K race that benefits Smile Train, the world’s largest cleft lip and palate charity. The race, which was held at Candlestick Park, raised $10,000 for Smile Train and more than 8,000 people participated in the event.
Prior to Super Bowl 50 at Levi’s Stadium, Staley gave away a pair of tickets and a signed game-worn jersey to single father Johnel Spivey and his seven-year-old daughter, Jordan. Spivey, 54, had been on dialysis three days a week for the previous six years. Despite surgery, he avoided pain medication so he could stay focused on his daughter’s needs.
Entering his sophomore season at Central Michigan, Staley and the football program experienced a coaching change. New head coach Brian Kelly and offensive line coach Jeff Quinn asked him to make the switch to offensive tackle. He agreed and the transformation began where he began to wake up at 2 a.m. to consume a 2,000 calorie weight-gaining shake and would work out twice a day to prepare his body for its new life in the trenches. In the first offseason, Staley added 20 pounds to his lean frame. By the time he was a senior, he reached 290 pounds and went on to become the first Chippewa to be drafted in the first round of the NFL Draft.
