49ers Notebook: MyCole Pruitt’s contract includes $500k guaranteed, remaining practices in jeopardy

Jun 8, 2021 at 8:41 PM--

Here are other San Francisco 49ers-related storylines that might interest you.

Today's biggest news was the injuries to offensive lineman Justin Skule and safety Tarvarius Moore. Obviously, Skule is done for the year after suffering a torn ACL during Monday's practice. Internally, there is hope that Moore might be available by the end of the season, but he is expected to miss at least a significant amount of time after suffering a torn Achilles on Monday.

Yes, those are two significant injuries during the same practice. The 49ers are in the third and final week of organized team activities and have one practice remaining — a Thursday session — before next week's mandatory three-day minicamp.

Following news of the injuries, San Francisco canceled its scheduled practice and media availability for Tuesday.

Contract details for Pruitt, Jones, and Burgess

The contract details for several recently-signed 49ers players have been revealed by

Tight end Mycole Pruitt signed a one-year deal with the Niners on June 2. It has a base salary of $990,000 and a prorated bonus of $137,500. However, it only counts $987,500 against the cap. The most interesting thing about the contract is the $500,000 that is guaranteed. That would indicate that the team expects Pruitt to make the 53-man roster.

San Francisco signed wide receiver Andy Jones to a one-year deal on July 1. His deal includes a base salary of $850,000 with no guaranteed money.

New linebacker James Burgess will earn a base salary of $990,000 on his one-year deal with a cap hit of $850,000 due to the veteran salary exception.

Wide receiver Bennie Fowler will also earn a base salary of $990,000 on his one-year deal. The contract has a cap hit of $850,000 due to the veteran salary exception. currently lists the 49ers with about $17.75 million in salary-cap space, which doesn't include Monday's signing of safety Tony Jefferson.

Team may cancel remaining practices

According to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle, the 49ers may opt to cancel their remaining offseason program practices following Monday's injuries.

Wrote Branch: "The 49ers canceled Tuesday's practice and scheduled media availability and had a 'team-building activity,' a team spokesman said. There is a strong possibility the 49ers will cancel the rest of their offseason program, which was scheduled to end with next week's three-day mandatory minicamp."

That could mean 49ers players won't return to the practice field until training camp at the end of July.

Charges against Kevin Givens dropped

I only note this because I was recently asked about it. Some news from last week that you may have missed if you didn't read our article on three potential stand-out defenders is that the charges against defensive lineman Kevin Givens have been dropped. The defender was arrested in February on a charge of second-degree assault.

According to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area, the situation has been resolved. Again, it's not recent news, but it may have slipped through the cracks.

Passing stats for 49ers QBs Jimmy Garoppolo, Trey Lance through five practices

The San Francisco 49ers have gone through five practices in training camp. Today's will be the first padded session, so expect things to get a little more physical. Head coach Kyle Shanahan insists there is no quarterback competition brewing in Santa Clara. Jimmy Garoppolo is still slated to be the starter come Week 1 against the Detroit Lions. "What I told Jimmy right when we made the trade is, 'I don't know any rookie who can come and beat you out if you're playing at his best self,'" Shanahan told Peter King last week. The 49ers drafted Trey Lance out of North Dakota State with the No. 3 overall pick. The rookie is the quarterback of the future,

A look at the details of Fred Warner's contract extension with the 49ers

Soon after news of the deal broke, Pro Football Talk released the details of linebacker Fred Warner's massive contract extension with the San Francisco 49ers. The five-year deal has a potential value of $95.225 million, including $40.5 million guaranteed. That would earn the All-Pro linebacker about $19 million a year. Interestingly, the contract's final two years are voidable, so the 49ers can choose to pick up those years if they find themselves in a healthy salary-cap situation. If they don't, then they have some options. Looking only at the extension itself and not 2021, which is the final year of his rookie deal, here is a year-by-year breakdown,

Fred Warner's Contract Extension is a Team-Friendly Deal for 49ers

On July 6th, I gave my initial thoughts on what a Fred Warner extension could potentially look like and just two weeks later, the linebacker signed a massive extension to stay with the 49ers. Warner's five-year deal has a potential value of $95.225 million, including $40.5 million guaranteed. The extension kicks in during the 2022 season, not the upcoming year, keeping Warner's current cap hit the same at a very reasonable $3.636 million. Per Spotrac, Warner's cap hits are $8.164 million, $18.525 million, $22.1 million, $24.45 million, and $21.986 million from 2022–2026, respectively. He earns $40.5 million in total guarantees to go
