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.

It would cost a lot, but it would also mean an opportunity to fix the mistake of choosing Solomon Thomas over one of the rookie quarterbacks available in the 2017 draft. And no, I'm not counting C.J. Beathard. The question becomes what the Texans might ask in return for Watson, should

The San Francisco 49ers are moving forward with the assumption that this year's salary cap will be set at $175 million. It will probably be a bit higher, but general manager John Lynch would rather start with the floor. "Anything that we get (above $175 million), I think, is going to be a bonus and gravy, and will help us," John Lynch told Tim Kawakami of The Athletic on The TK Show podcast. "But if it's 175, we'll make it work, and I think we can keep a lot of these players together. You can't keep everyone, but I think we can prioritize. We'll have a very good plan, and I feel really good about our team, moving forward." Of course, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's
