Vernon Davis (2006-Present)

September 2010, Vernon Davis had one year left of his rookie contract. The 49ers generously extended an offer for an additional 5 years past 2010, which bumped his total contract up to $42.455M, with a guaranteed amount of $23M. As a result of the ‘new money’, the deal worked out to $7.35M per year. Davis, a 1st round pick in 2006 out of the University of Maryland, was selected #6 overall.
