49ers, OL Tom Compton agree to reworked contract, per report

Sep 4, 2020 at 9:14 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers and Tom Compton have agreed to a reworked contract, which drops the offensive lineman's base salary from $2.15 million to $1.05 million, making the additional $1.1 million available via bonuses.

News of the restructure was first reported by Field Yates of ESPN.


San Francisco agreed to terms on a one-year deal with Compton in March and officially announced the signing in April. The offensive lineman has been competing for the starting right guard job. The move may indicate that the 49ers plan to start Daniel Brunskill at that spot.

Washington made Compton a sixth-round selection out of South Dakota in 2012. He has 99 game appearances and 34 starts through his eight NFL seasons. The offensive lineman also spent time with the New York Jets, Minnesota Vikings, Chicago Bears, and Atlanta Falcons.

Compton started five games with the Jets last season before landing on injured reserve on December 28, 2019. He had a career-high 14 starts at left guard with the Vikings in 2018, missing two games with a knee injury.

The San Francisco 49ers are among several teams that have held pre-draft virtual meetings with former Michigan running back Chris Evans. The news was brought to us by Danish journalist Søren Hansen, who was the first to report the date of Justin Fields' second pro day. "Michigan's RB Chris Evans has had zoom calls with the 49ers, Bengals, Patriots, Vikings, Giants and Chiefs," reads a translated tweet by Hansen. "Did not get much playing time in college and sat out in 2019, but is a great back and a good receiver who had a strong Pro Day. Interesting name for the bottom of the third day of the draft." Evans (5-11, 211) carried the football 16 times for just 73 yards

Private coach John Beck, a former NFL quarterback who played for then-offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan in Washington, worked with quarterback Justin Fields of Ohio State this offseason. Beck remains close with Shanahan, and has been working with quarterback Trey Lance of North Dakota State in recent weeks. That is no coincidence. Fields and Lance are among the most likely prospects to be selected No. 3 overall by the San Francisco 49ers. ESPN's Dan Graziano reports that Lance has been working with Beck at the Niners' request. San Francisco provided Beck with a list of drills it wanted to see from Lance, which means it was heavily involved in the planning of Monday's



DUI described as a 'transitional event' for Mac Jones, potential 49ers draft pick

Much has been made of Mac Jones' DUI in 2017. Some would say that not enough has been made of it while evaluating the former Alabama quarterback's character. However, a recent feature from NFL.com sheds some light on the incident and how it altered Jones' path. At the time, Jones was a redshirt freshman and the third quarterback on the depth chart. In the very early hours of November 3, 2017, Jones was involved in a car accident, underwent a sobriety test, and was then arrested for driving under the influence. He was also charged with improper ID by a minor. Fortunately, no one was injured in the incident. "We are disappointed in



Former NFL QB explains why criticisms of Justin Fields, potential 49ers draft pick, are 'bogus'

No one is questioning Justin Fields' athleticism. Some question the former Ohio State quarterback's ability to transition from the college game to the pros quickly. Mark Sanchez recently joined The Pat McAfee Show and explained why Fields' ability to learn an NFL playbook might not take as long as some might be anticipating. Maybe all of his skeptics, who want to find ways to bring the quarterback down, are wrong. "For Justin, this guy, Dr. Goldman, he's a sports psychologist; I talked to him yesterday," Sanchez said (h/t to Jordan Cohn of 95.7 The Game). "He has some interesting
