49ers share lead in draft stash after league awards compensatory picks (paywall)

“The 49ers’ 11 picks are tied for the most with the Rams, Cardinals and Packers.”

Report: 49ers re-signing Ben Bartch to one-year contract

“Bartch provided the 49ers with more offensive line depth as starters Aaron Banks and Spencer Burford dealt with injuries. In Weeks 13 through 17 with San Francisco, Bartch was on the field for 28 offensive snaps and 23 on special teams.”

49ers request pre-draft visit with Utah safety Sione Vaki, express interest in Illinois linebacker

““Gamer who does whatever is necessary to help his team win,” Lance Zierlein wrote in the player’s scouting report. “Vaki carries a thick frame with good upper-body power and heavy hands. He took on carries [as a running back] to help his team when it was stung by injuries, but he’s not an NFL running back. He’s a conscientious tackler who is careful to center up and launch his attack only when he’s in realistic striking position.”

Purdy ties the knot with college sweetheart Jenna in Iowa ceremony

“Around 350 attended the wedding, per TMZ, and Purdy’s 49ers teammate and roommate Nick Zakelj was one of his groomsmen.

Wedding bells will continue to ring amongst the 49ers organization this year, as All-Pro running back Christian McCaffrey and his fiancé Olivia Culpo also are expected to tie the knot this offseason.

And while Purdy and the 49ers fell short in bringing a sixth Vince Lombardi Trophy to the Bay Area following a heartbreaking Super Bowl loss last month, Purdy won’t be exiting 2024 completely ringless.”

Source: Armstead set to be released by 49ers, become free agent

“Due to past signing bonuses and contract conversions, Armstead would still count $25.86 million in dead money for the upcoming season. If the 49ers opt to designate it as a post-June 1 release, the dead money would be split over the next two years.

If the 49ers absorb all of the cap hit this year, Armstead’s salary would be completely wiped off the team’s books next year. That is important because the 49ers will need to create more cap space for next year, when the team will be allowed to give quarterback Brock Purdy a lucrative contract extension.”
