Brock Purdy gets $739K performance-based bonus

brock purdy

Brock Purdy went from Mr. Irrelevant to Super Bowl quarterback in less than two years.

On Monday, the San Francisco 49ers signal-caller was rewarded financially for his performance in 2023.

Purdy received a $739,795 bonus from the NFL’s performance-based pay program. The league handed out $393.8 million to players who outperformed their salary level based on their playing time.

The bonus check nearly equaled Purdy’s base pay last year, $889,253.

Purdy, 24, was a Pro Bowl selection last year after producing a 12-4 record as a starter, completing 69.4 percent of his passes and throwing for 4,280 yards. He threw for 31 touchdowns and was intercepted 11 times while leading the league in touchdown rate (7.0 percent), yards per attempt (9.6), passer rating (113.0) and QBR (72.8).

He subsequently guided the 49ers to two postseason wins before they fell 25-22 in overtime against the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl.

Purdy entered the NFL as the last pick (262nd overall) in the 2022 draft.

Topping the performance-based pay distribution list was Baltimore Ravens guard John Simpson, who received a $974,613 bonus.

Rounding out the top five were Philadelphia Eagles safety Reed Blankenship ($923,059), Buffalo Bills tackle Spencer Brown ($912,723), Cincinnati Bengals guard Cordell Volson ($905,972) and Miami Dolphins cornerback Kader Kohou ($878,167).

Among the top 25 on the list, Purdy was the lone offensive skill position player.
