Brock Purdy is unlike any quarterback who is starting for a Super Bowl contender. The San Francisco 49ers are looking to compete for a championship with a signal caller whose contract makes him one of the lowest-paid players on the roster.

After being selected with the final pick of the 2022 NFL Draft, Purdy signed a four-year contract worth $3.73 million. Purdy's contract includes a base salary of $705,000 for the 2022 season. The Iowa State product received a $77,008 signing bonus.

Purdy's $724,252 cap hit is the third-lowest of any 49ers player who started the season with San Francisco, according to Spotrac.

Purdy's salary is set to increase each year. The 49ers will pay the quarterback a $985,000 base salary in 2025 and a $1.1 million base salary when the contract concludes in 2026.

Purdy's fate with the 49ers beyond this season remains unclear. His contract isn't guaranteed, and San Francisco can easily release the quarterback if he starts playing like a quarterback who nearly went undrafted.

Heading into San Francisco's Week 15 matchup with the Seattle Seahawks on "Thursday Night Football," Purdy has only made one start for the 49ers. The 49ers jumped out to a 28-0 lead against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and San Francisco never trailed. Thursday will mark his first game on the road.

Jimmy Garoppolo's cap hit of nearly $14 million is the highest of any player on San Francisco's roster. Garoppolo restructured his contract or a $6.5 million guaranteed salary to start the season. Garoppolo earned $3.2 million in incentives before getting hurt. The deal includes $29,411 for every game that Garoppolo is on the active roster.

Trey Lance has a $7.751 million cap hit in the second season of his four-year, $34.1 million rookie contract.

Purdy, Lamar Jackson and Jalen Hurts are the only quarterbacks who start for a first-place team in Week 15 and aren't signed to contracts worth at least $100 million.

Jackson is making $23 million in 2022 and seems likely to sign a nine-figure deal after the season. As a second-round draft pick, Hurts is in the third season of a four-year, $6.025 million deal.

Purdy and the 49ers could potentially reach the Super Bowl and face either Patrick Mahomes or Josh Allen, who make $45 million and $43 million per year, respectively.

The latest odds give the 49ers the second-best chance to win the NFC.
