49ers WR Kendrick Bourne Signs RFA Tender

Kendrick Bourne is heading back to San Francisco. The restricted free agent wideout signed his tender with the 49ers today.

Back in March, Bourne was slapped with a second-round tender, an indication that the organization was serious about retaining him. Thanks to today’s official signing, the receiver will earn around $3.27MM next season.

Bourne spent the past three seasons with San Francisco, but he was especially productive between 2018 and 2019. Over the past two years, the receiver has hauled in a total of 72 receptions for 845 receiving yards and nine touchdowns. He’s also appeared in 16 games in each of the past two seasons.

This past year, Bourne appeared in all three playoff games for San Francisco, hauling in a total of six receptions. That included a pair of catches for 42 yards during the 49ers’ Super Bowl loss.

Bourne could have a chance to take on a bigger role in 2020. With Deebo Samuel atop the receiver depth chart, Bourne will compete with the likes of Dante Pettis and free agent addition Travis Benjamin for snaps.

    Will also have to compete with Jalen Hurd (If healthy) and possibly a first round pick.

      I can agree with Hurd making an impact but no to Taylor. Deebo makes him irrelevant

        Wouldn’t count out Taylor. He was one of Garappolo’s favorites when healthy.

        But Taylor and Deebo don’t do the same thing. They would have different spots in the offense.

    Wow, that’s a lot of receivers already mentioned in the article, and still they forgot to mention Hurd and Taylor. If they were to add a draft pick too to the mix… Man… I’m envious, as an Eagles fan . Wish this would be the situation we were facing with our WR group… Smh.

      Perhaps when the 49ers cut their extraneous receivers, the Eagles could swoop in and reap the benefits. Otherwise, I would recommend they spend a day two pick on an abundant draft class and use their first rounder on a much-needed linebacker
