Contract Notes

On November 23, 2019 the 49ers and Kwon Alexander completed a contract restructure.  The team pro-rated a small amount ($333,525) of Alexander's remaining 2019 salary to signing bonus.  Alexander's 2020 was lowered from $11.25 million to $976,235 with the rest paid out as an option bonus on April 1, 2020.  The team added three voidable years to the contract for salary cap purposes.  Alexander's contract will now void on the 5th day of the 2023 waiver period.  This will make Alexander an unrestricted free agent in 2023, same as he was scheduled based on the original contract.

Kwon Alexander signed a four year, $54 million contract with the 49ers. Alexander received $27.5 million in injury guarantees, $14.25 million of which is guaranteed at signing. The full guarantee is made up of an $8.5 million roster bonus, $4 million signing bonus, and $1.75 million base salary in 2019. If Alexander is on the roster on April 1, 2020 his $11.25 million injury guaranteed salary will vest to a full guarantee. There are annual per game bonuses of $750,000.
