OG Joshua Garnett signed his rookie contract with the San Francisco 49ers on the day before the team needed to report to training camp. While the numbers for the contract were already known thanks to the CBA and all rookie contracts having a set length and set numbers, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle confirmed those numbers.

While Garnett has participated in the 49ers' offseason program, he had to miss the early portions due to NFL rules that prohibit rookies from participating in offseason work until their school's senior class has finished their terms. He has been participating in all training camp practices since Sunday.
The 49ers traded back into the first round to select Garnett out of Stanford with the 28th overall selection. Garnett was the 2015 John Outland Trophy Winner, an award given to the most outstanding interior lineman of the year. He is expected to compete for the starting job at right guard and was considered to be the best run blocker in this year's draft.
