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.

Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff. I know this was a big topic last year and things don't seem to be going any better this year, as far as from the injury standpoint, but I mean, can you explain this away, the injuries to RB Jeff Wilson Jr., OL Justin Skule and DB Tarvarius Moore as bad luck, or is there anything to suggest that something else is going on? "I mean, I can tell you what happened to the three of them. You know, Jeff got hurt sitting down in a chair in the locker room and he got out of it and his knee got in an awkward position.

PFF lists Jimmy Garoppolo's contract as 49ers' worst, Jason Verrett's as the best

Brad Spielberger of Pro Football Focus examined the NFC and named each team's best and worst contracts. He only looked at veteran contracts because, obviously, rookie deals offer great value. What makes a good contract? Value compared to production. It can't take up a lot of a team's salary cap, regardless of the position. However, you have to compare the contract to others who play the same position. "If an elite quarterback was making $30 million per year, with where the market is at this point at quarterback, that's great value relative to the position market," wrote Spielberger. So, which players are listed for the San Francisco 49ers? The best

For The Record - 49ers CB Deommodore Lenoir

My apologies for the delay on my end for the two-week hiatus--life comes at you fast! I plan on finishing off the "For The Record" series with the remaining players along with a full evaluation of the 49ers' draft class with consideration to the recent training camp injuries (safety Tarvarius Moore, offensive lineman Justin Skule). While NFL Draft pundits and fans alike can give instant reactions to their team's player selections, it's easy to forget that the true value of the picks cannot be fully assessed until after a couple of seasons. Some players become instant starters (Nick Bosa), while others remain works in progress (Javon Kinlaw). Having said that, I want to pull out the receipts on what draft analysts were saying prior to the draft, along with their

With a new NFL season around the corner, coaching staffs are starting to get a feel for the teams they will be marching into battle with. The San Francisco 49ers have spent the last few months solidifying their roster from top to bottom. With many key players returning from injury, the 49ers have a strong group, with most of the starting positions locked up. There will be several depth positions available for grabs. After a disastrous 2020 season, the 49ers learned that quality depth at all position groups is critical. Here are a few players who find themselves on the roster bubble and will all need to stand out in training camp if they want to earn a roster spot. Josh Rosen, QB
