OG Joshua Garnett signed his rookie contract with the San Francisco 49ers on the day before the team needed to report to training camp. While the numbers for the contract were already known thanks to the CBA and all rookie contracts having a set length and set numbers, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle confirmed those numbers.

Garnett's four-year rookie contract is worth $9.304 million with $7.585 million guaranteed and a signing bonus of $4.966 million. Being a first-round selection, the 49ers will have an option to pick up a fifth year for the guard when the time comes.


While Garnett has participated in the 49ers' offseason program, he had to miss the early portions due to NFL rules that prohibit rookies from participating in offseason work until their school's senior class has finished their terms. He has been participating in all training camp practices since Sunday.

The 49ers traded back into the first round to select Garnett out of Stanford with the 28th overall selection. Garnett was the 2015 John Outland Trophy Winner, an award given to the most outstanding interior lineman of the year. He is expected to compete for the starting job at right guard and was considered to be the best run blocker in this year's draft.

Signing Brandon Aiyuk to a contract extension should be 49ers' top offseason priority

By David Bonilla

Super Bowl 58 showcased that the San Francisco 49ers' roster has room for improvement despite possessing one of the most talent-rich units in the NFL. The right side of the offensive line could use some reinforcement. The cornerback position opposite Charvarius Ward might need addressing. Additionally, the 49ers' run defense struggled during the postseason. However, the offseason focus should center on wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, the latest star player due for a contract extension. With the team exercising its fifth-year option on the wideout, Aiyuk is signed through the upcoming season. Now, the question remains whether both sides can reach an agreement.
