Ricky Pearsall signed his rookie contract last week, a four-year deal worth approximately $12.54 million. The San Francisco 49ers selected the wide receiver as the No. 31 overall pick in this year's draft.

Two years ago, quarterback Brock Purdy was the last pick in the draft, No. 262 overall. His rookie deal was for four years, valued at about $3.74 million. Pearsall's signing bonus alone will be worth more than $2 million over the 49ers' franchise quarterback's entire rookie contract.

OverTheCap.com released the breakdown of Pearsall's rookie deal. The first-year wideout will earn a base salary of $795,000 in his first season, gradually increasing each year until reaching its peak of about $2.5 million in 2027.

Pearsall's contract includes a signing bonus of $5.94 million, with his entire base salary of nearly $6.6 million over the length of the deal fully guaranteed. He will take up about 0.8% of the 49ers' salary cap space in 2024.
