49ers sign 2nd-round draft pick Aaron Banks to 4-yr, $7 million deal

May 13, 2021 at 9:02 AM--


According to ESPN's Field Yates, the San Francisco 49ers have signed offensive lineman Aaron Banks, who played college football at Notre Dame, to his four-year rookie deal. The 49ers selected him in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft with the No. 48 overall pick.

The offensive lineman is the first of San Francisco's eight draft picks to sign his contract. Rookies begin a three-day minicamp on Friday.


Banks appeared in 38 games with 31 starts in four years (2017- 20) at Notre Dame. As a senior in 2020, he started all 12 games, including an appearance in the CFP Semi-final. Banks was named First-Team AFCA All-America and Associated Press First-Team All-America as a senior.

The offensive lineman started all 13 games as a junior in 2019 and helped the Irish rank 13th nationally in scoring offense. He played in all 13 games with six starts as a sophomore in 2018 but did not see game action as a freshman in 2017.

Thanks to the NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA), which runs through the 2030 season, all rookie contracts are for a length of four years.

The total value of Banks' four-year contract is believed to be $7,073,616, or very close to that amount, according to OverTheCap.com. That includes a signing bonus of $2,504,448 and a 2021 salary-cap figure of $1,286,112.
