Dolphins acquired C Daniel Kilgore from the 49ers.
The teams are swapping seventh-round picks as "compensation." The 49ers just signed Kilgore to a three-year extension in February, but their signing of Weston Richburg made him expendable. For the Dolphins, Kilgore will slide in as the immediate replacement for Mike Pouncey. A longtime reserve who became a full-time starter in 2016, Kilgore has never been a Pro Football Focus star. He's cheap and will gobble up snaps for the rebuilding Dolphins. Mar 15 - 1:42 PM

49ers C Daniel Kilgore's new deal includes $7 million in guarantees.

The three-year deal is worth "nearly $12 million" according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It is a good contract for an at best solid player. Kilgore is now under contract through his age-33 season.

49ers re-signed C Daniel Kilgore to a three-year contract.

This was one of the 49ers' top priorities after re-signing Jimmy Garoppolo. Kilgore held his own in his first year as a 16-game starter, grading out as a top-20 run blocking center at PFF. The 49ers value Kilgore's leadership and veteran presence in the middle of their line. Kilgore's new deal locks him up through his age-33 season.
Feb 14 - 4:32 PM

The Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows reports the 49ers have discussed an extension with impending free agent C Daniel Kilgore.

The 49ers locked up Jimmy Garoppolo and DE Cassius Marsh last week, but they still have work to do before free agency opens with Kilgore apparently near the top of the list. The center held his own over 16 starts in 2017.

Updating a previous item, 49ers C Daniel Kilgore suffered a torn hamstring in the Week 14 loss to the Jets.

It was initially reported Kilgore suffered a knee injury. He was placed on season-ending I.R. on Tuesday. Kilgore should be fine for a normal offseason.

49ers placed C Daniel Kilgore on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

Kilgore started every game until injuring his knee in Sunday's loss to the Jets. It's not a huge loss for the 49ers, as Kilgore has been amongst the worst pivots in the league. One week shy of his 29th birthday, he probably won't be back as a starter next season.

49ers activated C Daniel Kilgore (ankle) from the reserve/PUP list.

The 49ers plan to move Kilgore along slowly after missing the first 12 weeks. Marcus Martin is expected to start Sunday, but has graded as the second-worst center in PFF's ratings. Kilgore will regain his starting job when healthy.

49ers C Daniel Kilgore (PUP, ankle) is no longer in a walking boot.

Kilgore was seen snapping to Colin Kaepernick before last week's game. Along with the trade of backup Nick Easton, Kilgore's activity suggests he will be ready to return as soon as eligible Week 7. Marcus Martin has struggled mightily in place of Kilgore the first four weeks.

49ers placed C Daniel Kilgore (leg, ankle) on the reserve/PUP list.

Kilgore remains in a walking boot. He broke his leg last season, and underwent ankle surgery in June. Marcus Martin should man center in Kilgore's absence. The earliest he can return is Week 7. Kilgore believes he'll be ready when first eligible.

49ers C Daniel Kilgore (leg, ankle) is questionable for Week 1.

Kilgore underwent ankle surgery at some point before training camp, after fracturing his leg last season. He’s reportedly ahead of schedule, but his availability won’t be known until at least the middle of training camp. Marcus Martin has been getting reps at center in Kilgore’s absence.

49ers C Daniel Kilgore's return timetable has been "pushed back" following a fractured left leg suffered last October.

Kilgore broke his left leg in Week 7 of last season. He's had ample time to recover, but recently needed surgery on his ankle. Coach Jim Tomsula indicated Kilgore isn't expected back until "after the middle of camp." This is yet another blow to a 49ers offensive line that will lack continuity in 2015.

49ers placed C Daniel Kilgore and CB Chris Cook on season-ending injured reserve.

S Ray Ventrone was re-signed in a corresponding move. Kilgore broke a bone in his left leg during the 49ers' loss to Denver Week 7. San Francisco will hope third-round rookie Marcus Martin (knee) is ready following the team's Week 8 bye. Cook suffered a hamstring injury against the Broncos Week 7.

49ers C Daniel Kilgore (leg) is out for the season.

Kilgore broke a bone in his left leg during Sunday night's loss at Denver. The first-year starter had been holding up well as he replaced Jonathan Goodwin, earning a top-12 grade from PFF. The 49ers will try to rush third-round rookie Marcus Martin (knee) into the starting lineup following the bye.

49ers C Daniel Kilgore suffered a broken leg in Sunday night's loss to the Broncos.

Kilgore had played every snap this season for the Niners, earning strong grades in run blocking. Now his season is in jeopardy. UDFA rookie Dillon Farrell replaced Kilgore in the lineup Sunday night, but the Niners will try to get third-round rookie Marcus Martin (knee) back after the bye.

49ers C Daniel Kilgore was carted off in Sunday night's Week 7 game against the Broncos with a left leg/ankle injury.

It's another blow to a 49ers offensive line that's already down RT Anthony Davis and LG Mike Iupati. Kilgore had been off to a strong start this season, grading out as a top-ten center by Pro Football Focus. UDFA Dillon Farrell has replaced him in the lineup. Third-round pick Marcus Martin (knee) could return after the 49ers' Week 8 bye.
