Pierre Garcon's deal with 49ers is two years with multiple options

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Of the many free agents the San Francisco 49ers brought in last week, wide receiver Pierre Garcon was undoubtedly the one who came with the highest profile and the biggest price tag.

Garcon signed a deal that at face value was worth up to $47.5 million over five years. But as is often the case, the surface level of a contract isn't the same as what will actually be paid out. In fact, Garcon's deal will pay him $17 million in fully guaranteed money over the first two years with that number rising to $20 million if you include an injury guarantee in Year 2.

It's safe to expect Garcon to be in a Niners uniform for at least two years, but the team holds an option for the other three years on the back end of the deal.
