Mar 25, 2020 at 5:07 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers brought back a key component in the defensive-line rotation, re-signing defensive end Ronald Blair to a one-year deal last week. The team finally announced the move on Monday, and the contract details have emerged.

Blair is returning from a torn ACL suffered in November against the Seattle Seahawks. The defender posted a video of himself running before the start of free agency, showing that he is on his way to a full recovery.

"His versatility and playmaking ability along with his strength of character off the field make him special," general manager John Lynch said of Blair via a statement. "Ronnie's work ethic makes us confident he will return to form this season."

Below is the contract breakdown of Blair's deal, courtesy of The total value of the deal is nearly $2.3 million.

$2.16 million base salary (all guaranteed)
$137,500 prorated bonus
$1.0475 million salary-cap hit

Blair's salary-cap hit is lower than his salary because the team opted to use the new "veteran salary benefit" on the defender. It enables an NFL team to exclude up to $1.25 million from the cap for a player with at least four years of experience.

Some even feel a new deal could fetch the All-Pro an annual salary up to $20 million. Naturally, when one person starts talking about those kinds of numbers, everyone does. That would shatter the ceiling of the tight end market. Right now, the top salaries for the position group remain under $11 million. To nearly double that when next year's salary cap situation remains uncertain might not be in the San Francisco 49ers' best interests, and at least one person doesn't believe it will come to that.

Fred Warner's contract named the 49ers' most team-friendly by Bleacher Report

The San Francisco 49ers are big on building through the draft, and that can lead to several team-friendly contracts for some young up-and-coming NFL stars. Now and then, you miss on a high draft pick, though. The Reuben Foster selection in 2017 forced the 49ers to spend big on Kwon Alexander when the team was forced to part ways with the troubled young linebacker. The emergence of another young linebacker may have made up for that, though. San Francisco made Fred Warner a third-round draft pick a year after the Foster selection, and that rookie contract has been named the team's best-value by Bleacher Report's Brent
