Elvis Dumervil contract includes $1.5 million fully guaranteed, option year

Here’s a rundown of Elvis Dumervil’s contract with the 49ers.

The San Francisco 49ers announced the signing of pass rusher Elvis Dumervil ten days ago, and we have some contract details, courtesy of Over The Cap.

Dumervil signed a two-year deal, worth $8 million. He received a $1 million signing bonus, and $500,000 of his 2017 salary is fully guaranteed. He is due to earn a $2.25 million base salary in 2017, and $2.75 million in 2018. In both seasons, he has $750,000 in roster bonuses, paid out at $46,875 per game. The second year of his deal is an option. If the 49ers decide to exercise the option, they will pay him $500,000 on top of his base salary and roster bonus.

Dumervil did not take part in practice during the team’s mandatory minicamp. He was there to observe, and will be a full participant in training camp. Dumervil is coming off a pair of down years, snagging nine total sacks combined over the past two seasons. He played through an Achilles injury in 2015, and then had offseason surgery that cost him part of the 2016 season. He says he is feeling healthy again, so we’ll find out quickly what he has left in the tank.
