Wide receiver Ricky Pearsall signed his four-year rookie contract with the San Francisco 49ers, the team announced on Friday.

All contracts involving first-round selections include a fifth-year team option. He will receive $12.5 million fully guaranteed and a $5.9 million signing bonus, per multiple media outlets.

Pearsall, 23, was selected by the 49ers with the 31st overall pick of the 2024 NFL Draft out of Florida. The selection of Pearsall comes with fellow wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk seeking a long-term extension with the team. Aiyuk is set to make $14 million in 2024 to complete his rookie deal.

Pearsall and Aiyuk were teammates for one season at Arizona State. The former transferred to Florida prior to the 2022 season.

Pearsall had a team-high 65 catches for 965 yards and four touchdowns in 12 games last season with the Gators. He totaled 159 receptions for 2,420 yards and 14 scores in five years during his collegiate career.
