Fred Warner, Jason Verrett, three other 49ers receive performance-based bonuses

Apr 6, 2021 at 7:29 AM--


Five San Francisco 49ers players earned performance-based bonuses, per a report from NBC Sports Bay Area. They include linebackers Fred Warner and Dre Greenlaw, and defensive backs Jason Verrett and Tarvarius Moore. One offensive lineman, Daniel Brunskill, also earned the additional pay.

Matt Maiocco has the breakdown of how much each earned via the performance-based bonuses.


The performance-based pay program is a collectively-bargained benefit that compensates all players, including rookies, based upon their playing time and salary levels. The money comes from a fund created and used as a supplemental form of player compensation.

Players become eligible for the additional payout in any regular season in which they play at least one official snap. Those with lower salaries who vastly outperformed their pay benefit most from the pool.

Brunskill was an exclusive-rights free agent heading into the offseason, while Verrett was an unrestricted free agent. San Francisco re-signed both players to one-year deals.

49ers CB Jason Verrett also changing his jersey number

Add San Francisco 49ers cornerback Jason Verrett to the list of players changing their jersey numbers this offseason. On April 21, the NFL approved a proposal that relaxes the jersey number rules of certain position groups, opening the door for wide receivers, defensive backs, and some others to wear single-digit numbers. On Monday, safety Jaquiski Tartt revealed that he is switching from No. 29 to No. 26. Of course, that doesn't really fall into the rule change. Verrett, however, is switching from No. 22 to No. 2, the number he wore at TCU. It will be his second number change since joining the 49ers in 2019. His initial number was 27.

With the 2021 NFL Draft officially over, the questions have moved on from who the 49ers are drafting to when these newly drafted rookies will see the field. Last weekend, the 49ers made the bold choice of QB Trey Lance with the No.3 overall pick in the draft. However, just because he was their first selection doesn't mean that he will be the one to see the most playing time out of all the 49ers' rookies. Sitting in front of him is incumbent starter, Jimmy Garoppolo, and the 49ers have made many reassuring remarks that he will remain their starting quarterback in 2021. With that in mind, let's rank the 49ers draftees based on projected playing



Jason Smith throws out wild theory that 49ers could trade Trey Lance for Aaron Rodgers

And here you thought the Aaron Rodgers-to-San Francisco 49ers chatter was over. I'll preface this by saying what Jason Smith of FOX Sports Radio said about the 49ers and the Green Bay Packers quarterback might be the most ridiculous thing you read today. Now that you have been sufficiently warned, brace yourself, and proceed, if you wish. Smith believes San Francisco remains interested in Rodgers, and drafting Trey Lance of North Dakota State with the No. 3 overall pick last week hasn't changed that. Now, any rational reporter or fan clearly understands that the Niners heard about the disgruntled Green Bay quarterback and did their due diligence, as head coach Kyle
