At least two San Francisco 49ers players—quarterback Brock Purdy and cornerback Deommodore Lenoir—have received performance-based bonuses from the NFL for their contributions during the 2023 season. Both ranked among the top 25 performance-based pay distributions.

Purdy earned $739,795, while Lenoir received $790,744.

Under the Performance-Based Pay program, a fund is created and used as a supplemental form of player compensation based on a comparison of playing time to salary. Players become eligible to receive a bonus distribution in any regular season in which they play at least one official down.

Basically, players with higher playtime percentages and lower salaries benefit most from the pool.

Purdy threw for a franchise-record 4,280 passing yards in his second NFL season while adding 31 touchdowns compared to 11 interceptions. His 113.0 passer rating led the NFL.

In his third NFL season, Lenoir recorded a career-high 84 tackles, including one for a loss. He also hauled in a career-high three interceptions and had 10 passes defensed.

Iowa State quarterback Brock Purdy didn't capture the spotlight entering the 2022 NFL Draft, with most scouts overlooking the prospect. That paved the way for the San Francisco 49ers to select him with the draft's final pick. Since then, Purdy has proven his worth by leading the Niners to two NFC Championship Games and a Super Bowl appearance. In February, he nearly emerged as a Super Bowl champion. However, some late-game heroics from Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs thwarted the 49ers' championship hopes. Purdy's journey from "Mr. Irrelevant" to NFL standout hasn't gone unnoticed.

Deebo Samuel and Brock Purdy are why the 49ers can afford to pay Brandon Aiyuk

It's evident that the San Francisco 49ers engaged in long-term financial planning. Much discussion has centered around the feasibility of the team committing significant financial resources to two wide receivers, Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel.

Jeff Garcia has been impressed by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy in his two seasons with the team. As the last overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, Purdy was thrust into the spotlight after the 49ers faced quarterback injuries and proved his NFL mettle. While some doubts lingered after his rookie season, Purdy's resilience shone through. Despite starting only five regular-season games, he guided the 49ers to the NFC Championship Game, where, unfortunately, he suffered a torn ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in his throwing arm. Garcia was among those who wondered whether Purdy could maintain his success into his second season. Last year, coming off surgery, Purdy set a single-season franchise record with 4,280 passing yards. His impressive performance
