Golden Nuggets: Daniel Kilgore extended through 2017

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Friday, February 28th, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

Good morning everyone, sorry for the late Nuggets this morning. Yesterday, the San Francisco 49ers extended center Daniel Kilgore and some very ridiculous people did a lot of very ridiculous "reporting" on a plane ride. I cannot believe the kind of coverage that was given to that and I applaud Jed York for his Tweets on the matter, which were pretty awesome, I think. If you missed them, they're here and here.

But I can sit here and talk about the silliness of this stuff and the craziness of the Bay Area media all day ... so I won't. Instead, I think we'll just focus on Kilgore. I'm not sold on him as the center of the future or anything, but I think giving him a contract extension now -- at a reasonable rate, of course -- is the best course of action as a safety net, at the very least.
