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.

If accurate, it just means that the Patriots are getting everything in order -- just in case a trade happens. It could also mean that the Patriots believe the 49ers are likely to seek a trade. What I've been told, by a reliable source —- @Patriots are working on a new



49ers have no plans to restructure Jimmy Garoppolo's contract, say Shanahan and Lynch

The 2021 NFL Draft is in the books. San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch spoke with reporters after making their eighth and final selection. There has been some speculation that the team might ask quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to restructure his contract this offseason, especially after drafting his eventual replacement — Trey Lance of North Dakota State — with the No. 3 overall pick. There are no plans to do so right now. Why? Because it's not necessary. Even after earmarking over $12 million for its latest rookie class, San Francisco isn't as pushed up against the salary cap as some felt it would be this offseason. Garoppolo remains part of the 49ers' plans for the upcoming season and will be needed to mentor the
