The San Francisco 49ers announced that they have signed DL Glenn Dorsey to a two-year contract extension Tuesday.
- Field Yates of ESPN reports that Dorsey receives a two-year contract extension worth close to $11 million.
- Ian Rapoport reports that Dorsey’s contract includes $6.1 million in new money and a total of $2.6 million guaranteed.
- The total value of the Dorsey’s contract can reach $10.975 million, according to Yates.
- Yates adds that the deal includes a signing bonus of $2.075 million, $250,000 bonus for each Pro Bowl selection and $500,000 if he plays over 65 percent of the defensive snaps in a season.
- 2014: $2.3 million base salary with $500,000 guaranteed.
- 2015: $1.5 million base salary, workout bonus of $150,000, $200,000 available in per game roster bonuses.
- 2016: $1.8 million base salary, workout bonus of $150,000, $200,000 available in per game roster bonuses.
The deal also has a $250,000 bonus for each Pro Bowl selection. Additionally, Dorsey has incentives that could escalate to $500,000 if he plays over 65 percent of the defensive snaps in a season.
Dorsey unfortunately suffered a torn bicep a few weeks ago and is expected to miss a large portion of the season.
The 49ers are reportedly still weighing whether or not to place him on injured reserve, but it’s clear that they are high on him moving forward.
Dorsey, 29, signed a two-year, $6 million contract with the team last year and had a base salary of $2.3 million for the upcoming season. He’s now under team control through the 2016 season.
Last year, Dorsey appeared in all 16 games for the 49ers and recorded 41 tackles and two sacks. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 23 defensive tackle in the league and a particularly stout run-defender.
