Source: Brandon Allen’s $1.080M 49ers contract includes $200,000 guaranteed

The 49ers signed veteran quarterback Brandon Allen to a one-year contract on Monday.

The details of the deal include guaranteed money and keep the door open for him to stay in the regular season as well.

Allen, 30, won’t receive a signing bonus, but his deal includes a fully guaranteed $200,000 of his expected salary of $1.080 million, NBC Sports Bay Area has learned.

A practice squad player with Allen’s level of NFL experience can earn between $289,800 and $370,000 for the season.

Additionally, Allen could earn up to $152,500 in dressing incentives for all 17 regular season games. He is expected to receive nearly $9,000 for every game he fits in as part of the team’s game-day roster.

The 49ers also announced the signings of veteran defensive lineman Marlon Davidson and tight end Troy Fumagalli to one-year contracts.

Davidson was a second-round pick of the Atlanta Falcons in the 2020 NFL Draft. He appeared in 19 games with one start in three seasons. He had 29 tackles, two passes defended, one interception, one fumble recovery and one sack.

Fumagalli, a five-year NFL veteran, was among the 49ers’ final cuts before the start of last season. He spent time on the 49ers practice squad.

Allen becomes the fourth quarterback on the 49ers offseason roster, joining Brock Purdy, Trey Lance and Sam Darnold.

Purdy is the presumptive starter for the 49ers, but it’s unclear if he’ll be cleared of elbow surgery before the start of the regular season. It is expected to begin an approximately three-month launch program next month.
