Former Montana State lineman Mike Person agrees to $9 million contract with 49ers

BOZEMAN — Glendive native and former Montana State offensive lineman Mike Person has agreed to three-year contract extension with the San Francisco 49ers, ESPN reported on Sunday.

The deal will reportedly pay Person $9 million, with $3 million guaranteed. Person was set to become an unrestricted free agent next week before signing the deal Monday to stay under contract with the 49ers through the 2021 season.

After signing with the 49ers as a free agent in May, Person, 30, started 16 games at right guard last season despite dealing with various injuries. General manager John Lynch praised Person’s toughness and the versatility he brings to the line with the ability to play center as well as guard.
