The San Francisco 49ers announced the signing of rookie defensive end Kentavius Street, who played college football at N.C. State, to a four-year deal. He was selected in the fourth round with the No. 128 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

The 49ers have now signed four of their nine draft selections. The team signed rookies Tarvarius Moore, Jullian Taylor, and Richie James on Saturday.

Street will not play for San Francisco in 2018. He tore his ACL in March during a private workout with the New York Giants. The injury typically takes about nine months to fully recover.

Street is strong in run support and has shown some ability to contribute to the pass rush. In four seasons at N.C. State, he registered 121 combined tackles, 19.5 for a loss, and 9.5 sacks. 5.5 of that sack total came in 2016 alone with 3.5 coming in 2017. Street was a three-year starter for the Wolfpack.

Thanks to the 2011 CBA, all rookie contracts are now for a length of four years. Only first-round selections come with an option for a fifth year, which does not apply to Street. Having set numbers for each spot eliminates the need to negotiate salaries and only leaves items like bonus payment terms, roster bonus allocations, and other miscellaneous structural items.

The total value of Street's four-year contract is believed to be $3,070,200, or very close to that amount, according to Over the Cap. That includes a signing bonus of $610,200 and a 2018 salary cap figure of $632,550.
