49ers sign 1st-round draft pick Mike McGlinchey, per report

Jul 22, 2018 at 7:42 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have signed rookie tackle Mike McGlinchey, who played college football at Notre Dame. He was selected in the first round with the No. 9 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Tom Pelissero of NFL Network first reported the news.


49ers rookies and veterans report to training camp on Wednesday with their first practice scheduled for Thursday.

McGlinchey's signing leaves second-round selection Dante Pettis as the only unsigned draft pick from this year's class.

The 6-foot-8, 315-pound McGlinchey has experience at both tackle spots during his time at Notre Dame. In three years with the Fighting Irish, McGlinchey started 39 straight games. With McGlinchey at left tackle in 2017, Notre Dame had the third-best rushing offense in the nation in yards per carry (6.25) and the seventh-best in rushing yards per game (269.3).

McGlinchey ranked as the nation's top run-blocking offensive tackle last season and the third-best overall.

Upon drafting McGlinchey, the 49ers promptly traded starting right tackle Trent Brown to the New England Patriots to move up 48 spots from the No. 143 overall pick to No. 95, where they selected Southern Mississippi defensive back Tarvarius Moore.

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 applies to McGlinchy. 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 McGlinchey's four-year contract is believed to be $18,341,876, or very close to that amount, according to Over the Cap. That includes a signing bonus of $11,419,544 and a 2018 salary cap figure of $3,334,886.

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo hoping for a 'quick resolution' once healthy, per report

There has been some chatter that the San Francisco 49ers might be willing to hold onto Jimmy Garoppolo if they can't find a trade partner for the veteran quarterback or if an interested team tries to lowball the Niners. San Francisco had hoped to trade Garoppolo in March. The quarterback undergoing shoulder surgery halted all trade talks. Then the number of quarterback-needy teams greatly diminished. 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan have repeatedly indicated that they expect Garoppolo to be healthy enough to throw again by early July. We're almost to that point. On Saturday, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported that Garoppolo's

Another NFL wide receiver has seen his bank account grow this offseason. Earlier today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Washington Commanders are signing Terry McLaurin to a three-year extension worth up to $71 million in new money with $53.2 million guaranteed. That's nearly $23.7 million annually in potential new cash and about $17.7 million in new guaranteed money. Meanwhile, everyone is still waiting to see how the San Francisco 49ers resolve their situation with their star wideout, Deebo Samuel. It wasn't that long ago that he requested to be traded after watching several of his peers earn big paydays this offseason. Many, including star tight end George Kittle,



PFF's 2020 re-draft has 49ers passing on Javon Kinlaw for cornerback help

Fans like to play "What If," wondering what things might be like had their favorite team opted for a different choice at a pivotal moment. Fans aren't the only ones, though. Take former San Francisco 49ers safety Jaquiski Tartt, now with the Philadelphia Eagles, for instance. His missed interception of a Matthew Stafford pass intended for receiver Van Jefferson in the NFC title game might have sent the Niners back to the Super Bowl for the second time in three years. "That's a play I should make in my sleep, and I didn't make it," Tartt said after the game. "... I know that was a big play in the game, a big opportunity for me and for the team, and as a player, I just feel like I let my brothers down." Had Tartt made the play, maybe the 49ers win their sixth
