49ers sign 6th-round draft pick Charlie Woerner to rookie deal

Jul 27, 2020 at 9:37 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers will have their entire 2020 draft class signed by the end of the day. Tight end Charlie Woerner, who played college football at Georgia, will sign his four-year rookie deal after passing a physical in Santa Clara, according to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area. The 49ers selected him in the sixth round of the 2020 NFL Draft with the No. 190 overall pick.

Update: The 49ers officially announced the signing of Woerner.


Woerner caught 34 passes for 376 yards and a touchdown in four seasons with the Bulldogs.

"I kind of see myself as a do it all guy," Woerner said in April after being drafted by the 49es. "A guy who can do anything and really just going to do what the team asks me to do. That's what I did at Georgia, and I'll do whatever it takes to win a ball game. I'm excited to go to the 49ers and win some ball games."

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. First-round selections come with a team-executable fifth-year option, which does not apply to Woerner.

The total value of Woerner's four-year contract is believed to be $3,476,032, or very close to that amount, according to OverTheCap.com. That includes a signing bonus of $181,032 and a 2020 salary-cap figure of $655,258.

It didn't take long for the San Francisco 49ers' sixth-round pick, tight end Charlie Woerner out of Georgia, to impress All-Pro tight end George Kittle. And it wasn't seeing him haul in some deep pass from a 49ers quarterback during the player-organized workouts in Tennessee that did it. In fact, it was when Woerner got a little bored with the passing reps. Kittle joined the Pardon My Take podcast this week and shared the exact moment when he knew he and Woerner were going to work well together. "I'm excited. Charlie's a good dude," Kittle shared. "We were actually running routes together, and he was like, 'Hey, this passing stuff is kind of boring. When are we going to start talking about run game?' "And I was like, 'You're my guy. I needed

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch sounded optimistic on Tuesday that a deal with the team's All-Pro tight end, George Kittle, would get done — eventually. "George is such a great fit for what we do," Lynch said on KNBR. "He's a tremendous player. I'm sitting here looking at the vision statement for what we want in a player, and George checks every box. He's tremendous. He's what we want to be. I think it would be silly not to figure that out, so we're going to do our best to do just that."
