Will Redmond signs 49ers rookie contract

Jun 23, 2016 at 3:57 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers signed third-round selection Will Redmond today. The cornerback has signed his four-year contract with the team.

Thanks to the 2011 CBA, all rookie contracts are now for a length of four years. Only first-round selections come with an option for a fifth year, which does not apply to Redmond. Having set numbers for each spot eliminates the need to negotiate salary and only leaves items like bonus payment terms, roster bonus allocations, and other miscellaneous structural items, which is likely what held up Redmond's deal for so long.

Redmond suffered an ACL tear during a Mississippi State practice on October 22, continuing a trend by 49ers general manager Trent Baalke of selecting injured players. However, when speaking to reporters following being drafted, Redmond stated, "I expect to play in 2016," and Baalke said that he is comfortable that the cornerback will be ready in time for the team's training camp.

Redmond could be one of the 49ers' most intriguing selections if he gets completely healthy enough to contribute this season. "In the midst of injury row, Will Redmond saw his final season torpedoed by injury after seven games when he tore his ACL. By that point he had allowed just one touchdown and a passer rating of only 41.0 when targeted by opposing quarterbacks," said Sam Monson of Pro Football Focus.

While Redmond has taken part in the 49ers' offseason program, has been limited as he recovers from his injury.

The signing leaves OG Joshua Garnett as the only unsigned 49ers rookie.

Below is the projected contract for Redmond, per salary cap site Spotrac.com. However, his actually contract may differ ever so slightly.

CB Will Redmond, Mississippi State
Round 3, Pick 5
Total Value: $3,510,401
Signing Bonus: $872,555
2016 Cap: $668,139

By Kirk Larrabee
Nov 27

It was a strange week for the San Francisco 49ers, who had to work through an unusual schedule that saw them arrive home from their Monday night game in Mexico City in the early morning hours on Tuesday, followed by Thanksgiving on Thursday. Still, they managed to work through it and prepare themselves to play against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, and in the end they came out on top with a 13-0 win. How did the 49ers work through that schedule? We'll look at that in this version of 49ers Notebook, along with some postgame thoughts from head coach Kyle Shanahan on the running back situation, a look at an impressive streak the 49ers snapped on Sunday, and much more.

The 49ers' Defense is Becoming Elite Again: 5 Observations about Saints-49ers

By JD Salazar
Nov 28

This 2022 iteration of the 49ers is endlessly fascinating to watch. One of the best teams in football one week, getting humiliated the next. Back to the future, forward with the past. But as turbulent and ramshackle as it's been, the 49ers are morphing into a team ready to dominate in the playoffs, just as head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have always believed. Here are 5 observations from yesterday's win over the Saints. 1. The Scoreless Streak Extends to 4… In the second half of the past 4 games, the 49ers haven't allowed a point. None. Zip. Zilch. Nada. The Rams, Chargers, Cardinals, and now Saints have all failed to crack the scoreboard once after halftime. While only this last contest has been a pure shutout, that mark remains



Ndamukong Suh says decision came down to Eagles, 49ers

This past week, defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh signed with the Philadelphia Eagles, making his debut on Sunday in a 17-16 win over the Indianapolis Colts. He told Pro Football Talk that he picked the Eagles because he sought another championship. Suh had another option, though, admitting that he could have signed with the San Francisco 49ers. "Suh told PFT by phone after Sunday's 17-16 win over the Colts in his debut with the Eagles that his decision came down to Philadelphia and San Francisco," wrote Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. "Suh said that he was attracted to the 49ers because of the presence of defensive line coach Kris



49ers' Psych Ward ready for the Cardinals' challenge

By Wayne P. Brown

This week against the Arizona Cardinals could be interesting for the San Francisco 49ers secondary. In the off-season, I remember creating a name for two of the 49ers' defensive backs—Jimmie Ward and Charvarius "Mooney" Ward. I called these two to the Psych Ward, and this week against the Arizona Cardinals, they may receive their first patient. Before the season began, safety Jimmie Ward went on the injured reserve due to a hamstring injury. Since his return, the nine-year veteran has been asked to play in the 49ers' nickel back position after starting outside corner Emmanuel Moseley was lost for the season to an ACL tear, and starting nickel corner Deommodore Lenoir was moved outside to replace Moseley. Ward has been targeted 16 times by opposing quarterbacks, allowing
