49ers signing 3rd-round draft pick Ambry Thomas to 4-yr, $4.8 million deal

Jul 23, 2021 at 6:37 AM--


According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the San Francisco 49ers have reached an agreement with cornerback Ambry Thomas on his four-year rookie deal. The 49ers selected him out of Michigan in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft with the No. 102 overall pick.


The signing leaves quarterback Trey Lance, the No. 3 overall pick, as the 49ers only unsigned draft pick.

Thomas registered 38 tackles, three tackles for a loss, three passes defensed, and three interceptions through 12 games as a junior in 2019, per Sports Reference. He has recorded 54 tackles, 3.5 tackles for a loss, three passes defensed, four interceptions, and a forced fumble through his three collegiate seasons. The defender did not play in 2020.

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 Thomas' four-year contract is set to be $4,785,850, per OverTheCap.com. That includes a signing bonus of $840,616 and a 2021 salary-cap figure of $870,154.

The San Francisco 49ers defense should be much improved with the returns of edge rushers Nick Bosa and Dee Ford. Both are coming off significant injuries, missing most of last season. Ford appeared in just one game before a back injury sidelined him. Bosa's 2020 campaign ended with an ACL injury during Week 2. Earlier this week, Ford said he expects to be on a pitch count during Sunday's regular-season opener against the Detroit Lions. That's not uncommon for players coming off an injury, and the veteran pass rusher hasn't been an every-down player during his time with the 49ers, even when he was healthier. Instead, Ford mostly went onto the field during situational downs,
