Brock Purdy is preparing for a substantial payday in 2025, and San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York is fully supportive. 

Engaging in conversation with Bay Area reporters at the NFL’s annual owners meetings in Orlando, Fla., York expressed his enthusiasm regarding the potential for Purdy to become one of the highest-paid players in the league.

York Braces for Brock Purdy’s Contract Blitz

LAS VEGAS, NV – FEBRUARY 11: Brock Purdy #13 of the San Francisco 49ers with his family before Super Bowl LVIII against the Kansas City Chiefs at Allegiant Stadium on February 11, 2024 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Chiefs defeated the 49ers 25-22.

In 2024, Purdy is earning a modest $985,000, which is in line with his current rookie deal. However, once he is able to negotiate a new contract, 

York anticipates that he will seek a deal that reflects his outstanding performance as the starting QB, leading the 49ers to consecutive NFC Championship Games and a recent Super Bowl appearance.

“Brock is set to make an unprecedented request,” York confidently predicted, recognizing the groundbreaking nature of Purdy’s anticipated contract demands. 

He also mentioned the significant increase in salaries for quarterbacks, with numerous players earning more than $40 million per year.

York’s Financial Forecast: Purdy’s Potential Payday

York is well aware of the financial implications of Purdy’s possible blockbuster agreement. Despite the quarterback being on a rookie contract, the 49ers have made significant investments in other positions. 

Nevertheless, if Purdy signs a lucrative contract, the team’s financial situation may be impacted, much like when Jimmy Garoppolo signed his historic deal in 2018.

“When we signed Jimmy several years ago, it was a record-breaking deal in the history of the NFL, albeit for a short period,” York fondly recalled. “However, Jimmy’s earnings reached an impressive $27.5 million.” That’s the way things are, and it’s important to acknowledge the realities of the world.

York emphasized the significance of providing quarterbacks with fair compensation, acknowledging their crucial role not just in football, but in all sports. 

As Purdy’s payday approaches, it’s evident that the 49ers are preparing for a significant financial adjustment that reflects his importance to the team.
