49ers sign 5th-round draft pick Colton McKivitz to 4-year deal

Jun 19, 2020 at 5:03 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers announced on Friday that the team has signed offensive lineman Colton McKivitz, who played college football at West Virginia, to his four-year rookie deal. He becomes the first 49ers draft pick to sign with the team as four remain unsigned.

San Francisco selected McKivitz in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft with the No. 153 overall pick.

McKivitz was a four-year starter with the Mountaineers. He primarily played right tackle but anchored the left side during his senior year and even has experience playing right guard.

"Personally, (I think) I'm a prick," McKivitz responded in April when asked to describe his style of play on the football field. "I like to get inside guys' heads. I think that's one of the biggest things. If I can get him to think about me rather than [the offense], then I know I'm winning. That's the one thing I really enjoy about it."

Thanks to the NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA), which was ratified in March and extends through the 2030 season, all rookie contracts are for a length of four years.

The total value of McKivitz's four-year contract is believed to be $3,624,780, or very close to that amount, according to OverTheCap.com. That includes a signing bonus of $329,780 and a 2020 salary-cap figure of $692,445.

10 quarterbacks earn more than 49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo after Patrick Mahomes' record deal

Does anyone remember way back to when Jimmy Garoppolo became the NFL's highest-paid quarterback? Yes, you have to look all the way back to 2018 — you know, two years and some change — to when the San Francisco 49ers quarterback inked a then-record five-year deal with up to $137.5 million. What a bargain. That's not what some thought when the deal was signed. At the time, it seemed like a lot of money for a player who had started just seven games. Of course, he had won each of them. Since then, 10 quarterbacks have leaped past Garoppolo when it comes to an average annual salary. The most recent is the reigning Super Bowl MVP, Kansas City Chiefs

George Kittle's 2020 salary could provide incentive to finalize deal sooner rather than later

San Francisco 49ers fans are growing increasingly tired of a lack of significant news on the George Kittle front — specifically when it comes to his new contract. During a typical offseason, a new deal would likely be done, and the All-Pro tight end would be locked up for the foreseeable future. This isn't a typical offseason, and these aren't typical times. That has made things increasingly difficult and is likely the cause of the contract delay. There is no telling how next year's salary cap will look. It wasn't too long ago that everyone was sure the cap would jump significantly, thanks to a new Collective Bargaining Agreement and impending television deals. COVID-19 changed all of that. While the NFL is pushing forward as if

Execs, players, coaches pick George Kittle over Travis Kelce as the NFL's best tight end

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler polled 50 league executives, coaches, scouts, and players, asking them to identify the NFL's best tight end. The result, as far as the top choice, probably won't come as a surprise to San Francisco 49ers fans. It's George Kittle. But that doesn't mean the top spot was absent of debate. "Voters gave their best 10 to 15 players at a position," explained Fowler, "then we compiled the results and ranked candidates based on number of top-10 votes, composite average, interviews and research. We had several ties, so we broke them by isolating the two-man matchup with additional voting and
