We’ve seen a pair of second-round receivers land contracts with their new teams and now things are filtering down to the later round.
Adam Caplan of Sirius XM NFL Radio reports that the 49ers have agreed to terms on a four-year deal with offensive lineman Jason Slowey. The expected total value for the contract is a shade under $2.2 million. Slowey was picked in the sixth round after completing his career as a left tackle at Western Oregon.
Slowey isn’t going to be playing tackle in the NFL, though. The 49ers are planning to move him to the interior of the line, with center a possible final landing spot for a guy who caught scouts’ eyes with his workouts before the draft. If he winds up at center and makes the roster, Slowey would likely back up Jonathan Goodwin.
The 49ers have six other draft picks to sign. Their rookie minicamp opens up on May 11th.
