The San Francisco 49ers won on multiple fronts Sunday afternoon. First, beating their NFC West rivals, the Seattle Seahawks, 27-7.

Secondly, the team locked down another key piece of their defensive core as linebacker Dre Greenlaw signed an extension with the 49ers Sunday.

The two-year deal extends Greenlaw’s time with San Francisco until 2025, keeping the trio of him, Fred Warner and Azeez Al-Shaair together for the time being.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Sunday that the 2019 fifth-round pick’s new deal is worth close to $19 million with over $10 million in guarantees.

“I’m happy to be a part of this organization for two more years,” Greenlaw said after the game, via Tom Dierberger of CSNBayArea.com. “We’ve got a great group of people. I’m excited to see how far we can get, try to get a couple championships in these two years, too. . . . Just to not worry about anything financial, just to be able to lock in and focus on playing. Now I can just play ball, don’t have to worry about getting injured. Whatever I do, I just go and do it hard.”

Greenlaw was on the final year of a four-year rookie contract he signed after the 49ers selected him in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

He led the way for the 49ers Sunday with eight tackles against the Seahawks. The 25-year-old linebacker has 212 tackles, two sacks, and two interceptions over his entire career.
