Per ESPN’s Field Yates, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Kendrick Bourne signed his one-year tender to remain with the team. The 49ers placed a second-round tender on Bourne earlier in the offseason to keep another team from poaching him away. Placing a higher-round tender on Bourne prevented other teams from signing him. With Bourne signing his new deal, he’ll make $3.2 million this upcoming season and be an unrestricted free agent next offseason.
In 2019, Bourne (6-1, 190) appeared in all 16 regular-season games and registered 30 receptions for 358 yards and a career-high five touchdown receptions. He also saw action in the team’s three postseason contests, where he added six receptions for 88 yards and one touchdown. With Bourne signing his tender, I wonder if this means San Francisco will continue to work out a long-term extension, or if the two sides couldn’t reach an agreement.
Running back Matt Breida also tendered at the second-round level by the 49ers, has yet to sign his tender. He still is eligible to sign an offer sheet with another team.
