After reportedly signing veteran edge rusher Leonard Floyd to a contract, the San Francisco 49ers turned its attention to one of their own. On Monday afternoon, the 49ers announced they had tendered a one-year contract to restricted free agent pass catcher Jauan Jennings.

Via @49ers on Twitter:

According to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area, the 49ers tendered Jennings at the second-round level and he will now be set to make $4.89 million for the upcoming season.

While the 49ers will still have the chance to negotiate a multi-year deal with Jennings, any other team that attempts to sign Jennings will have to send the 49ers a second-round draft pick if they don’t match the offer.

Jennings has spent three seasons with the 49ers since landing in Santa Clara out of Tennessee from the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Last season, Jennings recorded 19 receptions for 265 yards and a touchdown during the regular season. Jennings broke out in the Super Bowl, catching four passes for 42 yards and a touchdown reception, along with passing a touchdown.
