49ers Quarterback Brock Purdy’s Extension: A Look at the Negotiation Process and Potential Challenges

49ers owner sees potential in signing Brock Purdy to mega-deal: ‘A promising situation’

Brock Purdy, the quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, has been playing exceptionally well and is currently on a seventh-round rookie scale contract. This has allowed the team to build a strong roster around him. However, Purdy will become extension-eligible next season and may ask for a significant contract if he continues to perform at an All-Pro level.

As the owner of the 49ers, Jed York acknowledges that it is common for elite quarterbacks to demand lucrative deals. He trusts the team’s front office, led by Paraag Marathe, John Lynch, and Kyle Shanahan, to handle the negotiation process. York’s role is limited to signing the check while the rest of the team’s management handles the details of Purdy’s contract.

York is not concerned about potential challenges that may arise with Purdy’s contract negotiations. He understands that the importance of the quarterback position gives them substantial leverage in contract negotiations, regardless of how they compare to other players in the league. If Purdy continues to play at an All-Pro level next season, he will likely be in line for a record-breaking contract that could make him one of the highest paid players in the league.
