2:12pm: It is indeed a one-year, minimum salary benefit contract for Osgood, who will receive a $20K first-game roster bonus in addition to a $955K base salary, tweets Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun.
12:45pm: Free agent wide receiver and special-teamer Kassim Osgood will sign a new deal with the 49ers today, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (via Twitter). Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports (via Twitter) that it’ll be a one-year contract.
In his first year with the Niners, Osgood appeared in only 45 offensive snaps and snagged just one reception during the regular season. However, he was a key contributor in kick and punt coverage, compiling an impressive 13 special teams tackles.
Osgood played last season in San Francisco on a one-year, minimum salary benefit contract, and I’d expect a similar deal this time around.
