49ers offseason workout program: Bonuses due to participants

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers offseason workout program gets going on Monday, with the arrival of some portion of the team. The program is voluntary, but numerous players have a financial incentive to be on hand for the program.

Aside from base salaries, signing bonuses, and incentives, many contracts in the NFL include workout bonuses. These cover attendance at the annual offseason workout program that runs from April to June. Colin Kaepernick is the most notable this year due to the trade rumors, with a $400,000 bonus paid out if he attends 90 percent of the program. I don't know if there is a uniform attendance percentage for payment.

Torrey Smith has the highest workout bonus at $1 million. There are a handful of injured players that will be on hand for rehab, which I believe will be enough to earn them their bonuses. This group includes Glenn Dorsey and Antoine Bethea. Dorsey is rehabbing a torn ACL, while Bethea is recovering from a torn pectoral muscle. We'll learn more about where Bethea stands when he arrives on Monday.

Here is a full rundown of the team's workout bonuses, in order of dollar value.
