The San Francisco 49ers today announced that restricted free agent WR Kendrick Bourne has signed his one-year tender. Bourne was tendered a one-year contract on March 17, 2020.
In 2019, Bourne (6-1, 190) appeared in all 16 regular season games and registered 30 receptions for 358 yards and a career-high five touchdown receptions. He also saw action in the team’s three postseason contests where he added six receptions for 88 yards and one touchdown.
The second-round tender is not surprising for Bourne, who ranked 10th in the NFL last season in percentage of catches for first downs (23/30, 76.7 percent) in the regular season.
He became the clear No. 3 option and first-down fiend for the 49ers, making consistent, key catches especially on third downs.
