49ers bag Hearst
Garrison Hearst is staying put after agreeing to a six-year contract that should keep him in a 49er uniform for the rest of his career. ESPN is reporting that Hearst will receive $20 million, including a signing bonus of $3 million. "We are ecstatic to have this done," said G.M. Terry Donahue. "John McVay and Dominic Corsell just did a fantastic job in working with Garrison and his agent (Pat Dye Jr.)." Hearst is coming off a remarkable year in which the former University of Georgia star rushed for 1,206 yards and four touchdowns on 252 carries. He also caught 41 passes for 347 yards and one touchdown. "We all know what he as been through over the past few years, and for him to come back the way he did is a testament to his character," added Donahue. "He brings a wealth of talent and leadership to this organization and we are pleased to have him back with us." Hearst set a team record in 1998 by rushing for 1,570 yards and seven touchdowns before suffering what many thought was a career-ending ankle injury in the NFC Divisional Playoff Game at Atlanta. "I consider myself a 49er and this means I'll probably finish my career there, which is a great thing," Hearst said. "The team supported me through some tough times. They've been very good to me and I'm thrilled to be able to stay."
