Aldon Smith paid final offseason roster bonus on August 1

The San Francisco 49ers paid Aldon Smith a roster bonus on Saturday. This marked the final offseason bonus as part of Smith's restructured contract.

The San Francisco 49ers kick off their first practice of training camp later today, but this also marks another notable date. Aldon Smith will receive another offseason roster bonus as part of his restructured option year contract. He received a payment of $300,000, marking his final roster bonus of the offseason.

Smith restructured his contract back in March, shortly before the deal became fully guaranteed. The new deal turned his $9,754,000 base salary into a combination of base salary roster bonuses and incentives. Field Yates previously explained the breakdown:

The remainder of the deal includes $1 million in base salary, 16 roster bonuses for being on the 53-man roster each week this season, and $2 million in incentives. If Smith stays out trouble over the next five months, there is little reason to think he can't hit all the details of his contract. Injury is something that could certainly impact it, but if he can stay healthy, he should be able to earn the full value of the contract.
