The San Francisco 49ers recently finalized deals with three players from their 2024 draft class, officially announcing the signings today. They were cornerback Renardo Green from Florida State, running back Isaac Guerendo from Louisville, and wide receiver Jacob Cowing from Arizona. Their contract details can be found here.

Additionally, the 49ers confirmed that three other rookies from their recent draft class have inked their four-year deals. These players are offensive lineman Dominick Puni from Kansas, safety Malik Mustapha from Wake Forest, and linebacker Tatum Bethune from Florida State.

With these signings, wide receiver Ricky Pearsall of Florida and offensive lineman Jarrett Kingston of USC remain as the only unsigned players from the 49ers' 2024 draft class.

Under the NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA), all rookie contracts are set for a duration of four years. However, first-round selections come with a team option for a fifth year, a provision that applies only to Pearsall in San Francisco's case.
