Joshua Garnett remains 49ers’ only unsigned rookie

Jul 28, 2016 at 9:13 PM--


There is still a San Francisco 49ers rookie that remains unsigned. While he continues to work out at the team's facility in Santa Clara, Joshua Garnett is the last of the 49ers' 2016 draft class that has not yet signed his rookie contract. He cannot participate in practices until he does so and with the team reporting to training camp on Saturday, the reason for the delay remains a mystery.


A four-year contract valued at over $9.3 million with a nearly $5 million signing bonus awaits him according to salary cap tracking site Spotrac.com. Thanks to the 2011 CBA, all rookie contracts are for the set length of four years with team's having the option to pick up a fifth year on first round selections, which is exactly what the 49ers did this year in the case of Eric Reid. The salary for each selection is generally known as well, making holdouts very rare.

Typically, delays like this are due to items like bonus payment terms, roster bonus allocations, and other miscellaneous structural items. However, two days prior to the team's training camp is cutting it close.

Garnett took part in much of the 49ers' offseason program, only missing an early portion due to NFL rules that prohibit rookies from participating in offseason work until their school's senior class has finished their terms.

The team will hold their first practice on Sunday at 10:25 AM. If Garnett is not to miss any practice time and quickly solidify his spot as the starter at right guard, he has until then to sign.

Garnett was the 28th overall selection by San Francisco after the team moved up to ensure that they did not miss out on picking him. He was the second of the team's two selections in the first round. The other was DE DeForest Buckner, who was selected seventh overall.

Schefter: 49ers, NFL teams may only be allowed 75 to 80 players at training camp

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that NFL teams may be required to limit the number of players who participate in training camps across the league when they begin later this month. At least, they are scheduled to start later this month. That would mean as many as 10 to 15 players from each team's 90-player roster might have to sit out meetings and on-field work. The idea is, of course, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic as the NFL continues to search for ways to increase the safety of its players and the chances of an uninterrupted season. "One source said he believed it's likely that teams will go to camp with 80-man rosters," writes Schefter,

The 2019 season ended just short of the San Francisco 49ers' goal.

Defensive end Nick Bosa was among several players who spoke during this week's State of the Franchise event. He discussed the mindset after last season and why it could mean bad news for opposing teams in 2020. "Just the run we made, it was unbelievable," Bosa told Keiana Martin and Greg Papa during a group discussion.
